How you can benefit
Asthmatics often find it difficult to assess the degree of inflammation in their bronchial tubes themselves. FeNO readings provide you with an objective measurement. The Vivatmo breath analyser now offers you the possibility of measuring this value quickly and easily from the comfort of your own home. You can determine it anytime, anywhere – even when traveling.
Regular FeNO measurement helps you and your doctor optimally adjust your therapy.
Keeping the disease in check
FeNO measurement allows you to regularly monitor the extent of respiratory inflammation. This can help to reduce acute asthma episodes. A worsening of the inflammation is indicated by increased values1, allowing your doctor to adjust your therapy at an early stage, for example by increasing the dose of your medication.
Keeping a record of your FeNO values allows you to track how your body is responding to your anti-inflammatory meds. This can be of interest, for example if you’ve been prescribed a new treatment or generally want to adjust the dosage in consultation with your doctor. 2,3
