Post-operatively patients are often sent home and then need to be assessed on a regular basis to ensure progressive rehabilitation and recovery to normal everyday life. Controlled and progressive rehabilitation in conjunction with remote monitoring offers unique possibilities while saving costs and improving patient compliance.
Accurate cardiac pulmonary diagnostics and risk stratification are important in determining post- operative risks. The use of breath by breath cardio pulmonary diagnostics accurately determines patients pre-operative risks by highlighting underlying concerns which may result in longer recovery periods for patients post-operatively. LifeMax offers testing technologies and protocols that provide a comprehensive view of each patients individual post-operative risks and how these factors may influence the response to both in-operative and post-operative procedures.
With non-communicable diseases rapidly increasing the need for accurate diagnostic testing has become ever more important for doctors, patients and medical insurers. LifeMax offers the opportunity to integrate cardio pulmonary testing systems into a single platform to streamline operations and the testing of patients, providing simple easy to use and high-quality tests crucial to the ever-growing demands on healthcare providers. Diagnostic accuracy lowers healthcare costs, improves productivity and decreases the risks of complications.
