Main features

BTL-Cardiology_Low_running_costs

Low Running Costs

Reducing running costs in spirometry means reducing the number of disposable items. BTL’s peumotachograph uses reusable sensors and mouthpieces. Instead of printing on expensive thermal paper, it simply saves the report in an electronic form.

BTL-Cardiology_Paediatrics-use

Paediatrics Use

BTL spirometer is well prepared for use with paediatric patients. It features modern 3D encouragement animations, paediatric predictions and calculates parameters such as AEX that are useful particularly when assessing children.

BTL_Cardiology_Professional-diagnostics

Professional Diagnostics

BTL spirometer was designed with respect to ATS/ERS 2005 standard. It performs FVC, SVC and MVV tests, allows choosing desired predictive norm and also provides automatic interpretation from ATS, BTS, Enright and GOLD. Recorded spirometry curves and parameters can always be compared with those from previous examinations.

CardioPoint-logo_basic_registrated_2_ch

BTL CardioPoint®

BTL CardioPoint software is a versatile and complete solution integrating ECG, stress test, Holter, ABPM and spirometry into one unified platform. Its number of possible diagnostic, graphic and network configurations make it a software that adapts to the user rather than the user having to adapt to the software.
