Benson Medical’s version 8.1 software offers occupational health professionals helpful and enhanced features for hearing conservation, earplug fit testing and spirometry.
For the CCF-200 Fit Test, which is now available as a standalone instrument, version 8.1 provides additional PAR calculations, which will help technicians better interpret earplug fit test results. In addition, the “plus package” can now be purchased for the CCF-200 Fit Test. With this package, users will have access to four new reports, the report builder and the “export on save” feature. They will also be able to track daily calibration records and add company logos to reports.
Particularly useful for companies with multiple testing sites and mobile operations, the new “merge company” feature addresses the issues that arise when users need to combine data stored under multiple company names. This feature is for the CCF-200 Plus Fit Test, the CCA-100mini and CCA-200mini Plus Audiometers and the CCS-200 Plus Spirometer.
Version 8.1 also provides new analytical data on the CCS-200 Plus Spirometer reports including information on the room temperature and pressure and the facility where the test was conducted. New diagnostic codes for each maneuver assist the test technician and medical reviewer in the interpretation of test results.
“Benson Medical continually offers the industry new technology,” says Jim Teter, sales manager. “This new software release is a good example because it provides new capabilities for multiple aspects of occupational health testing, and helps professionals have better control over testing of individuals and their overall occupational health programs. Moreover, many of the new features and reports help occupational health professionals meet Health Canada and OSHA requirements as well as NHCA and NIOSH recommendations."
