A new medical device for tests of people with respiratory problems not covered by medical insurance

We introduce a new medical device for tests of people with respiratory problems not covered by medical insurance.

A recognized new technology – What is exhaled nitric oxide (NO) test?

Simple examination of the degree of airway inflammation

The simple device examines the degree of inflammation in the airway by measuring the concentration of nitric oxide produced in the epithelial cell of respiratory organs and bronchial tubes.

Clinical significance

It can be used helpfully for diagnosing and monitoring eosinophilic airway inflammation.
(39,000 ~ 60,000 won not covered by insurance, to be registered at Health Insurance Review & Assessment Service)

It is possible to manage the results of treatment by immediate examination of the degree of inflammation.

You need to prepare for airway inflammation test now.

What are the benefits given to the doctors who operate clinics through this test?

1. The profit structure of the clinic improves within 3 months.
2. It is very useful for monitoring of patients.
3. The purchase price is not a cost but an investment for creation of profit.
4. Your clinic will have competitiveness over other nearby clinics.
5. It is possible to achieve profit and tax reduction at the same time.
6. The treatment of the clinic will improve, and the satisfaction level of patients will rise much.
7. Few patients will be sent to another clinic due to lack of examination equipment.

This medical device produced with a new technology will give you a new source of sales and profit in operation of the clinic.

Official announcement of the Ministry of Health & Welfare (Announcement No. 2013-108) recognizing the safety and effectiveness of the new medical technology

If 1.5 persons take the test, it will generate 2.16 million won a month.

One test kit is worth 15,000 won

Additional 10 test kits will be given.

Free test kits will be given to 10 persons. (at the time of purchase of the equipment)

Convenient test

It is possible to know the degree of airway inflammation shortly.

The nitric oxide in exhaled gas is measured for 10 seconds with outbreathing.
Even a child can do it easily.

Ear suction tip is not offered.
Use #15.

Normal

Child: 5 - 20 ppb
Adult: 5 - 25 ppb

Dangerous

Child: 20 - 35 ppb
Adult: 25 - 50 ppb

Severe

Child: over 35 ppb
Adult: over 55 ppb

The numerical value of exhaled nitric oxide increases in the asthma and airway infection with eosinophilic airway inflammation. NObreath is useful for diagnosing atopic asthma and the asthma caused by increase of eosinophilic inflammation.

Additional 10 test kits are given to only 10 customers who purchase the product.

*If purchased individually, the product is 15,000 won per piece, and one piece is used for one-time test.

Expert’s opinion

According to an expert, a member of the New Medical Device Evaluation Committee, the test is easier to do and less burdensome for patients than the use of induced sputum which was done before for grasping the degree of airway inflammation. Especially, it can be used helpfully for child patients. In comparison to transbronchial biopsy or bronchoalveolar lavage that are invasive tests, this test is done noninvasively and thus it seems to be more convenient than the existing test methods.

Contents of the announcement of the new medical device

The results of the evaluation of the safety and effectiveness of the new medical technology according to Paragraph 3 of Article 53 of Medical Service Act and Article 4 of the Rules on Evaluation of New Medical Technology were announced as follows after revision as Announcement No. 2013-108 of the Ministry of Health and Welfare (dated on July 5, 2013).
Title of technology
In Korean: 호기 산화질소 측정
In English: Fractional Exhaled Nitric Oxide

Test method

The air is inhaled after removal of nitric oxide (NO) through the NO scrubber embedded in the device. The speed of the exhaled breath is adjusted by looking at the screen of the device or through the animation installed in the computer to determine the quantity of NO from the exhaled breath of the patient.

Results of evaluation of safety and effectiveness
Measurement of NO in exhaled breath is done in a noninvasive way to grasp the degree of inflammation in the airway. It is a safe test as it does not give direct harm to the patient during the test.

Measurement of exhaled nitric oxide showed a significant correlation with the existing test. It is an effective test with noninvasive convenience. Thus, testing exhaled nitric oxide is a safe and effective test which can be used for grasping the degree of eosinophilic airway inflammation in a noninvasive way for asthma patients.

Conclusion

The test is easier to do and less burdensome for patients than the use of induced sputum which was done before for grasping the degree of airway inflammation. Especially, it can be used helpfully for child patients. In comparison to transbronchial biopsy or bronchoalveolar lavage that are invasive tests, this test is done noninvasively and thus it seems to be more convenient than the existing test methods.

Special benefit of the event for purchasing customers

Free 10 test kits are given to only 10 customers who purchase NObreath.
*If purchased individually, the product is 15,000 won per piece, and one piece is used for one-time test.
