Features
Recognized Leadership in flow spirometry takes form in the Flowmate III. Fast, accurate testing of pulmonary function is portable and affordable.

FULL FUNCTION. Every one of today's spirometry tests can be performed with your Flowmate III.

EXTENSIVE MEMORY. Flowmate III can store the test results for 5 Patients; an optional Memory Card can hold test results for 118 patients, allowing you to print results at your convenience. Most 8 1/2" X 11" printers are supported.

EXTENDED LIFE. The Flowmate III delivers up to 4.5 hours of continuous portable performance from an overnight battery charge.

CROSS-CONTAMINATION PROTECTION. An inline filter protects the Flowmate III circuit from interpatient contamination.

PORTABLE & COMPACT DESIGN. Battery operated and molded from high impact UL-rated ABS plastic for lightweight design

PREDICTED NORMALS. Composite, Knudson, Crapo (ITS), ECCS, HSU, LAM.

CUSTOMIZATION. Allows user to change report formats, temperature, barometric pressure and printer drivers; lithium battery backup. Back pressure less than 1.5 cmH2O/L/S.

Validation. Complies with ATS, NIOSH and OSHA standards.

Contamination Control. Cross-contamination control via an external filter system.

Worldwide Warranty. Full 24-month warranty of the Flowmate III's components, parts and labor. Additional 3-year Extended Warranty / Trade-in program available.

BTPS calculated automatically - based on user input for environmental conditions.
Temperature 50F to 104F (10C to 40C)
Barometric Pressure 20 to 35 inches of mercury, 500 to 900 millimeters of mercury. Input values determines units automatically.

BEST TEST DETERMINATIONS (pertains to FVC trials only)
FVC Largest regardless of test
FEV1 Largest regardless of test
Ratio Combination of Best FEV1/Best FVC
Flow Rates Taken from the trace with the greatest sum of FVC and FEV1
Patient Effort Requires clinician to evaluate acceptable or unacceptable patient effort. Discards tests the clinician deems as unacceptable.
Variability Compares indices of current test with best test in memory. Displays and prints variability as %. Variability greater than 5% for the FVC and/or the FEV1 is regarded as poor reproducibility.
Expiratory Time If forced expiratory time is less than 6 seconds, a "TEST TOO SHORT" message will be displayed.
Extrapolated Volume If extrapolated volume is greater than 5% of the FVC, a "SLOW START" message will be displayed.
Interpretations Obstruction, Restriction, or Ventilary disorder.

INPUT/OUTPUT COMMUNICATION PORTS
Graphic Output Printouts according to ATS scale specifications.
Printer Results External printer with selectable print drivers within customization. Results printed on standard 8.5" x 11" paper. Standard DB-25 Female IBM PC pin out to standard Centronic connection.

VC - 6 trials each patient
Test Numbering Numbers each patient trial that is acceptable consecutively regardless of the type of test for recall later.

INSTRUMENT CALIBRATION
Syringe Selectable from 1 to 9 liters at ATPS. Daily calibration is recommended on days testing is to be performed. Calibration reports print out automatically if printer is connected and is on-line.
