Cystic Fibrosis Patients’ Pulmonary Monitoring iPhone App Could Flag Up Infections Earlier, University of Pennsylvania Study
Published: Sep 26, 2012
A University of Pennsylvania student and a paramedic who both have cystic fibrosis have developed a digital spirometry test iPhone app to monitor pulmonary function from home. The co-founders of Sixth Sense Healthcare Innovation believe their device could change the way respiratory medicine and pulmonary monitoring is done. They discussed the app and the relative scarcity of home monitoring devices available for cystic fibrosis patients at the e-Patient Connections conference in Philadelphia this week.
