Remote Patient Monitoring for the Detection of COPD Exacerbations

Article by : Christopher B Cooper, Worawan Sirichana, Eric V Neufeld, Michael Taylor, Xiaoyan Wang, Brett A Dolezal. Background: COPD exacerbations occur more frequently with disease progression and are associated with worse prognosis and higher healthcare expenditure. Purpose: To utilize a networked system, optimized with statistical process control (SPC), for remote patient monitoring (RPM) and […]

Understanding Why Not All FDA-Cleared Spirometers Should Be Used for COPD Patients

Article By: Alex Stenzler, Martin Stegenga The gold standard considered by almost everyone who performs Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) spirometry measurements is, “Does the spirometer meet the ATS/ERS guidelines, and has it passed the 24 waveform tests the Task Force created in 1994”.1,2,3 Overwhelmingly, manufacturers tout their FDA clearance and the passing of the 24 […]

Statistical Process Control (SPC) Improves The Feasibility Of Remote Physiological Monitoring In Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Article by : Christopher B Cooper, Worawan Sirichana, Eric V Neufeld, Michael Taylor, Xiaoyan Wang, Brett A Dolezal. Background: Exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) occur with increasing frequency as the disease progresses and account for poor health status, worse prognosis, and higher healthcare expenditure. Methods: We developed a networked system for remote physiological […]
