If you or a loved one are living with asthma or COPD, you’re not alone. Currently, more than 25 million people in the United States have asthma, and approximately 14.8 million adults have been diagnosed with COPD. It’s also estimated that approximately 12 million people live with an undiagnosed condition.
Protecting our lungs or treating these conditions correctly is critical to gaining a better lifestyle and avoiding major healthcare costs or trips to the ER.
A TruSense for Managing Respiratory Health
If you or someone you love lives with the symptoms of asthma or COPD, TruSense gives you the condition specific tools to stay on top of either condition. If you are at risk of developing asthma or COPD, the daily data logged into your TruSense mobile app (available for free download on all Apple and Android devices) can aid you and your doctor in determining your course of treatment.
Infants, children, adults, seniors – asthma can affect anyone’s quality of life. But the reality is that millions of people live happy, healthy lives while dealing with asthma. The key is to keep your condition or the condition of your loved one in check.
By taking daily spirometry readings to measure peak airflow in the lungs, small size fluctuations of the large airways can be detected, allowing you to more accurately predict an impending asthma attack, as well as assisting in identifying asthma triggers.
TruSense offers home respiratory health products to help you track, manage and report your asthma health for your care provider or for yourself through:
- A spirometer that quickly and easily measures lung capacity.
- The user-friendly TruSense Dashboard, accessible through the free TruSense mobile app for Apple and Android.
- via text message, automated phone call, or email.
- An easy-to-use application which delivers data in a user-friendly way.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) makes everyday breathing a difficult task. Conditions such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema slowly develop over time and can be managed more easily if caught early. But even if you currently live with COPD, it doesn’t have to mean a lower quality of life.
Regular use of a pulse oximeter and spirometer can help you to make better predictions about when COPD symptoms will flare up, giving you a window of opportunity to act early. For example, research has shown that regular FEV1 measurement can help determine the severity of airway obstruction, which can be used to monitor progression severity, improve therapy, and predict treatment outcomes more accurately.
With TruSense solutions for COPD, you can monitor and track your lung health by:
- Using spirometer and pulse oximeter to measure breathing quality and blood oxygen levels. These devices are non-invasive and connect quickly to our easy-to-use mobile application.
- Sharing your health information with your doctor, loved ones, or caregiver in real time via the user-friendly TruSense Dashboard (accessible through the free TruSense mobile app for Apple and Android.)
- Customizable alerts that can be sent via text message, automated phone call, or email.
