The use of healthcare technology in homes is increasing. This article details an electronic home spirometry unit used by lung transplant patients. The unit can also be used with other populations including persons with asthma or cystic fibrosis, or persons awaiting transplants. Home health nurses are in a prime position to assist patients in using technology that provides direction for the treatment regimen.
