PRESS RELEASE : Fluke Biomedical announces the addition of a new test lung to their product line

CARSON CITY, NV - Fluke Biomedical, a division of Fluke Corporation, today announces the signing of a worldwide exclusive agreement with IngMar Medical, Ltd. to distribute and provide annual calibration of the private-labeled portable precision test lung ACCU LUNG™.  The ACCU LUNG is designed to be used in combination with the VT PLUS HF gas flow analyzer for ventilator performance testing as part of a periodic preventive maintenance regimen.

The ACCU LUNG is unique in that it has three parabolic resistance settings (Rp5, Rp10, Rp20) that have been selected to represent the values for test loads specified in the IEC60601-212 ventilator performance standards.  It is also equipped with three compliance settings ((C50, C20, C10), adult and pediatric), and is extremely portable, with the ability to hang from a cart, from the ventilator, or be used as a handheld instrument.

“We are very happy to add the ACCU LUNG to the list of accessories for VT PLUS HF and strongly recommend its use to ensure the performance of ventilators to their manufacturer’s specifications and to document their performance to clinical expectations,” said Jerry Zion, Marketing Manager for Fluke Biomedical.

“In the spectrum of available lung analogs, the ACCU LUNG – VT PLUS HF combination fits a long overdue need for a vent tester that provides biomeds all of the essential compliance and resistance settings along with bona fide portability at a reasonable cost,” said Dr. Stefan Frembgen, IngMar Medical’s president.
