Saving Money on a Otoscope from Welch Allyn

Providing Your Patients with a Pulmonary Function Test

As a physician, part of your job is to be able to provide your patients with a range of testing services to help diagnose and treat the different illnesses they are going to come to you with. One such illness that has been on the increase for many years is asthma. To properly diagnose this illness and treat it you will need the equipment necessary to perform a pulmonary function test.

If you are going to perform a pulmonary function test, you are going to need a spirometer such as those available at the Medical Device Depot. You can use this device to make a preliminary diagnosis and then continue to use it to monitor their condition on an ongoing basis. Once you have added a spirometer to your office you will have instant access to the information you need to adjust your treatment recommendations or send your patients for further testing.

Finding the Right Pulse Oximeter

What you are likely to find difficult is finding a quality meter that is neither too cheap to be on any good, or so expensive as to waste your money. A good pulse oximeter does not need to have a lot of fancy features on it; it need only read the level of oxygen in your blood accurately. Other than that the only other feature it needs to have is an easy to read display.

Pulse Oximetry and the Dentist

While the use of pulse oximetry equipment has been traditionally thought of as a part of just the medical community, this is no longer the case. Modern dental schools are teaching new dentist that any time they are performing dental work that involves the use of sedatives and a loss of blood during the work, the patient's blood oxygen saturation rate should be monitored.

Many established dentists are still not doing this for one or more reasons. The main one is that they still believe pulse oximetry equipment is too expensive for their budget to be able to cover the cost. While this might have been the case in years gone past, this is no longer a good reason not to offer your patients and superior level of care. At the Medical Device Depot you will find a selection of very affordable pulse oximeters for use in both medical and dental practices.
