A complex combination of genetic, microbial, and environmental variables influences the development and progression of chronic respiratory disorders. For a study, researchers examined the effects of environmental exposure on asthma, allergic rhinitis, and chronic rhinosinusitis in this section. They also explored how digital health technologies may help patients measure their environmental exposure and how it might be beneficial to them. It was well recognized that if one was sensitized and then exposed to the same allergen, one may develop allergy symptoms. Viruses, germs, pollutants, irritants, and lifestyle variables alter the chance of being sensitized and developing symptoms or may cause symptoms to occur. Understanding these processes and how the many components interact with each other and the human body necessitates the use of large amounts of data and advanced statistics. Mobile health technology enables the integration of many sources of patient exposome data and links these to patient outcomes. The technologies might aid in knowing the progression of chronic respiratory illness.

The use of digital technology in clinical practice might influence the development of preventative therapies for chronic respiratory disorders in the future, ultimately improving patient outcomes.
