Ndd Medical Technologies will showcase the latest versions of its best-in-class spirometer and portable, all-in-one DLCO (diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide) devices for lung conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma at an upcoming conference in the nation’s capital.

The annual American Thoracic Society (ATS 2017) Conference is May 19-24 in Washington, D.C.

A leader in the field of spirometry, ndd Medical Technologies is offering a range of easy-to-use pulmonary function testing instruments to help clinicians diagnose lung disease with greater precision for optimal treatment.

The company’s EasyOne Connect platform, to be showcased at booth 1521, includes EasyOne Air, a PC-based and portable spirometer, and EasyOne Pro, a portable diffusion capacity (DLCO) assessment, spirometer and full lung volume measurement.

The devices are small, so they can test lung function wherever they’re needed. They measure the lungs’ DLCO, functional residual capacity (FRC), lung clearance index (LCI), and forced volume vital capacity (FVC).

“Our diagnostic solutions ensure providers can accurately diagnose patients early, right at the point of care, vastly improving the quality of life for patients living with lung disease,” Georg Harnoncourt, CEO of ndd Medical Technologies, said in a press release.

“Because all of our devices are powered by one software solution [the EasyOne Connect platform], we can offer seamless integration with electronic medical records,” Harnoncourt added.

The lung function measuring devices employ ndd’s Ultrasonic TrueFlow Measurement technology, which requires no calibration and eliminates problems associated with traditional methods of flow measurement, making testing fast, reliable and error free.

“My clinical research on asthma and COPD happens at the point of care in some of the most remote, resource-limited places in the world,” said William Checkley, MD, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “Because of this, I need highly portable, very durable diagnostic devices reporting consistent and accurate results even under the toughest conditions. I use ndd’s devices because I know no matter the condition, the device will report accurate results.”

ATS 2017 will be held in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. More information about the conference can be found on this link.
