UTA Professor Invents Breath Monitor To Detect Flu 

It’s a revolutionary device that makes it possible to diagnose flu cases at home.University of Texas Arlington Professor, Dr. Perena Gouma, invented a flu breathalyzer.“I think it’s going to save a lot of people a lot of trouble, and a lot of money,” says Dr. Gouma. “Now, someone has to go to the doctor’s office, and the virus can infect other people. It might be an unnecessary visit if they don’t have the flu.”Methodist Mansfield Medical Center ER Physician Ashkan Bidgoli says the method to diagnose the flu virus takes around half an hour.“Right now basically we’re using a nasal swab to detect the flu in all ages,” says Dr. Bidgoli. “It can be uncomfortable and cumbersome, especially for younger kids.”
