Extends the respiratory mechanics analysis capability
OEP System accurately measures the dynamics of the volume variations that occur during breathing in the various sections of the thoracico-abdominal walls (upper, lower and abdominal thoracic area). This data, which is otherwise undetectable, is a useful contribution to the evaluation of patients affected by emphractic pathologies. Also, by combining the volume measurement obtained with OEP System with the measurement of oesophageal and gastric pressure, the dynamics of the respiratory muscles can be studied as force, work and power.
Exams can be performed in any condition
The optoelectronic technology of OEP System does not require any physical connection to the patient, who can be examined in any position, during physical exercise and for an extended period of time. Measurement is direct and is unaffected by changes in environmental conditions.
Noninvasive, also suitable for non-cooperating subjects
OEP System measures breathing even of subjects that cannot actively cooperate (patients in intensive care, children, etc.), does neither require the patient to be isolated nor the use of facemasks or mouthpieces.
Provides an integrated view of all patient parameters
The processing software integrates in a single report the data from other diagnostic instruments (breathometer, pneumotachograph, etc.) to evaluate and compare simultaneously all the patient data of the whole session or at a specific time.
Simple and periodic calibration
OEP System does not require any calibration for the specific patient. The system can be calibrated once at the beginning of the day with a fast and intuitive procedure.
