emka TECHNOLOGIES will be present at the 17th Fraunhofer Seminar. This workshop for about 120 participants, is organized by Fraunhofer ITEM in cooperation with the German Center for Lung Research (DZL).
We will be happy to discuss new lung volume measurement capabilities for the flexiVent and how translational lung volume measurements (TLC, FRC, RV) add new insights for research in COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, acute lung injury, aging, and other areas of lung research.
The flexiVent is recognized as the gold-standard for the measurements of lung function in laboratory animals. Using the forced oscillation technique (FOT), it permits a detailed study of the lungs via:
- Airway hyper-responsiveness studies (AHR)
- Respiratory mechanics (lung resistance, lung compliance, central vs. peripheral airway effects)
- Lung volumes *new*
