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.
Parameters measured (displayed in cmH2O):
MEP – Maximum expiratory pressure
MIP – Maximum inspiratory pressure
Pmax – Peak pressure
MRPD – Maximum rate of pressure development
MRR – Maximum rate of relaxation
SNIP – sniff nasal inspiratory pressure
