Pulmo-Protect™ filter

Pulmo-Protect™ combines low resistance with a high bacterial and viral efficiency filter designed specifically to protect the patient and equipment during lung function tests. During these tests patients may generate peak flows as high as 12 L/sec (720 LPM) and expel infective droplets, which could contaminate the pulmonary function test equipment.  As a result, cross infection between patients is a real risk1.

Pulmo-Protect™ provides:
  • Protection of pulmonary function test equipment.
  • High filtration properties reduce the risk of contamination between patients.
  • Low resistance performance ensures efficacy of results and complies with ATS/ERS recommendations2
  • Low functional volume.
  • Microbiological filtration effectiveness has been independently tested and validated to provide >99.999%efficiency against bacteria and viruses3.
  • Flexible, comfortable, disposable mouth piece helps with patient compliance and improve the effectiveness of the test
  • Comfortable single patient nose clip prevents patient-to-patient touch contamination.
  • Device compatible range of color-coded filters available individually or as a complete pulmonary function test kit.
