Calibration free flow sensor technology
The new standard for pulmonary function testing
Various options available for your SpiroScout:
The SpiroScout is a complete lung function laboratory based on the GANSHORN ultrasonic measurement.It enables the exact determination of all Spirometric parameters.
The SpiroScout is much more than just a spirometer
As the first of its kind the SpiroScout measures flow and gas density simultaneously providing information about volume and gas exchange with one single measurement.
You save time – Always prepared
The SpiroScout requires neither a warm-up period nor calibration. You save a working step, that other systems require. The SpiroScout is calibration free during day-to-day operation – a benefit bringing daily gains.
You save energy. The ScoutSensor switches itself off automatically after the measurement even if the base station is left on.
The ultrasonic measuring principle
Using direct flow measurements based on digital measure techniques, substitute parameters for flow (e.g. differential pressure) are no longer necessary. Flow and gas density are calculated from the ultrasound transit-times. This allows the direct measurement of concentration changes in breathing gas (e.g. CO2) simultaneously to the breathing volume – without the necessity of any additional gas analyser.
Measurements with ultrasound are a safe and stable basis for your diagnostics and more comfort for your patients. In comparison to other equipment there is no perceptible resistance, which can obstruct breathing which is very important for patients with pulmonary limitations.
The direct measurement method and the high resolution of 1,000 measurements per second are the precondition for a reliable determination of all testing parameters with highest precision.
Capnometry, Emphysema diagnostics and determination of anatomical and functional dead spaces, provide important information for a scout diagnosis of lung disorders within a few seconds. The clear statement of these parameters does not depend on the cooperation of the patients. Even small children can be tested quickly and easily.
