What do the results mean?
How does the Pollen Meter work?
The meter will show you a visual indicator of how severe the pollen is in your area. It uses a number called Pollen Grains Per Cubic Metre (PPM) to show how much pollen is in the air. The bigger the number, the worse the pollen. The risk levels are denoted as Low, Moderate, High, or Very High.
What notifications will I get?
If we notice that the pollen is Moderate, High, or Very High, you’ll see a warning on your screen. We’ll also send you a notification to remind you to keep an eye on your health if you have COPD, Asthma, Bronchitis, or Allergies.
When to see a doctor?
If the pollen count is Moderate, High, or Very High and you are Asthmatic, have Allergies, COPD, or Bronchitis; you should make an appointment with your doctor if you observe the following worsening symptoms:
Have a tight feeling in your chest
Are coughing more than usual
Have asthma and need to use your reliever inhaler (usually blue) three times a week or more
