Pneorate / Product


Measuring patients respiratory rates is an important part of the paramedics ability to assess a persons health. The Pneorate is designed to help them measure the respiratory rate of their patients easily, accurately and continuously. One part is a radar patch to scan the patient’s lungs to give an accurate reading of the respiratory rate. The second part is a projector that can be worn on the wrist that displays the readings on the back of the paramedic’s hand. This is to give them an easy way to monitor respiratory rates, while still keeping their hands free to care for the patients.
