Objective: We aim to test this system in 20 participants with P aeruginosa colonization and 10 controls with Haemophilus influenzae.
Methods: We plan to recruit 30 adult participants with COPD or non-CF bronchiectasis who have cultured P aeruginosa or H influenzae during an exacerbation in the last 6 months. They must produce sputum on most days and should have been stable for 4 weeks prior to entry. Daily data collected will include symptoms, health care usage, medication, weight, FEV1, physical activity level, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and temperature. Sputum and urine samples will be provided daily. These data will be analyzed to assess predictive value in detecting upcoming exacerbations. Qualitative data will be gathered through self-administered questionnaires and semistructured interviews to gather information on participant coping and their use of the technology involved.
Results: Recruitment has been completed and results from the study should be available at the end of 2017.
Conclusions: The SENSOR study aims to test a home-monitoring system in people with chronic airway infection and is currently underway.
