July 17, 2014 | Grand Rapids, MI – Michigan Instruments, Inc. (MII) announces the release of a new, sophisticated design modification to its’ Training and Test Lung. The new design includes PneuView3, an innovative, intuitive software interface. The combination of the new software application and improved product design brings significantly improved user capabilities which further position Michigan Instruments as an innovative leader in the respiratory care industry.
Developed 40 years ago, the Michigan Lung embodies a mechanical “respiratory simulation” of the human pulmonary system capable of measuring airway pressure, lung pressure, tidal volume and dozens of other parameters. It is the most versatile, reliable lung on the market and its’ latest comprehensive, fully-to-scale mechanical design allows for simulation of hundreds of patient scenarios. The system is comprised of a precisely engineered mechanical test lung (or lungs), a set of electronic sensors, a signal conditioning package, and an integrated micro control unit. The PneuView3 software application calculates and displays, in real time, numerous respiratory parameters and waveforms. This data can also be exported for later review.
Joe Baldwin, President of Michigan Instruments states, “Most test lungs on the market are built to perform a handful of simulations and are not fully to scale (parameters are adjusted according to a scale model). The Michigan Lung and PneuView3 System will provide users with a more comprehensive simulation to improve their respiratory products, care and treatments.”
MII has designed and manufactured specialized medical equipment related to the fields of cardiovascular medicine, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and respiratory therapy for over forty years.
