Pulmonary Function Tests with a Midmark IQspiro Digital Spirometer November 25 2014

A Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) is a respiratory screening test should be done in every office for every patient exam. The test is quick, easy to perform and can be helpful to detect current or possible respiratory problems. Performing these tests in your office will certainly improve your care offering and patient satisfaction. Plus pulmonary function tests are usually reimbursable by most insurance companies but always check with your local insurance companies for exact coverage.

When Midmark upgraded their original Iqmark spirometer to the next generation Midmark IQspiro system, one of the biggest improvements was the sleek, enhanced design. The IQspiro greatly improved pulmonary function test speed, accuracy and simplicity, three of the most important factors to healthcare professionals.

For starters, the IQspiro only weighs 9 oz and fits in the palm of your hand, giving you blazing speed without restrictions. Detailed test results, with auto-interpretation, are quickly relayed back to the operator, along with accurate diagnosis. Pediatric incentive screens help young test takers understand what they are supposed to do, while also letting them have fun and accomplish a goal. This allows the medical professional to spend less time explaining, and more time focusing on the patient. The quick release mouthpieces allow the user to dispose of the used mouthpiece without touching it addressing concerns of cross contamination. Add to that the IQspiro Digital Spirometer’s seamless integration with most EMR/EHR systems for readouts and reports, so patient records can be easily accessed and stored.
