When you think of living a healthy lifestyle, do you think about healthy breathing? Breathing is something we don’t think about too much unless you have trouble breathing. Then it’s all you can think about.
Asthma & Allergy Triggers
As an asthma and allergy sufferer, I know what it’s like to worry about whether you will have difficulty breathing. If I’m going to an outdoor event, I have to be sure I know what the weather will be like, will there be animals or plants and how those may affect my breathing. That could mean having to spend most of the party indoors, so I can breathe.
I don’t mind making the shifts for healthy breathing, but often I don’t know what my triggers are going to be. I’ve had asthma since I was a kid, but I know very little about many of my triggers. Often, my breathing feels heavy, but I can’t figure out why. I know I’m allergic to Christmas trees, but what else triggers an asthma or allergy attack?
3MTM Respiratory Tracker will help you and I take control of our breathing as part of living a healthy lifestyle. The tracker is paired with an app on your phone will give you insights into what triggers your asthma and/or allergy attacks. When the tracker detects changes to breathing, you receive an alert from the app that prompts you to input your symptom and triggers.
How the 3M Respiratory Tracker Works
You wear the sleek 3MTM Respiratory Tracker on your pants or bra. And it’s small enough to wear everywhere you go. The app will track the following:
- Weather (temp and humidity)
- Activity level
- Allergens (local to where you are)
- Air Quality
- Additional triggers you input
Taking all of that information in mind, the app will track trends in what triggers the changes in your breathing. If the device senses a change in your breathing, you will be notified via the app and you can take the necessary precautions.
For example, I am allergic to certain types of dogs. I really have no clue which ones except that I know sometimes a dog will trigger an allergy response and sometimes it doesn’t. Maybe it isn’t even the dog, but rather the location of where I’m introduced to the dog. Maybe it has more to do with the humidity levels than the type of dog. I’ve never been able to track that level of detail to figure out what is triggering the attack.
With this tracker, I can input what is going on and give details if I have I do have an allergy attack. The app will take my input and the data it collects and finds trends. Maybe it’s because I tend to run into dogs in the park on humid days when I’m walking instead of running so it’s really the humidity along with pollen levels that are triggering the attack and not the dog I stop to pet.
Instead of avoiding dogs maybe I need to choose which days I exercise outside so I won’t trigger an allergy or asthma attack.
