This advanced device ensures high result accuracy and individual patient safety using bacterial viral filters

Cipla has announced the launch of Spirofy®, pneumotach based portable, wireless Spirometer, on World COPD Day. With this launch, the company intends to revolutionise Obstructive Airway Disease (OAD) diagnosis.

Cipla’s Spirofy® aims to transform Obstructive Airway Disease (OAD) diagnosis in India. This advanced device ensures high result accuracy and individual patient safety using Bacterial Viral Filters. Spirofy® is entirely wireless with good battery backup, making it suitable for use in outdoor camps, remote areas with power shortages, or simply providing physicians’ flexibility and ease of use. The device generates reports in real-time, which can be printed using a portable wireless thermal printer instantly, or a pdf version can be shared on the phone. Cipla will undertake training of physicians in the interpretation of spirometry results.

Spirometry is the gold standard for COPD diagnosis, however owing to the bulky size, complex functionality, need for regular maintenance are some reasons that impacted the widespread acceptance of conventional spirometers by medical practitioners. This resulted in underdiagnosis or misdiagnosis of COPD cases in India. Currently, COPD remains the 2nd most common cause of death2 in India after heart diseases, where India alone bears 32% of the global COPD burden.

Commenting on the launch, Umang Vohra, MD and Global CEO, Cipla said, “Cipla has been steadfastly focused on addressing the world’s growing respiratory disease burden, and with this launch, we see ourselves steadily advancing to combat chronic respiratory ailments like COPD. The Spirofy® launch aims to help doctors across the country to improve lives of patients through accurate and affordable diagnosis.”
