How it Works

DigiBreathe - How it works

The DigiBreathe™ wireless pulmonary monitoring system uses DigiSensor™ Disposable Pads that allow for remote, real-time monitoring. The pads are single-patient use and low cost.

Paired with a bedside monitor, you get readings sent to any device so you can provide the best care to your patients.

First – The DigiSensor™ disposable pads can be paired with a bedside monitor for hospitalized patients, allowing the patient’s doctors and nurses to all hear and see the same, accurate lung function.

For the athlete with breathing problems, or the mom caring for a child with asthma, the DigiSensor™ disposable pads can be paired with a smartphone. The visual display and lung sounds can be observed in real time, saved, and even emailed to their healthcare professional.
