Allentown, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
The United States Adult Cystic Fibrosis Association, Inc. (USACFA) recognizes PMD Healthcare as a Gold Benefactor in an upcoming issue of its journal CF Roundtable. PMD Healthcare manufactures Spiro PD, the world’s first and only personal spirometer.
For over 20 years as a non-profit organization, USACFA has provided education and support to adults who have cystic fibrosis as well as to their family members and caregivers.
Recently, USACFA President Laura Tillman participated in a Spiro PD webinar entitled Making Every Birthday Count. To listen to the webinar, visit http://spiropd.com/get-more-information/.
As the world’s first personal spirometer, Spiro PD empowers people with lung diseases – cystic fibrosis (CF), asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchitis, emphysema, and lung transplants – to easily and accurately monitor their breathing any time and anywhere: at home, at work, at school, at play, or while traveling.
Helping patients monitor and prevent breathing problems can reduce expensive emergency room visits and hospital stays. In addition, Spiro PD enhances medication adherence by enabling people to manage their medications, view medication history, and set alarms reminding them when to take medicine. Plus, Spiro PD allows patients to quickly upload their data to share with their doctor.
Says Wayne Meng, Founder, Chief Executive Officer, and President of PMD Healthcare, “We are honored to be associated with the USACFA. The work they do for the cystic fibrosis community – especially by providing a forum for an exchange of ideas – is truly inspiring.”
