Which Spirometer is best for your office? July 23 2015
As the stores begin to display their “back to school” supplies and prepare for the rush of eager children and parents, we at MonsterMed are preparing Pediatricians with the best supplies and equipment to perform annual physical exams. If your office does not perform pulmonary function testing during their physical exams, now is the time to start. If your office already is testing, then now is the time to upgrade your device.
We at MonsterMed offer the best quality spirometers on the market today…devices like the Midmark Iqspiro PC Based Spirometer, the NDD EasyOne Diagnostic Spirometer and the Welch Allyn SpiroPerfect PC Based Spirometer. But how do you choose the unit that is best suited for you? Let’s take a play from our Product Battle Posts and compare these three units in Price, Aesthetics and Features.
Pricing plays a huge role in deciding what medical equipment is best for your office. At MonsterMed, we pride ourselves on keeping the prices as low as possible and the lowest online anywhere. If price is your largest factor in choosing a spirometer for your office, then look to the NDD EasyOne Plus Diagnostic Spirometer. Packages start at under $1,500.00 for a device that has an amazing track record. NDD focuses their offering strictly on pulmonary devices, solidifying themselves as one of the leaders in the industry.
In an era where simplicity is king, the Welch Allyn SpiroPerfect PC Based Spirometer is as simple as they come. The unit looks like a USB flash drive with a cord and a mouthpiece attached, making it an ideal device for space conscious offices. The small and simple design keeps kids calm and comfortable. Welch Allyn has mastered design with the simplest approach, making it the device for Aesthetics focused customers.
While price and aesthetics are import to some, features are important to others. The Midmark Iqspiro PC Based Spirometer has been molded, shaped and polished with the device operator and patient in mind. Lightweight and portable, the Midmark Iqspiro can be brought from room to room with ease. The incentive screen engages children with fun activities to keep their focus and practitioners can easily dispose of the mouthpiece without ever touching it, saving time and money by not needing exam gloves.
Any one of these three units will be a win for your office…but the real winner is your patient. They will have a pulmonary test done during their annual physical exam, which can detect issues that would otherwise have gone unnoticed and treated. Still need help deciding which unit is best for you? Give MonsterMed a call so we can help!
It’s time for another Product Battle! This time we are pitting Midmark’s IQSpiro Digital Spirometer against NDD’s EasyOne Diagnostic Spirometer. Both of these units have a couple of tricks up their sleeves, so let’s get to it….Fight!!!
NDD EasyOne Plus Diagnostic Spirometer is far less expensive then the Midmark IQSpiro Digital Spirometer. Keep in mind, price does not always dictate a products quality. One thing that does stand out is NDD’s warranty. The EasyOne carries a three-year warranty vs the IQSpiro’s one-year warranty. Combine the length of the warranty with the unit price, and the NDD EasyOne Diagnostic Spirometer takes the price category, hands down!
Midmark has a talent in the art of making their products look forever young. The Midmark IQSpiro Digital Spirometer has a sleek and vertical design. This vertical design is important because it also makes the Spirometer easier to use with one hand. Because of the NDD EasyOne’s elongated horizontal design, one-handed use is not as easy as the Midmark iqSpiro. The Aestetics category has to go to Midmark.
Now lets have some fun! The features of these two devices are where they really differentiate. While the function of Spirometers are basically the same for all devices, features make a huge difference in how the device is used. To reduce cross contamination, the spirometer mouthpiece should not be touched once a patient has used it. The IQSpiro has a quick mouthpiece release to avoid contact with used mouthpieces. The NDD EasyOne Diagnostic Spirometer offers more portability than the Midmark IQSpiro since it does not have to be connected to a PC for use. Both devices have incentive programs for patients, making it easier to understand what they are suppose to do. This is especially useful for children.
These two landed some heavy blows to one another, but in the long run you cannot go wrong with either unit. If you are looking for a more inexpensive device that gives you a better warranty and is more portable, choose the NDD EasyOne Diagnostic Spirometer. For something that is more computer based with user friendly software,the Midmark IQSpiro Digital Spirometer is the device for you.
