Pulmonary Function Testing

The Compact™ Medical Workstation forms the foundation of our PFT solutions and is a validated medical device for clinic use, with a user friendly interface and integral spirometer. The device hosts questionnaires and centralizes data from a range of pulmonary function tests and other medical assessments.

Compact Expert captures spirometry endpoints using Vitalograph’s validated, highly accurate and reliable Fleisch flowhead technology. The device hosts eCOA and centralizes endpoints such as FeNO, ECG, DLCO, MIP, MEP, SNIP, PCR, IFR, NIBP, 6 Minute Walk Test, Sponsor questionnaires and In2itive™ e-Diary.

Compact Expert runs Vitalograph Spirotrac® software adapted to meet specific protocol requirements. Spirotrac software supports automated quality feedback and streamlines protocol driven workflows. Data is saved to the device and once transmitted, viewable via Vitalograph Web Portal.

  • High-resolution touch screen.
  • Centralized subject and endpoint management.
  • Secure, encrypted data transmission direct to Vitalograph data servers via WiFi or wired connection.
  • Over-Read 360® provides expert analyst review and reconciled feedback for better quality data.
  • Software adapted to the needs of each study.
