|Features and Benefits||● One-way valve: Incorporates a one-way valve to prevent air being drawn back from the monitor.
● Infection control filter: An integrated infection control filter removes and traps >99% if airborne bacteria and 96% of viruses1.
● Patented design with resistance is based on clinical data (2010), which shows blowing slowly and fully represents a more accurate reading.2,3 Also, new D-piece has been redesigned to slow the exhalation process, as data indicates that a slow, deliberate breath sample can increase the accuracy of your results by as much as 30%.1.Public Health England.

3.When measuring breath an acceptable level of back-pressure is required in order to ensure the testing procedure is comfortable to all patients, especially those with respiratory conditions such as asthma or COPD. This back-pressure is measured in millibar (mbar). The American Thoracic Society (ATS) and European Respiratory Society (ERS) recommend the level of back pressure to be between 5-20mbar2. The D-Piece restriction produces between 6 – 13mbar for normal to fast exhalations, therefore falling well within the recommendations set out by these expert bodies.
