Patient Spirometry: Determining if a Patient‘s Ventilatory Status has Changed

Using a single sensor at the patient’s airway, patient spirometry enables clinicians to determining a patient‘s ventilatory status, breath by breath, reliably and easily, regardless of the type of ventilator. This poster uses graphs and clinical example to illustrate the concept.

Initial status

Initial status

You can determine if your patient’s ventilatory status has changed by comparing the current loop with one you have already saved. Using a single sensor at the patient’s airway, Patient Spirometry enables you to evaluate your patient‘s ventilatory status, breath by breath, reliably and easily, regardless of the type of ventilator.
