Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Feedback on breath sensor setup, experience and use [ Time Frame: 3 months ]

    Gather participant feedback on breath sensor setup:

    Participant is asked:

    1. How would you rate the ease or difficulty of getting started with the breath sensor?
    2. How would you rate the ease or difficulty of following the directions on the breath sensor screen?
    3. If you ever got an error on the breath sensor screen, how easy or difficult was it to understand the issue and correct it?
