The FlowBrush™ is a combination toothbrush and electronic spirometer. It allows people with moderate to severe, persistent asthma to measure their lung function (FEV1) each morning just after brushing their teeth.
This FEV1 data is wirelessly transmitted via the Verizon network to Get Well Urgent Care's database cloud for daily analysis. When tracked daily, FEV1 readings can predict asthma attacks before they occur. If you or your child's FEV1 readings begin to drop, our trained asthma care coordinators will call and help you implement the asthma action plan provided by your physician. Our asthma care coordinators may ask you to travel to the nearest urgent care clinic for preventive (pre-symptomatic) treatment.
The FlowBrush is the central component of an asthma monitoring network called the FlowBrush Asthma Surveillance Telemedicine or FAST system. The FAST system exists for one reason ... to help asthmatics begin preventive care BEFORE wheezing and coughing begin and expensive, emergency room care or hospitalization is necessary.
