The study aimed to construct a portable breathing stabilizer that detects and measures pulse rate or heart rate through a sensor that monitors the conditions of an asthma patient to help them undergo proper breathing technique. The device consisted of a speaker and a light emitting diode (LED) that regulates the patient's intake of medicine.

Experimental development and descriptive approaches were the methods used. Four purposively chosen evaluators were requested to assess the portable breathing stabilizer.

Findings showed that the device was practical and convenient to use in hospitals because it could automatically release mist and continue to function whenever the patient's heartbeat is abnormal or irregular.
