The Satellite3Plus Spirometer (SA-3B Plus): Details
The Satellite spirometer set the standard for physician office efficiency and ease-of-use and opened the doors to vast new testing environments in; hospital ER/bedside, clinical trials, occupational health screening, and pharmaceutical marketing and spirometry screening programs. The new Satellite3 Plus further simplifies spirometry testing, adds additional features such as EMR compatibility and includes the new SmartPrintAPC software, all at the most competitive price available!
As important as spirometry is, if the spirometer you purchase is difficult to use or too time consuming to operate, you and your staff will not maximize its potential. The intuitive operation of the Satellite and maintenance-free design provide simplicity and cost-effectiveness unavailable in other spirometry systems.
Ease of use: Designed to enhance your productivity, the Satellite provides the fastest test speed available and includes a comprehensive interpretation on every report providing you with a more confident diagnosis.
Efficiency: The cordless design of the handheld Satellite allows you to take the spirometer to the patient rather than escorting them from the exam room to a dedicated spirometer; improving patient comfort and office efficiency.
Value: The best price/performance available. The patented Satellite mouthpiece is the least expensive disposable sensor available, saving your office hundreds each year by eliminating filters, tubing, and typical sterilization hassles.
Superior Sensor Design, Environmentally Friendly & Hygienic: An integral part of the Satellite’s measuring system is actually built into the mouthpiece. Also referred to as a disposable sensor, this design minimizes sterilization hassles and the high cost of filters. Each Satellite mouthpiece (disposable sensor) is made from high impact polystyrene. This material minimizes part-to-part variability eliminating the need for calibration codes or bar codes common in other sensors. The rigidity of the material also avoids the collapsing or crushing effect seen in sensors made of softer material, which can result in airflow artifacts at high flow rates. Additionally, our sensor design also eliminates the inherent problems of resistance screens. Furthermore, polystyrene is recyclable….more performance, less pollution!
Confidence: Jones Medical has more spirometry experience than anybody else in the world. In fact our spirometers last longer than most spirometer companies. The accuracy and maintenance-free design of the Satellite will provide confident spirometry testing in your office, today and for years to come.
We can have you and your staff confidently providing spirometry testing in your office this week!
Difference between Satellite3 Plus and Satellite/Base Station3: The Satellite3 Plus does not include the Base Station, but rather includes the SmartPrint APC software program and USB cable allowing you to print full-page reports to any printer connected to your PC. In addition, you can also import spirometry records to patient charts within your EMR.
