I signed on to be a beta tester for this device a few weeks ago, maybe it’s a month or more now. (Things have been kind of a whirlwind). I was excited when I received the package with the Myspiroo because it’s a smart phone spirometer, which I have been hoping for even before I was transplanted.
I hadn’t done a review in awhile because I had my nice little arsenal of health stuff. Recently I had to make some changes. One was prompted from getting a case of breakthrough oral thrush after a change in some medicines. The other was because I finally made the leap to get an iphone 7plus since I was due for an upgrade.
One of the things that happened after my lung transplant was that I became diabetic from the high amount of steroids they give us.
It’s been a moment since I’ve done a review. This is partially due to not receiving some of the things I’ve backed just yet.
Still, I came across something fascinating & that I was lucky enough to receive a discount on the package in exchange for doing some user testing & exchanging feedback. I was so happy I did.
I have pretty much tried everything I can to help me when I have trouble sleeping.
I can’t take Melatonin because it interacts with some meds, Valerian I save only for mild sedation because with my kidney issues I can’t take it very often.
I’m big on telehealth. I think it has potential because I’ve seen it work in rare disease, but here’s an interesting use I have found in Lung Transplant.
Kudos to UCSF for being so forward-thinking! Thank you AidCube for recognizing this critical need.
This is especially important for those candidates who are a distance away from their transplant center.
Pulmonary rehabilitation is a critical component not only for transplant surgery but a useful tool to learn how to exercise safely & consistently with lung disease.
Before I knew about the Transplant Hero App & PillSuite, & while I’m waiting for Dr. Poket, I found the Tricella smart pillbox. When it came to me I decided it was too small for me to use every day. I figured it still might work for travel or just for my vitamins alone. So I decided to try it out.
I make no secret of how many apps & devices I use to manage my health. I started out a little over a year ago with a Jawbone to help me drop a few pounds to find out whether my breathing would improve then it lead to more devices & apps.
