Why choose ALPE?

Accurate, non-invasive cost-efficient measurement

ALPE essential gives the anaesthesiologist a accruate knowledge about Pulmonary dysfunction expressed as O2-loss and Shunt.


ALPE
essential quantifies the patient’s oxygenation condition using a fast, easy, painless and non-invasive procedure. During the measurement the patient is supine or seated and breathing through a mask or a mouthpiece, whatever most convenient for the patient. A pulse oximeter is also connected to the patient. The oxygen is given at different levels for up to 8 minutes during which time arterial saturation and expiratory oxygen are measured.
 
In 3-5 steps the equipment automatically varies the oxygen content of the inspired air and at each step measurements are taken. In a few seconds parameters describing the gas exchange impairment for the oxygenation problem are calculated on-line and bedside.

Diffusion barriers                                 No ventilation                                Normal: O2–loss = 0

= O2 - loss increased                   = Shunt increased                           Shunt = 0 

Preoperative diagnistic 
For patients with shortness of breath and patients undergoing complicated surgeries e.g. abdominal or thorax surgery.

Postoperative
Plan and monitering differentiated treatment of patients with low oxygenation ability.
