What is the ResAppDx Respiratory Cough Test App?

It can be difficult to assess your patient’s respiratory symptoms during a telehealth consultation as a clinical assessment usually requires the use of a stethoscope or a chest x-ray. ResAppDx is a smartphone App that facilitates remote respiratory testing to aid clinicians in the diagnosis of common respiratory diseases affecting children and adults.

The ResAppDx Respiratory Cough Test App allows your clinic to offer the ResAppDx cough test as part of your pre-consultation workflow for patients that are experiencing respiratory symptoms. Test results are then available within your telehealth session directly in the Coviu platform.

How to install the ResAppDx Respiratory Cough Test App

  1. Log in to your Coviu account as you normally would. If you do not have a Coviu account, you can sign up here.
  2. Click Apps on the left side menu of the Dashboard (if you can't see the Apps menu, then you are not the Administrator for your account).
  3. Click Find Apps near the top right corner of your screen. This will take you to Coviu’s App Marketplace.
  4. Once in the App Marketplace, scroll down to find the ResAppDx Respiratory Cough Test App and click it. Follow the prompts to install it.
  5. Return to your Coviu account.

Clients or patients taking the respiratory cough test

  1. When your client or patient joins you on your call, they will be prompted to select the symptom(s) that they are experiencing.

They need to click on the device that they have and click Next.
  3. The test is free; they just need to click Take the test for free.
  4. A unique Cough Test Code is provided for them to use within the ResAppDx App and an instructional video to assist them in capturing high-quality cough sounds on their device.
  5. Using the ResAppDx App, clients or patients can complete the test by providing their date of birth, medical history, symptoms and capturing five coughs.
  6. Their coughs are instantly analysed through the ResAppDx App and the results are stored securely until the consultation begins.
