A Fitbit-like wearable device may soon help diagnose and treat asthma and other respiratory diseases, thanks to scientists who have developed a graphene- based sensor that can detect inflammation in lungs. The sensor created by researchers at Rutgers University New Brunswick in the US could lead to earlier detection and management of looming asthma attacks, preventing hospitalisations and deaths.

Today’s non-invasive methods for diagnosing and monitoring asthma are limited in characterising the nature and degree of airway inflammation, and require costly equipment that patients can’t keep with them.
