The In-Check DIAL is a hand held low range inspiratory flow measurement device with a dial top. The DIAL orifices have been designed to accurately simulate the resistance of popular inhaler devices such as MDI's, DPI's, Turbuhaler and Diskus. Misusing an inhaler is becoming increasingly common amongst Asthma sufferers; this often means only a small amount of the medication reaches the patient's lungs. The In-Check Dial helps to identify whether a patient is using their inhaler correctly This enables clinicians to train patients to use more or less inspiratory force to achieve their optimal flow rate with a particular device. This provides the best deposition of medication into the lungs.
The In-Check DIAL is supplied with a sterilizable plastic mouthpiece and an adapter which enables you to use a pediatric mouthpiece if necessary. The transparent body permits a visual inspection before use, and if required, one-way disposable mouthpiece or a bacterial/viral filter can be used to minimize the risk of cross infection. Every In-Check DIAL is individually calibrated to ensure a high degree of accuracy. Inspiratory flows in the range of 15 L/min to 120 L/ min can be measured. The In-Check Dial is accurate to +/- 10% or 10 L/min (whichever is greater). Now health care professionals can quickly help patients achieve optimal delivery from MDIs and DPIs with the In-Check DIAL.
The In-Check DIAL should be cleaned by washing in warm soapy water, rinsed and dried thoroughly.
