Asthma can be a difficult diagnosis, as it is a lifelong disease that causes inflammation and swelling of the airways. Symptoms often range in severity, and can include shortness of breath, coughing, and chest pain. Despite it being such a common disease, as 1 in 13 Americans are asthmatic, many people still struggle with properly monitoring their asthma (AAFA, 2022). Properly monitoring asthma can reduce the number of asthma attacks an individual may experience, as well as more serious complications like hospital visits or emergency surgery.
Managing asthma from the comfort of one’s own home is often ideal for those that struggle with it, as it is far more convenient and cost-effective than frequent doctor visits. This is why medical devices such as spirometers are so useful for asthmatic patients. So, what is spirometry exactly? Spirometry is a lung function test that measures how much air you can breathe in and out of your lungs, as well as how easily and fast you can blow the air out of your lungs. These measurements can be expressed as Force Vital Capacity (FVC) and Forced Expiratory Volume (FEV).
At-home digital spirometers, such as our SpiroLink®, are especially beneficial for individuals that suffer with chronic asthma as they monitor pulmonary function and the effectiveness of daily breathing treatments. With the SpiroLink®, users can record their breathing data on our innovative app and present precise respiratory data to their physician for further professional review. Our digital smart spirometer is specifically designed to be durable and efficient due to a unique pressure sensing system.
We also have an upcoming app designed specifically for people that suffer from asthma. AsthmaGo™ is a self-management solution that seamlessly connects to smart, home-use medical devices. When paired with CMI Health devices, users can easily measure, organize, and share their pulmonary condition data with their physician or family members. This provides a complete and precise picture of health conditions in real-time. Users can also log their daily symptoms, medication use, and more, allowing for enhanced self-management of personal diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits. Activation of low oxygen and high pulse rate alarms can alert the user to an oncoming or ongoing Asthma attack.
Finally, asthma inhalers are extremely useful for treating unfavorable symptoms and conditions. Asthma inhalers are hand-held, portable devices that deliver medication to your lungs (Mayo Clinic, 2022). A variety of asthma inhalers are available to help control asthma symptoms, such as metered-dose inhalers, dry powder inhalers, and soft mist inhalers.
Living with asthma can be challenging —especially when you are first learning how to monitor and measure it. We at CMI Health work tirelessly to provide those living with asthma or other chronic respiratory conditions with the proper equipment to monitor and manage their lung health on a day-to-day basis.
