Karolina was one of the participants in the asthma control evaluation program conducted among asthma patients in Poland organized by FindAir. During the program, she agreed to talk about her experience with the FindAir system and how it has influenced her asthma control.
Problems with the use of emergency drugs
People with asthma often find it hard to remember exactly how many times they had taken their emergency medication. Depending on the day and the situation the amount may vary. It is not always possible to write down or remember the exact number, the day and the time. It is also common that people remember a different number which can also result in less effective treatment later. In a potentially life-threatening situation, no one thinks to write down the amount and circumstances of the use.
I am very happy with the system, as it makes checking the number of daily uses easy. When using the inhaler several times a day, it is quite hard to remember the exact number of doses. Now i can save every usage in the app and view previous data to judge if there is an improvement. Monitoring rescue medication usages is very easy too – just one click and it is recorded. I also like the additional features such as air-condition or allergens display. This is a big convenience as you don’t have to look for this information or have multiple apps because everything is in one place. I think this is helpful because it’s easier for the patient to keep all the information in one place to later show them during the visit.
