Pediatric patients admitted for acute lung disease are treated and monitored in the hospital, after which full recovery is achieved at home. Many studies report in-hospital recovery, but little is known regarding the time to full recovery after hospital discharge. Technological innovations have led to increased interest in home-monitoring and digital biomarkers. The aim of this study was to describe at-home recovery of 3 common pediatric respiratory diseases using a questionnaire and wearable device.
