Chronic Respiratory Program


"Afflicting more than 16 million Americans, COPD is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States."


How the Program Works (Step by Step)


One Size Does Not Fit All

The medication regimen available to chronic respiratory patients varies from traditional therapy via metered dose inhalers (MDIs) to customized medications tailored to meet individual tolerances and the patient's specific disease state. Individuals vary with respect to their condition, dexterity, coordination and tolerances. As such, in an effort to improve compliance and medication delivery, the Conversio Health team relies on a variety of treatment regimens customized to the individual.


MDI

MDI

Metered Dose Inhalers are the most commonly prescribed treatment for COPD. Unfortunately not everyone is capable of using the device effectively given limitations in dexterity and coordination.

Nebulizer

Nebulizer

For patients lacking dexterity or intolerance to MDIs, or where clinically warranted, nebulized medications are provided. A nebulizer is easy to use and when combined with the right medication, can provide long-acting sympton relief.

Customized Medications

Customized Medications

Patients suffering from Stage III and Stage IV COPD often require specialized combinations of medications containing inhaled corticosteroids. Conversio Health's Specialty Pharmacy customizes medications when necessary.
