PMD Healthcare wants to save lives this Valentines Day with Organ Donation
Date:2/14/2017

ALLENTOWN, Pa., Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone knows that today is Valentine's Day, but did you know that it is also National Donor Day, an observance originally designated in 1998 to raise awareness for organ, eye, tissue, marrow, platelet and blood donation.

"I'm an organ donor, because why wouldn't you be?" said Grace Caroline Larcade, UNC-Chapel Hill student. "When doctors get to the point of wanting to donate your organs, you couldn't use them anyways, so why wouldn't you save a life?" 

95% percent of Americans support organ donation but only 48 percent of the population is registered as donors.

In 2016, there were approximately 2,327 lung transplants, but there are still over a thousand people who remained on the waitlist. Every year, there are plenty of people who's organs could be used to save lives, but there are either unaware or have misconceptions of what organ donation is.

After a lung transplant, patients need to closely monitor their lung function even after they leave the hospital. PMD Healthcare's Spiro PD 2.0 personal spirometer and Wellness Management Platform (WMS) enables patients, their physicians and caregivers to monitor their lung function anytime, anywhere. The Spiro PD 2.0 gives patients accurate data and metrics for pulmonary function tests such as, FVC, FEV 1, and the FEV 1/FEV ratio.

This information is then transferred to the HIPPA compliant online portal through Wi-Fi-technology, enabling doctors and additional care providers to closely watch patients without them being in the clinic, office or the hospital. This allows for quicker detection of complications, which can decrease the need for hospital readmission.

PMD Healthcare urges you to learn more about organ donation and register to be an official organ donor. For more information, visit https://www.organdonor.gov/register.html  

Founded in 2010, PMD Healthcare is a Medical Device, Digital Health, and Chronic Care Management Service Company with a mission dedicated to creating innovative solutions that empower people to improve their healthcare and quality of life.
