What if your iPhone could help you get your asthma under control. Your doctor is always asking you about your peak flow readings and your asthma symptoms. Your iPhone might just be able to help you monitor your asthma more effectively and efficiently. Check out these iPhone apps. Why not tell our asthma community what you think.

The Asthma iPhone not for everyone

If the iPhone is like most cell phones and other wireless devices, it can cause interference with many types of hearing aids, and possibly pacemakers and defibrillators. So people with asthma who use these medical devices may not be able to use the iPhone, or other wireless gadgets. I can't get within several feet of people who are carrying a cell phone, without suffering from the interference they cause. Needless to say, I don't own a cell phone, and avoid people who do. Don't invest a lot of money in these gadgets, until you check them out, and know they will work well for you.
