Application Administration Model:
Achieving Wellness After Illness as a Teen (AWAIT), is an app-based behavioral intervention aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles – specifically targeting physical and mental health and positive health behaviors – among adolescent cancer survivors.
The app will allow participants to track their mood daily across different dimensions (e.g., anxious, happy, bored, determined) and also facilitate engagement with a coach, who will conduct phone-based weekly sessions with participants.
Our team has pioneered an app-based behavioral intervention called Achieving Wellness After Illness as a Teen (AWAIT), aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles – specifically targeting physical and mental health and positive health behaviors – among adolescent cancer survivors. This study will test whether adolescents and their guardians will use AWAIT, a version of AWAKE adapted for an adolescent cancer survivor population and whether they will like it. We will also determine if adolescents using the program will have increased hope, quality of life and healthy behaviors (healthy diet, adequate physical activity and decreased screen time) and if any characteristics predict improved findings. The app will be used to provide educational materials, presented as a powerpoint that is recorded with voice over and a homework assignment associated with each week's topic. The app will allow participants to track their mood daily across different dimensions (e.g., anxious, happy, bored, determined) and also facilitate engagement with a coach, who will conduct phone-based weekly sessions with participants. Through the app we will send notifications and reminders to watch modules, complete homework assignments, track mood daily and reminders for upcoming coaching call appointmentsThe first breathing exercise app of its kind for patients with COPD and Asthma. This app coaches users to practice a phonetic breathing exercise that promotes deep breathing and well-being.
Progressively hyperextended alveoli leading to the destruction of lung parenchyma is the basic pathophysiology for development of emphysema and COPD. Increase the length of exhale deeper and slower and make it as smooth as possible are fundamental to ensure the alveoli not going overextend or to collapse or collapse with positive end expiration pressure being maintained at 0cm H2O pressure which is equal to the atmosphere pressure. The common obstacles are related to inconsistency on the instructions on how to be able to breathe effectively. Exheale coaching program strategically selects words that promote longer exhalation with loose lip closure. For example, the word "woof" is used in one of the exercises. The instructions ask the participants to pay close attention to the inhale to exhale timer. Inhale with open mouth while silently saying "woo" in one to two second. Then, exhale with lips loosely closed while making the second part of the word "f" as long as you can. The emphasis is on the resistive phonation during the exhalation and prolongation of the exhalation as the exercise progressively getting harder.
