Dual Screen System Allows for Safe, Complete Stress Test Monitoring


June 29, 2006

The Dual Screen Vmax Encore allows for safe and complete monitoring of a stress test.

VIASYS has combined the GE Marquette 12-lead ECG software with an exercise metabolic cart. This system provides the ability to measure oxygen uptake, carbon dioxide production, respiratory rate, ventilation and many other parameters while watching the 12-lead ECG monitoring system. It also differentiates between muscular, respiratory and cardiovascular disease with gas exchange features. CPT codes are available for the reimbursement of these extra diagnostic parameters.
