For US Healthcare Professionals OnlyDistributors
Circassia has developed a series of webinars in order to enable healthcare professionals to learn about Asthma, FeNO and NIOX remotely. With content produced the Circassia Education and Medical Affairs teams, our hour long webinars are facilitated by our Medical Affairs Director Alan Kamada and Lead Nurse for Education and Support Karen Frankland.
In the recent years, studies have looked at asthma not as a single disease but rather as an umbrella diagnosis for several respiratory conditions presenting the same symptoms, but with different molecular mechanisms (endotypes) and variable clinical presentations (phenotypes). In this webinar, we summarize the latest discoveries about asthma to help you navigate the challenges of asthma management.
Airway inflammation is a key component of asthma and FeNO testing quickly assesses airway inflammation at the point of care. After a brief introduction on asthma endotypes and phenotypes, this webinar will deep dive on the use of FeNO testing to support an asthma diagnosis, to manage symptomatic patients despite ICS treatment and to help with the choice of treatment of severe asthma.
The history of NIOX started more than 20 years ago in Sweden as the pioneer in FeNO testing. From ground-breaking innovation to countless clinical studies, we are proud of the device we commercialize today. In this webinar, you will learn everything you need to know about NIOX VERO and why it is truly the device of choice for FeNO testing.
