ndd Medical Technologies (ndd), a leading provider of diagnostic technology enabling healthcare professionals the early detection of COPD and other chronic lung diseases, has updated the entire EasyOne® product range, including the EasyOne Air, Easy on-PC, EasyOne Pro, and EasyOne Pro LAB, to be compliant with the ATS/ERS Standardization of Spirometry 2019.
Spirometry is widely used in the assessment of lung function to provide objective information used in the diagnosis of lung disease and monitoring lung health. The updated guidelines aim to improve the quality of the spirometric measurements and improve the patient experience.
Committed to usability since the very first EasyOne spirometer, ndd continues this tradition during the implementation of the spirometry 2019 update. The user interface across the product line has seen a major update to help the user navigate through the changes. This is particularly noticeable in the quality assessment of the measured FEV1 and FVC parameters, and the overall quality grading of a test session. As obtaining high quality result is essential to the accurate interpretation of the spirometry test outcome, each quality-related criterion proposed by the ATS/ERS standard is analyzed. The user is presented with clear messages on which quality criteria have not been fulfilled, and most importantly, how to coach the patient in order to meet the criteria.
The implementation of the ATS/ERS Standardization of Spirometry 2019 update across the entire EasyOne product line is indeed a milestone moment in ndd’s mission of offering reliable, innovative, and easy-to-use products for physicians and patients to combat respiratory disease. However, the journey does not end here, as ndd continues to improve and expand the capabilities of its products and services.
The software update with the ATS/ERS spirometry standard 2019 content can be downloaded free-of-charge for EasyOne Air, Easy on-PC, EasyOne Pro and EasyOne Pro LAB here.
