Adherium receives additional FDA clearance for OTC sale of inhaler sensors in the US

Connected inhaler sensor maker Adherium has received 510(k) clearance for US over-the-counter sales of its Hailie sensor, formerly known as Smartinhaler. Specifically, individual versions of the device have been cleared for use with the asthma inhalers ProAir HFA, Ventolin HFA, and Flovent HFA. “This latest clearance kicks off our official entry into the US consumer market, giving the tens of millions of US patients suffering from chronic respiratory conditions their own sidekick for asthma and COPD,” Arik Anderson, CEO of Adherium, said in a statement.

Conclusion: The varied spectra of COVID-19 mostly affects young adult age group (third to fifth decades of life). Interestingly, early age group was also affected in significant proportion when compared with similar data from other countries. It was observed that male population seemed to be was more prone to getting infected. Majority of COVID-19 positive patients (nearly three-fourth) were asymptomatic (mostly in young age range) at the time of diagnosis, which poses a major challenge for health care workers. Fever, cough, sore throat and shortness of breath were major symptoms that could be detected in such COVID-19 pat...

Abstract Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are respiratory conditions associated with a significant economic cost among U.S. adults (1,2), and up to 44% of asthma and 50% of COPD cases among adults are associated with workplace exposures (3). CDC analyzed 2011-2015 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) data to determine the medical expenditures attributed to treatment of asthma and COPD among U.S. workers aged ≥18 years who were employed at any time during the survey year. During 2011-2015, among the estimated 166 million U.S. workers, 8 million had at least one asthma-related medical ev...

The relaxation of the COVID-19 lockdown regulations is raising a lot of questions, both for doctors and for patients. This week, we discuss how the lack of clarity and coherence in public health messages over the past few months has caused anxiety and confusion for our patients, especially those who have been told to shield. We talk about GPs tailoring shielding advice to suit the individuals they treat, the politicisation of mask wearing, and the flaws of ‘abstinence-only’ health messaging. How do we balance prompting overall health, rather than just working to prevent disease, and how do we start taking baby ...

Authors: Sahu KK, Mishra AK, Martin K, Chastain I Abstract Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic has so far led to innumerable deaths worldwide. The risk factors so far that have been most studied as poor prognostic factors are old age, individuals with multiple comorbidities and immunocompromised patients. Amongst the chronic lung diseases, most patients with COVID-19 reported so far had asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and interstitial lung disease. Herein, we discuss the significance of restrictive lung disease during the COVID-19 pandemic as a potential risk factor via...

We thank F. Trinkmann and co-authors for their appreciation of our work and also in raising important questions on the role of small airway function in early detection of lung function impairment associated with asthma and smoking, leading to development of COPD 1]. The focus of our study was not simply on small airway function but rather, the onset and trajectories of lung function impairment associated with asthma and smoking. However, we agree that small airway function is an important part of that assessment. The authors raise two important points in this regard. First, that (at a microscopic level) significant patholo...

We examined the impact of different comorbidities, multimorbidity, lung function and other factors have on survival in COPD and ACO patients. We also examined the causes of death to determine how many patients die of other than respiratory diseases. This retrospective study includes 214 patients with an exacerbation of COPD requiring hospitalisation during the year of 2005. The patients were followed up until the end of year 2015. The survival of ACO patients was significantly higher than COPD patients (4.7 vs. 1.7 years, p = 0.001). Poor lung function predicted worse survival in both patient groups, b...
