Measuring Nocturnal Cough in Asthmatics by Smartphone-Enabled Acoustic Recording

We want to explore (1) what is the prevalence of nocturnal cough in asthmatics over the course of one month?, and (2) Is nocturnal cough, accounted for sleep quality, a valid prognostic marker for asthma control? Additionally, the study addresses two technical objectives: gather data to develop two machine learning algorithms, which are able to detect nocturnal cough and sleep quality fully automated by means of a smartphone in real-life conditions.
