A Portable Two-Minute Test for Respiratory Impairment Detection
Prepare for COVID-19 Surge
Rapidly Triage and Manage Respiratory Patients
MediPines AGM100 is a portable respiratory monitor designed to provide non-invasive detection of respiratory status and pulmonary gas exchange. The MediPines AGM100 is FDA cleared for use in any qualified healthcare facility and received emergency authorization by Health Canada for COVID-19.
“We are measuring patients in the emergency room. It’s a form of triage, for what kind of care we are going to provide in the emergency room and possibly as an indicator for whether or not these patients have silent hypoxemia and whether or not these patients should be admitted to the hospital or not.”
Ron Pasewald, RRT, Past President of Wisconsin Society for Respiratory Care
“Quite frankly, over 15% of our surgical patients have COPD and many more don’t know they have respiratory issues. That is why we are using the MediPines AGM100® here to fast screen these patients, pre-surgery…”
Leading Academic M.D., Medical Center Director
So, what makes the MediPines Gas Exchange Monitor interesting? Simply put, it’s new. The Gas Exchange Monitor is the first medical device to integrate a “comprehensive set” of respiratory parameters and indicators drawn from a patient’s breath in a noninvasive test. What’s key is the word “noninvasive.”
“The AGM100 is so easy to use and portable. You get the data in minutes, instead of hours so I can separate ‘respiratory’ from ‘non-respiratory’ patients. It also worked seamlessly when I took it to remote rural areas where we did not have access to labs nearby…the next hospital is 160 miles away and the only way to transport patients to a hospital was via helicopter.”
