Researchers have developed a revolutionary breath-based gas test to support faster patient assessment, triage, and treatment decisions. This will help Innovative hospitals across North America to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and the upsurge of patients in an effective manner.

The medical device uses advanced technology and proven medical methods to measure a patient's degree of respiratory impairment. The new FDA cleared, portable gas exchange monitor, MediPines AGM100®, is effectively helping frontline healthcare workers to quickly triage and make decisions on how to treat COVID-19 patients.

The MediPines AGM100® outputs a unique "breathing gas-based" measurement that can provide immediate respiratory data after the patient breathes into a breathing tube for less than two minutes. Complicated or invasive or procedures are not required. The AGM100 rapidly provides measurements, such as Oxygen Deficit, that help clinicians assess the extent of a patient's respiratory impairment. This has proven to be especially beneficial to healthcare workers trying to prioritize limited resources in the context of COVID-19, enabling high-risk patients to receive the appropriate level of care and attention.

The device uses a disposable breathing circuit with a mouthpiece designed to limit pathogen exposure. These features are highly important to the safety of both patients and frontline healthcare workers in order to prevent the spread of disease.
