ATS 2015 exhibitors will describe options that address the diagnosis and treatment of COPD, asthma, and other respiratory conditions.

COPD and asthma are ranked the highest by ATS International Conference attendees as their topics of interest, which is reflected in the many sessions that will be available at ATS 2015. In the ATS 2015 Exhibit Hall, attendees will learn more about options that will help them diagnose and treat these and other respiratory conditions.

In Booth 639, Boston Scientific Corporation will showcase the Alair Bronchial Thermoplasty System, the first FDA-approved non-drug therapy for adult patients with severe asthma.

Methapharm, Inc. in Booth 647 will offer two new training videos to help professionals maintain best practices in asthma diagnostics, either through training of new technicians or refreshing the more experienced individuals. The first covers “Mixing Methacholine Dilutions for Bronchoprovocation Challenge Testing,” and the second video is “Performing a Methacholine Challenge Test.”

Nonin Medical Inc. will present its white paper on active co-management of acute and chronic COPD phases in Booth 937. The company also is able to make arrangements to introduce you to industry experts and provide a sneak peek of its new COPD Patient Hospital 30-Day Readmission Reduction Program.
