RP CHECK - RESPIRATORY PRESSURE METER

RP CHECK – RESPIRATORY PRESSURE METER

The RP Check is a handheld respiratory pressure meter measuring mouth and nasal pressures (MIP, MEP and SNIP).

Small, portable and lightweight, the RP Check allows paediatric and adult patients to be tested with ease in various settings including bedside and Out-patient clinics as well as preoperative assessment situations.

The RP Check can be used as a battery operated, standalone device, saving the last patients results on the unit for report creation.

Alternatively, the RP Check can be connected to PC software for upload of results or alternatively connected for “live testing” on the PC software for immediate report creation. Results are instantly displayed on a large backlit display allowing multiple tests to be performed per patient and concise user guidance, so compliance with ATS/ERS reproducibility can be achieved – ensuring quality test results are achieved. Pressure traces can be viewed on screen for each individual manoeuvre along with reproducibility guidance.

SNIFF NASAL INSPIRATORY PRESSURE

SNIFF NASAL INSPIRATORY PRESSURE

Parameters measured (displayed in cmH2O):

Mouth pressures:

MEP   –  Maximum expiratory pressure

MIP    –  Maximum inspiratory pressure

Pmax  – Peak pressure

MRPD – Maximum rate of pressure development

MRR   –  Maximum rate of relaxation

Nasal pressure:

SNIP – sniff  nasal inspiratory pressure

USER ADVANTAGES:

  • Patient can inhale/exhale prior to the manoeuvre with the mouthpiece in their mouth ensuring there is no leakage of air and patient is prepared for test
  • Operator guidance as to when a good  mouth pressure test has been  performed.
    If the minimum exhalation time  (1.5 seconds) has not been achieved  then a stop watch icon is displayed prompting the operator to repeat the test.
  • Fully compliant to ATS standards for mouth pressures.

 

  • PC connectivity for PDF report creation, containing predicted values, patient details, test results, best pressure trace graph and ALL pressure trace graphs
  • Large backlit display
  • Each pressure trace can be viewed for analysis
  • Soft flexible nasal olives for SNIP measurements ensuring patient comfort and ease of use.
