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.

Apple Health App: How It Has Helped Me Manage Transplant
There has been much buzz on both sides of the fence in healthcare about the recent news articles concerning the Apple Health app.
Review: Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer
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.

Company Profile: AidCube: (Press Release) Lung Transplant Patients use Telehealth at Home
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.
Review: Tricella (Liif) Pillbox
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.
Health Tracking Fatigue
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.
