Micro Direct is a health care company that is based out of Lewiston, Maine, and which was first established in 1993. The company\\'s main product line is the spirometer, which is a tool used to diagnose two serious breathing disorders, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, otherwise known as COPD. Micro Direct currently ships its products anywhere in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
When it comes to breathing disorders, early detection is critical. The spirometers made by Micro Direct are sensitive enough to catch both diseases at their earliest stages, allowing for a correct diagnosis and proper treatment. With a Micro Direct spirograph, doctors can have results back in less than five minutes.
If asthma and COPD remain untreated, the results can be deadly. COPD kills one American every four minutes. Asthma is not as deadly, but letting it go undetected and untreated is very costly. Currently, approximately one quarter of all emergency room visits are related to asthma. It is the most common reason that children miss school, and it affects one of every 15 people in the US. Both diseases can be the most effectively handled when they are detected and treated early.
Micro Direct has several different styles of spirometers available, ranging from desktop to portable units. Although each has slightly different features, all spirometers have the same ability to detect asthma and COPD in its early stages and to print the results either on paper or a computer screen for the purpose of further monitoring.
In addition to spirometry, Micro Direct also has Respiratory Pressure Measurement equipment available for purchase by hospitals and clinics. This device is useful for monitoring patients who have already been diagnosed with COPD. It conveniently measures three key factors, Maximum Inspiratory and Expiratory Mouth Pressures (MIP/MEP) along with Sniff Nasal Inspiratory Pressure (SNIP) in one instrument. The unit is very small and portable, and comes with software which analyses the results of the MIP/MEP and SNIP and reports them back to the physician.
An oximeter measures heart pulse rates and blood oxygen saturation levels when the patient inserts his or finger into the reader. It also keeps track of the amount of time needed to get an accurate reading. These units are small and come with an optional device for printing out the results.
Customers who purchase COPD and asthma detection and treatment units from Micro Direct can be assured of the high quality of medical equipment their hospital or clinic will be receiving. Micro Direct holds several certifications and accreditations on their products, all of which can viewed on the company website. In addition to this, Micro Direct is one the largest suppliers of respiratory products to companies performing clinical research trials.
Spirometers, respiratory pressure units and oximeters can be purchased directly from the website of Micro Direct by using the traditional shopping cart method. Micro Direct ships its products to the US, Canada and Mexico by way of UPS ground or UPS 2 Day Service.
