CareFusion’s QDC-Pro Assesses Breathing with cRIP

Published on

CareFusionQDC-Pro

The CareFusion QDC-Pro device uses the calibrated respiratory inductive plethysmography (cRIP) method to closely estimate breathing movements from the thorax and abdominal walls. This approach helps you accurately assess disordered breathing for sleep apnea testing and treatment, according to the company.

The product launched earlier this year and offers more diagnostic channels than CareFusion’s original QDC device.

Available channels are:

  • Calibrated abdominal RIP effort
  • Calibrated thoracic RIP effort
  • Summation channel
  • Nasal pressure
  • Snore signal
  • Body position
  • Actigraphy
  • Audio (db)
