Spirometry with the smartphone

Dear Sir or Madam,

Patients with chronic lung diseases need to have their health checked continuously, because a deterioration of their condition can have severe consequences. Until now, such check-ups with spirometry have made a visit to the physician necessary. Read in our current interview, how lung patients can save themselves this trouble by checking their health with the smartphone in the future.

Have a sunny week,

Timo Roth
