PMD Healthcare Giving Away Spiro PDs for World Asthma Day

Spiro PDPMD Healthcare is encouraging the cystic fibrosis community to enter its sweepstakes contest for a chance to win a Spiro PD — a personal spirometer.

The contest is being held to mark World Asthma Day on May 2. But since Spiro PDs are meant for patients with any type of lung disease, PMD Healthcare encourages people with CF to participate in the sweepstakes.

PMD Healthcare will give away five Spiro PDs in the sweepstakese, and entries are being taken via Facebook. The contest started March 9 and will run through May 2.

According to PMD Healthcare, the Spiro PD empowers patients with lung disease to easily, accurately and affordably monitor their lung function anytime and anywhere — at home, at work, at school, at play or while traveling.

The company says Spiro PD can track your lung function trends and alert you of a decline in lung function before you begin to feel symptoms. This helps you anticipate and prevent exacerbations and asthma attacks, and reduce expensive emergency room visits and hospital stays. The company says Spiro PD also enhances medication adherence by enabling you to manage your medications, view your medication history, and set alarms reminding you when to take your medicine, test your lung function, and do breathing exercises. You can also quickly upload lung function data to share with your doctor.
