Tenovi Announces FDA Clearance of Remote Peak Flow Metre (PFM)
Tuesday, April 18, 2023
Tenovi announced that it is launching its cellular-enabled remote Peak Expiratory Flow Metre (PFM). When combined with Tenovi's Cellular Gateway, the device allows patients with asthma to transmit peak expiratory flow rate (PEF) and 1-second forced expiratory volume (FEV1) readings instantly to clinicians.
Remote monitoring of asthmatic patient parameters is highly desirable as it enables healthcare providers to view patient data in real-time, allowing for early intervention and better management of the patient's condition.
Traditional peak flow metres are widely used to measure peak expiratory flow rate (PEF), a key indicator of lung function in asthma patients. However, these devices require manual recording and tracking of readings which are typically only accessible to a patient's provider during an office visit.
The introduction of cellular-based peak flow metre empowers physicians to provide better patient care and allows for significantly better patient adherence compared to the alternatives in the market.
