HGE Health has been a real game-changer in our clinical practice. A professor of mine in medical school once told me, “you can never turn your back to severe COPD—When you do, it will bite you.” Getting bitten used to simply mean a poor clinical outcome.

HGE Health allows you to never turn your back on COPD while adding little, if any, work to your daily list of things to do.
