PulmoScale works with all inhalers currently available in Australia and has the capability to custom input more inhalers, meaning new entries to the market can be added.
If your inhaler says that it contains 200 doses, then you get only 200 reliable doses. It will release propellant for another 60 to 85 puffs, but that aerosol may not contain enough active ingredient to stop an asthma attack.
When an asthmatic presents to an emergency department with an empty inhaler, they haven't just run out of medication. They may have been out of medication for as many as ten days. In that time, their unchecked asthma would steadily deteriorate, increasing the odds that even a minor asthma trigger would compel them to seek emergency treatment.
PulmoScale has an important role in doctor's offices, pharmacies, hospitals, extended care facilities, and in any environment charged with the wellbeing of Asthmatics and sufferers of COPD.
PulmoScale is the only device, outside of a research lab, programmed to use the weight of an inhaler's contents to accurately determine the number of doses remaining.
PulmoScale delivers 98% accuracy by focusing on what actually remains inside the canister, regardless of an inhaler's propensity to leak or misfire, or how it is handled by the patient.
