GuildCare NG Release Update

 GuildCare NG COPD Screening Program updated with AirNext Spirometer

GuildLink has updated GuildCare NG’s chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Screening Program with Bird Healthcare’s respiratory testing and screening device AirNext

The addition of AirNext and its detailed lung function reports [1] will provide pharmacists with the ability to better support their patients living with COPD [2].

The palm-sized AirNext allows users to undertake highly precise on-the-spot lung function assessments. The hand-held device also runs on just two replaceable AA batteries.

AirNext’s software provides detailed instructions on how to perform a lung function test; as well as auto-interpretation and longitudinal lung health monitoring. AirNext Spirometer testing is conducted within ATS / ERS / ISO spirometry guidelines.

To access the resulting AirNext lung function report, pharmacists and users are required to download the accompanying Air MD Professional Spirometry app, by NuvoAir AB – available via the Apple Store and Google Play Store.

[1] AirNext allows pharmacists to measure FEV1, FEV6, FEV1%, FVC, FVC%, FEV1/FVC ratio, PEF FEF and more. It provides 2012-GLI predicted values with LLN and Z-score values to infer lung function severity. Reports include on-screen visualisation of flow volume loops with data analysis along with volume-time visualization.
[2] Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is characterised by air low limitation in the lungs, which can lead to mild or severe shortness of breath that is not fully reversible even with treatment.
