This past summer we ran three surveys on home spirometry. The goal was to find out what the community knew about personal spirometry and what you thought of it!
The first survey ran from June 14th to June 16th and 481 people took the survey! Thanks to everyone who took it!

41% were caregivers, 53% were patients and 5 percent were Health Care Professionals.
You came from all over the world, but mostly the US (this reflects our membership)
To be continued....
