Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT) is a valuable tool for evaluating the respiratory system, representing an important element in analyzing the patient history. Insight into the underlying pathophysiology can often be gained by comparing the results obtained from pulmonary function tests with normative values derived from population studies. The percentage of predicted normal is used to grade the severity of the abnormality. Practicing clinicians must become familiar with pulmonary function testing because it is often used in clinical medicine for evaluating respiratory symptoms such as dyspnea and cough, for stratifying preoperative risk, and for diagnosing common diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases.
The LGD F200 offers an ideal solution for many breath analysis applications where gases such as CO2 need to be analyzed quickly and accurately. The OEM module is extremely easy to integrate and offers a competitive cost-to-performance advantage over commonly used technologies.
