EVALUATING Resmon Pro FULL measurements and sessions, a brief guide with checklist

Using fot results in clinical testing

Integration into clinical practice of Resmon PRO FULL results should be similar to how one would use spirometry: consider patient clinical history, symptoms and results from other diagnostic tests. Oscillometry/FOT can contribute to detect presence of CENTRAL and/or PERIPHERAL obstruction, patient responding or not to therapy and detected abnormalities only present during normal tidal breathing. In case of interpretative doubts, if possible, combine FOT and spirometry with respect to medical response and clinical history.

The numerical results can be viewed at any time, off the Resmon Pro, from the post- testing screen, the “tablet” icon on the upper area of the screen

Resmon Pro Full report & Footnotes

Numerical results in the onscreen and printed session report may appear in red under the following circumstances:

• When measured values fall outside the normal range.
• When the Coefficient of Variation (CoV) for the measurement or session exceeds the recommended range.
• In the event of a PRE-POST session, when changes surpass the expected short-term variability or the thresholds for a significant bronchodilator response

Here is an example where the PRE session displays inspiratory, expiratory, and total resistance values exceeding the upper limit of normality based on the chosen reference equations.
Additionally, there is a significant POST bronchodilator response indicated in RED

The RESMON PRO FULL provide also a series of “footnotes” below the graphics and numerical results, to help the user in evaluating the results.
Some examples:

H Value out of predicted range according to selected prediction equation
R Significative bronchodilator response according to the “Technical Standards for Respiratory Oscillometry”, ERS 2020
S Variation above the positive bronchodilator threshold at 5 Hz defined by the “Technical Standards for Respiratory Oscillometry”, ERS 2020


Review all report pages for RED numbers and the explanatory footnotes as these provide the user with some important info that can be used to aid an interpretation by the physician on the third line of the Resmon report labelled CONCLUSION.

Please refer to the USER MANUAL of your RESMON PRO FULL for a detailed description of all the possible footnotes that may appear.
