Our predictive tools help patients, families, and clinicians more effectively manage medications and take specific steps to avoid exacerbations caused by poor air quality.
Respiratory illnesses, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), and heart disease, can be caused or worsened by high levels of air pollution. The Think Air #predictair app, which is due to launch in 2022, will help patients and families understand and manage the potential effects of poor air quality on their illnesses.
Key features of the #predictair app will inform users of current air quality in any location, along with the predicted air quality for up to three days.
At Think Air, our own research has revealed a significant correlation between episodes of elevated air pollution and costly COPD exacerbations. Protecting patients from the worst effects of an air pollution episode can reduce distress, prolong life, and reduce the rapidly increasing health care costs of hospitalisation.
Understanding the insights and dynamics of historical, live, and predicted outdoor air quality is critically important for manufacturers, environmental consultants, regulators, politicians, media and influencers.
