Perma Pure’s Dryers are used in a variety of medical applications to help maintain accurate analysis and protect the sensing mechanism.
Medical professionals are increasingly using patient breath in clinical setting to monitor respiratory conditions. Breath samples need to be conditioned properly to get accurate and timely results. As you may be aware, if patient breath is not conditioned properly, it can lead to dire consequences.
Human breath comes out at 100% Relative Humidity and higher than ambient temperature. Water vapor present in our breath can condense in the sample line resulting in occlusion or worse, damage to sensor equipment.
Perma Pure’s Dryers can be seamlessly integrated with sample lines to condition a patient’s breath. The Dryers remove moisture by equalizing the partial pressure of water vapor inside and outside the tube. And this happens instantaneously. Preventing condensation is crucial to ensure healthcare providers can give the best service.
Perma Pure Dryers may or may not be used in conjunction with water traps. You may be well aware of issues with water trap like constant emptying and causing alarm fatigue. Our Dryers will help solve these problems.
The medical market is moving away from intensive laborious and expensive tests to quick, efficient and cost-effective testing. Several researchers have tested patient breath to diagnose and monitor a variety of issues, including asthma, gastrointestinal issues and cancer. However, moisture in our breath tends to decrease the life of typical filters used in outpatient breath analysis devices. This results in a laborious process of replacing filters at regular intervals, and if not, you run the risk of getting poor quality results
Perma Pure’s Dryer can help solve these challenges. It is highly selective in removing water vapor while preserving analytes. Our drying technology will seamlessly integrate with a gas sample line and remove up to 90% moisture, which helps improve the accuracy of analyses, reduces alarms from water traps, allowing the caregiver to focus on providing best possible care to the patient.
