For people with asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other respiratory conditions, keeping track of symptoms and medications is crucial for both patient and physician.

For people with asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other respiratory conditions, keeping track of symptoms and medications is crucial for both patient and physician. This information helps people successfully manage their disease, but remembering to update a log or diary can be tough in a busy day, resulting in recorded data that’s inaccurate or incomplete.

Enter Propeller Health, a new device that includes a custom mobile app. Patients get a sensor to attach to the top of their inhaler. This sensor keeps track of the medication the patient uses and where and when it was used. The sensor then uses Bluetooth technology to wirelessly sync with the user’s smartphone and capture the data.

This data gives users personalized feedback and education on ways to improve their condition. It also easily provides a way for the user’s physician to remotely monitor symptoms and help in them determine if a change in therapy and medication is needed.

This is just another way mobile health is improving medicine.
