Who is AIRx Health for?

Monitoring programs can be done from the comfort of your home and are currently offered for high blood pressure (hypertension), stroke, COPD (lung disease), and COVID-19.

We are currently available in California as well as states that allow cross-border licensing waivers due to the current COVID-19 national health emergency.
