Respiratory Navigator Toolkit
The ultimate set of tools for any clinician to assess disease staging (via GOLD Scoring) and evaluate medication technique and deposition for risk assessment and successful management strategies.
Includes: COPD6 Screener (USB), Vitalograph AIM™ & Testing Supplies.
The USB COPD screener (SKU: 40451) is a valuable device that serves as a home monitor and also a screener prior to spirometry. The USB COPD screens out those who have normal FEV1's, therefore those who do not have COPD, without the risk of false COPD negatives. This capability allows spirometry resources to be focused on the highest risk patients. This device measures FEV1, FEV6, ratio, lung age, for GOLD COPD assessment. Accepts input of age, gender, height, and race and calculates predicted value and percentage predicted. The USB feature adds the capability of computerized COPD stage screening reports via included Vitalograph Reports software.
The Vitalograph AIM™ (Aerosol Inhalation Monitor SKU: 45710) is designed to assist medical practitioners in training subjects to use their inhaler correctly. Teaching patients correct techniques will result in more accurate drug delivery and ultimately better disease management. The AIM uses a single-use disposable inhaler to provide its feedback on the correct technique including Inspiratory acceleration at the start of inspiration, the timing of the firing of MDI/ Activation of DPI, inspiratory flow rate throughout inspiration, and breath-hold time at the end of inhalation.
