PMD Healthcare Inc, Allentown, Pa, now offers the Spiro PD, a personal lung health monitoring device. Recently cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Spiro PD is personal spirometer that enables patients with lung diseases, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, and lung transplants, to monitor their lung function.
