Software, Physiologic Analysis, Respiratory Function Mechanics
Definition : Physiologic analysis software designed to operate computerized respiratory function mechanics (i.e., assess the volume and air flow, the devices are also known as pulmonary function analyzers), control/monitor a limited number of the tester functions, and/or process data obtained while testing. This software is intended to work with one or a few models of pulmonary function analyzers, usually from the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while assessing pulmonary function data (e.g., diffusion and distribution of tracking gases, airway compliance and resistance), and/or while processing and or receiving information from hospital information systems. Respiratory function mechanics software is not usually available separate from the analyzer but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the analyzer. Dedicated respiratory function mechanics analyzer software intended for assessment of adults, children, and neonates is also available
