Individual Metabolic Assessment Q-NRG uses the Gold Standard Indirect Calorimetry technique to measure metabolic parameters. The technique itself guarantees that the results reflect the metabolic alterations during illness and repeated measurements may correspond with disease progression or resolution4. QNRG is the ultimate tool to develop individual nutrition support plans and optimize them to prevent over/underfeeding, to reduce length of stay and, ultimately, to decrease costs in ICU.
Indirect Calorimetry, a Gold Standard Q-NRG is the result of more than 30 years of experience in the design of metabolic systems. The new calorimeter has been validated in-vitro by international multicentre study showing the greatest accuracy with excellent agreement vs. mass spectrometer measurements5,6.
Quick to operate, clean and maintain Q-NRG has been designed to reduce operations and measurement time. System does not require warm-up time nor user-assisted calibrations, all operations can be performed with a few taps on the screen and cleaning procedures are simplified thanks to rounded surfaces and single-use accessories.
Designed for Clinical Practice Q-NRG usability has been designed according to best clinical practice. An intuitive workflow supports the user through all operations with main instructions prompted along the procedures and test information always accessible. Designed to be portable, the device can be easily transported between rooms.
Latest Technologies in a Compact Device Q-NRG is a compact, lightweight, battery operating device. The 10” inches LCD touchscreen simplify access to all operations. Bluetooth, USB, RS-232 and LAN interfaces allow to connect the system to any hub (PC, printers, etc.).
Affordable Q-NRG has been designed to compete with conventional metabolic system, at a fraction of the cost.
One tool for many applications. Q-NRG provides all the flexibility for a variety of clinical settings, assessing different patient's conditions (mechanically ventilated or spontaneously breathing) and with different techniques (Canopy Hood and/or face masks), from adults to pediatric starting from 10 kg.
Standalone or PC based user mode. Q-NRG can be operated either via the integrated LCD touchscreen or controlled from a computer via OMNIA PC software (optional), with data transfer done wireless through Bluetooth® or USB interfaces.
