PMD Healthcare Announces Support for Actions that People with Asthma or COPD Should Take to Prevent the Flu

Spiro PD enhances medication adherence by letting patients set alarms reminding them when to take their medicine, plus when to test their lung function and do breathing exercises.

The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPTF) has stated that evidence suggests influenza vaccination reduces COPD exacerbations. The USPTF, for a number of years, also has theorized that spirometry may help increase flu vaccination rates among people with COPD, asthma, emphysema, cystic fibrosis, or a lung transplant by helping them closely monitor their lung health.
