Puma is an optional 32 bit software package (which is compatible with all the latest Windows operating systems) for displaying the pressure wave forms developed during testing with the MicroRPM. Additionally the measurements of the Maximal Rate of Pressure Development (MRPD) and Maximal Rate of Relaxation (MRR) can be made.
Puma has a user friendly, modern, multi-window visual interface which can display and store waveforms and results from both mouth and nasal pressure measurements. Patient databases are easily created, a powerful search facility and the long term trending of results are also possible. An animated incentive device ensures maximal co-operation from children and test quality assurance measures encourage correct test technique. In Puma the printout format is also selectable and previous pressure curves can be overlayed. Different sets of predicted normal values are also included.
