    • Abstract:
      Three sub-studies (I-III) were conducted among health workers, children under five and their caregivers, and national stakeholders sought to identify and evaluate the most accurate, acceptable and user-friendly respiratory rate counting devices and pulse oximeters for diagnosis of pneumonia symptoms and severity in children by frontline health workers in low-resource settings. Frontline health workers were able to use the nine test devices to measure RR and oxygen saturation in children under 5, but with variable performance, and found it more difficult to get a successful measurement in younger children. Frontline health workers were better supported by assisted RR counters, such as Rrate and respirometer, compared to their standard practice diagnostic aid, MK2 ARI timer. Handheld pulse oximeters with multiple probes performed better than fingertip pulse oximeters, especially in younger children. The views of different stakeholder groups should be considered when looking to take these types of pneumonia diagnostic aids to scale.
