Bedfont’s long-standing UK distributor, Intermedical UK, will be exhibiting their breath analysis medical products at the annual ARTP conference.
Intermedical UK, a bistributor for nearly 10 years, will be exhibiting the 2nd generation NObreath at the annual Association for Respiratory Technology & Physiology (ARTP) conference and can be found at Stand 25.
The NObreath® offers a quick, simple and non-invasive method of measuring FeNO to assess airway inflammation.It aids in the diagnosis and management of asthma.
Interpreting FeNO levels aids in identifying patients who do/do not require on-going treatment1 whilst also differentiating between allergic (eosinophilic) and non-allergic asthma2, and if used daily, FeNO measurements can help to predict exacerbations and attacks3.
The 2nd generation NObreath® has a fresh and aesthetically pleasing design with a full-colour touchscreen. New features of the also include the ability to save patient profiles on the device, Bluetooth connectivity, and SteriTouch® technology for optimum infection control. Furthermore, the NObreath® comes with free patient management software allowing the equipment to synchronise with a PC. This enables reports to be generated, data to be backed up, and much more.
The Acting Managing Director at Intermedical, Livio Gagliardi, said – “We’re excited to bring the NObreath® to ARTP this year. It’s a great opportunity to talk about the benefits of measuring FeNO when monitoring asthma and airway inflammation – especially now it is recommended in the NICE guidance. We believe that the new NObreath® will make FeNO monitoring quicker and easier for healthcare professionals and patients alike.”
This year, ARTP is taking place between 31 January and 1st February in Glasgow.
