What is the Vitalograph Pneumotrac and What Is It Used For?
The Vitalograph Pneumotrac is a powerful and flexible respiratory diagnostic device suitable for testing adults and pediatrics. As the ‘Gold Standard’ for spirometric airflow measurement, it is the best possible system available for practices looking to upgrade their spirometry system.
Combined with the Spirotrac 6 Software, it is a full featured desktop spirometry system that can integrate with your PC, laptop or tablet. By utilizing V-Core technology (Fleisch style), it provides results with accuracy and precision from each breath measured. With little or no airflow resistance, it is suitable for even the youngest or frailest of patients being tested.
Most Common Use Cases:
- Evaluation of respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, wheeze, ect)
- Diagnosis and classification of chronic respiratory diseases (asthma, copd, pulmonary fibrosis, interstitial lung disease, cystic fibrosis, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, sleep apnea, ect)
- Measurement of disease progression and trends
- Document airway response to medications

Why Would I Need To Replace My Midmark Spirometer?
Because Midmark No Longer Sells Its Digital Spirometer
In July of 2022, Midmark sent out a memo to all of its clients informing them that it would discontinue its Digital Spirometer product as of October 7th, 2022. If your organization relies upon diagnostic spirometry data, it is important that you upgrade your system as soon as possible to preserve a valued revenue stream. Not only is the Midmark Spirometer quickly becoming obsolete, but replacement parts and support are non-existent. In order to guarantee compliance with best practices and prevent undue down time, updating your spirometry system is imperative.
Is Your Spirometry System Up-To-Date?
Did you know that COPD, a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs, is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States. With over 12 million people estimated to have the disease, a patient dies from it every four minutes. What these alarming statistics reveal is that having a reliable and effective spirometry system is critical to your practice – even life-saving. While the Midmark Spirometer was innovative when it first hit the market, it has since been surpassed by products with better technology, namely the Vitalograph Pneumotrac, a superior system that is more accurate and convenient.
What Makes It Better Than The Midmark Spirometer?
The highest precision accuracy combined with disposables (to maximize ROI) to the EMR compatibility and innovative flow technology, there are a number of reasons why the Vitalograph Pneumotrac is a superior Midmark Spirometer replacement.
EMR Compatibility: Unlike the Midmark Spirometer, the Vitalograph Pneumotrac is EMR compatible.
A major feature included with this system is the Vitalograph Connect Tool, a middleware solution to integrate Spirotrac with client’s EMR (electronic medical record). This innovative software solution is completely agnostic which means it is compatible with ALL EMR’s. Therefore, all that is needed is to input the parameters and all of the information is sent and received automatically, according to the EMR standard. Never before has it been so easy to automate your spirometry data connection with the EMR!
Flow Technology: The Vitalograph V-Core Flowhead Technology is the gold standard in the industry.
With a core of air capillaries engineered from stainless steel, Vitalograph flowheads are extremely robust and long-lasting. Also, considering there are no moving parts, makes for a low maintenance and practical choice where frequent spirometry testing is required.
Backed By a 5 Year Manufacturer Warranty
Vitalograph believes in their product robust nature so much that they extend a standard 5 year warranty to protect your investment.
