“Smart” Inhalers For Asthmatics In Louisville, Kentucky

FastCoExist covers a project in Louisville, Kentucky where Asthmatics have been given smart inhalers that collectively help to track air pollution and low air quality. The use of the inhalers is tracked along with data from air quality sensors across the area. The hope is that combining the air quality measurements with use of medication, researchers will gain a better understanding of how the connections between air quality, environment and weather conditions combine to trigger asthma attacks.
