Flexible software package for FeNO tests with the ANALYZER CLD 88 sp or pulmonary function tests with the EXHALYZER® D

The SPIROWARE® 3.x software is an easy to use and flexible tool for performing, analyzing and reporting comprehensive pulmonary diagnostics like the detection of exhaled nitic oxide (FeNO) or various washout tests in combination with the ECO MEDICS EXHALYZER® D or ANALYZER CLD 88 sp instruments. SPIROWARE offers a simple yet efficient graphical user interface for performing the measurement, data evaluation and excellent documentation. The future oriented concept fulfils highest standards of functionality and the recommendations of the ATS/ERS for lung function testing.

The intuitive and flexible graphical user interface supports the management of patient data, the execution of the appropriate lung function tests with the ANALYZER CLD 88 sp or EXHALYZER® D instruments and the generation of final reports. Several functions facilitate an efficient workflow, such as the included search function, which enables quick finding of patient data in the database, or the step-by-step guidance from patient selection to testing and finally to reporting. This avoids user errors and frees time for patients. Comments may be added to each test and displayed in the final test report.

SPIROWARE supports the data evaluation process. Various parameters are calculated from the measured data and results are statistically analyzed. The integrated trend chart provides information about the patients test history and can give guidance for future treatments. For custom analysis at universities or clinical research institutes, raw data can be easily exported.

A large database of reference values is included in SPIROWARE, which can help to interpret measured results correctly.

All data – measured data, calculated data and calibration status is transparently and reliably documented. Report generation has never been easier: Report templates facilitate the fast and simple generation of reports automatically. If required, report templates can be modified to individual needs, or, custom report templates can be generated from scratch. Results can be presented in numerical as well as in graphical form.

SPIROWARE fulfills the ERS and ATS recommendations (1-3), such as quality control mechanisms, graphical display of key parameters and breath-by-breath calculations in multiple breath-measurements.

SPIROWARE supports the HL7 and GDT standards for communication with hospital information systems (HIS) or IT systems in private practices. Exchange of information such as patient data, all numerical and graphical results can be easily transferred to a central server for data collection and storage.

Several built-in quality checks signal the status of the instrument and measurement. Malfunction of the instrument or measurements beyond defined limits are indicated by warning messages.
