Inspiratory Pressure Valve Assembly for the MicroMedical MicroRPM 01
The MicroMedical MicroRPM 01 Respiratory Pressure Meter is a portable and non-invasive solution for accurately assessing and managing the strength of the respiratory muscles, but as it includes a number of parts, it can be prone to wear and tear. The Inspiratory Pressure Valve Assembly is a spare or replacement part that fits into the RPM to help ensure that the device functions effectively.
How Do I Clean the Pressure Valve Assembly?
The Inspiratory Pressure Valve Assembly can be immersed in a cold sterilising solution. Please rinse thoroughly and leave to dry before re-assembling.
When Should the Inspiratory Valve Assembly Be Used?
This Pressure Valve Assembly is necessary to measure PImax/MIP (maximal inspiratory pressure at the mouth). This is measured at residual volume with empty lungs.
The device calculates the best average from three tests, although please note that a one or two minute recovery period should be taken in between each attempt. This is used as the value of inspiratory muscle strength.
