Effective Medical Device Use - Helping Clinicians Monitor Patients Respiratory Health

Fortune Onwuzuruike*, Nick Delmonico and Sweta Sneha

A respiratory monitoring medical device can assist clinical providers and the medical staff with real-time data to make life-changing decisions on time. Health care providers are starting to analyze the outcomes and studies of pulmonary diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Congestive Heart Failure (HF) and Asthma. Monitoring the patient's respiratory health before the pulmonary disease starts to escalate should be a priority as innovation continues to grow in the healthcare arena. Wearable medical devices can reduce healthcare expenses, reduce readmission, and improve the quality of life for patients. This research paper will help further identify the gaps in adverse consequences when dealing with COPD, HF, and Asthma. Furthermore, the research will highlight populations that are at most risk and up and coming respiratory patient monitoring devices that are penetrating the healthcare space. Respiratory patient monitoring devices through telehealth can reduce healthcare costs, reduce readmission, increase clinician efficiency, and allow the physician to have a more proactive approach regarding patients' respiratory health.
