Among all the medical equipment special group of devices can be singled out - the spirometers. These devices are needed to measure flow pressure in upper air passages. Such measurements are very important for treatment from diseases like bronchial asthma or pneumonia. For patients with lung diseases regular monitoring of lung condition is very important. Such measurements are also desirable for people in groups of high risk like smokers and people exposed to occupational irritants. For all of them spirometry measurements every three-four years are needed. If any abnormality is present, it is necessary to perform lung tests and measurements even more often.
Spirometer devices can be pretty simple to perform preliminary measurement (there are special pocket spirometer models available on modern market of medical devices) as well as really advanced pc based spirometer complexes. Such devices as spirometers can be really complex so there are not so many companies that produce them.
Sibelmed is one of such companies - Sibelmed spirometers have gained their reputation of high quality devices through the time of usage. Although Sibelmed has a huge range of different medical products including audiometry and gynecology equipment they are mostly known because of their sibelmed spirometers. Sibelmed is a company based in Barcelona, Spain but their sibelmed spirometers are being used far beyond the borders of Spain and European Union. Sibelmed spirometers help doctors in Russia, Japan, South and North America. To perform complex examinations bigger and more advance devices are needed. And to operate such complex device doctor needs a lot of experience. However sibelmed pc based spirometers make things much more easier. Even people who have never worked with spirometers before can easily operate pc based spirometer. Such spirometer includes mechanical block (with fans and tubes), data block (Hard Disk Drive of ReWritable CD) and specially designed software.
This software allows monitoring data in real time mode and at the same time store it to Hard Disk. Such pc based spirometers allow representing data in several different forms (including special graphs) for better understanding. Computer system also allows storing all the patient data into special database, and the property gives a wonderful opportunity to monitor all the changes of patient`s state. Usually, taken measurements are compared with the predicted values (which are considered to be 100% value). In case of pc based spirometer it is possible to compare a patient`s data with his/her previous results.
All the results can be printed out at any time if needed. Spirometer software has a great help system which can explain every step of measurement. All these qualities make pc based spirometers very easy to use and medical personnel can learn to work with such devices very fast.
