Get more from PowerLung by reading these books!Did you know that PowerLung recommendations and training programs have been part of books almost since it was introduced? PowerLung is pleased to be included in these publications but what makes us proud is that these authors are providing independent recommendations of our product. Each of them purchased the product, used it, and then documented their use and recommendations.

As a matter of fact PowerLung usually finds out about these recommendations after the author requests to use the Trademark or product image. Sometimes we don’t know until someone who says they bought PowerLung because they read about it!

Continue reading for examples of authors who have used PowerLung and shared their recommendations in their books.

This is a personal story of 3 people diagnosed with COPD and their experiences in dealing with it with new treatment methods. Not only have they documented their path, they have formed a group, with support from medical professionals, to provide information to others.
