We had the great pleasure to meet with Dr. Ian Pavord (University of Oxford, Oxford, UK) and Dr. Simon Couillard (University of Oxford, Oxford, UK and University of Sherbrooke, Sherbrooke, Canada) to learn about the OxfoRd Asthma attaCk risk ScaLE (ORACLE), a proof-of-concept scale to predict asthma attacks. You can view the prototype Oxford Asthma Attack Risk ScaLE (ORACLE) here.
The abstract ‘A proof-of-concept scale to predict asthma attacks: the OxfoRd Asthma attaCk risk ScaLE (ORACLE).‘ was presented at ATS 2021 International Conference, 14-19 May, 2021.
1. Could you give us an overview of how the ORACLE scale works? (0:31)
2. Could you give us an overview of your proof-of concept study and its findings? (4:44)
3. What were the limitations of this study and what will be the next steps in the validation of this scale? (8:21)
