Teleflex Inc has released the AsthmaMD Peak Flow Meter, designed to help asthma patients track and measure lung performance.

The device was developed for use with the AsthmaMD smartphone app, which helps patients digitally log peak flow meter readings, track symptoms, medications, and notes.  The app empowers patients to create a digital journal of their asthma activity, according to Teleflex.

Offered currently as a complimentary download by AsthmaMD Inc, the smartphone companion app encourages patients to share their activity with their physician care team via the cloud-based MyAsthmaMD Physician Portal (also offered by AsthmaMD Inc).

“Teleflex is committed to connecting clinicians and patients with technology that improves patient outcomes,” said James Ferguson, President Respiratory Division, Teleflex Incorporated. “Asthma is the third-leading cause of hospitalization in children and Teleflex is proud to now offer the AsthmaMD Peak Flow Meter to help these and other asthma patients.”
