Better hygiene and lower costs.
During routine tests of pulmonary function, there is a risk of cross-contamination from infectious droplets in the system, since it cannot be adequately disinfected between the testing of two patients.
To eliminate the risk of cross-infection, a bacterial/viral filter can be placed between the patient’s mouth and the device that tests pulmonary function. This filter is used for only one patient and ensures hygienic protection.
The antibacterial spirometry filters from Hengst offer a filtration efficiency of 99.999% and do not falsify the measurement results.
