A wheeze is a lower respiratory tract symptom caused by the patient’s airway narrowing. It is a whistling sound from the chest which is mainly heard on breathing out. Wheezing is highly prevalent in young children, with approximately one-third of the children having at least one wheezing episode by age nine.1 A wheeze is also the most common symptom associated with asthma in children under five. Identifying a wheeze, however, can be a challenge. This symposium will focus on digital support in this challenge.
