Victoria Atkins MP welcomes new technology in asthma care

Victoria Atkins MP has discussed breakthroughs in asthma treatment with Dr Samantha Walker, Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Research and Policy at Asthma UK.

At the meeting, they looked at a variety of technologies in development, such as smart inhalers that track medication use in real time.  These innovations can help to monitor risk factors, give electronic alerts when the condition is worsening and activate emergency assistance when necessary.

Victoria said,

“With 8,532 asthma suffers in Louth & Horncastle, I thought it important to learn more about these innovative treatments available for asthma sufferers. 

I will be watching with interest to see how local doctors use these developing technologies over the coming years.”
