Analyzers, Physiologic, Respiratory Function Mechanics
Definition : Physiologic analyzers designed to assess the volume, airflow (i.e., diffusion and distribution of tracking gases), and derived parameters (e.g., airway compliance, resistance) through the respiratory tract from the nose to the lungs. These devices typically include a spirometer, a gas analyzer, and an electronic unit with computerized capabilities and appropriate software. Respiratory function mechanics analyzers are intended for the evaluation of performance of the respiratory system to determine a baseline ventilatory function and respiratory impairments; to screen for and/or diagnose respiratory tract diseases. Dedicated analyzers are available for use with adults (including older children) and for neonatal/pediatric use.
