What Does Allergy & Immunology Entail?
Allergy and immunology is the field of study about the diagnosis, treatment, or management of allergies, asthma, and immunology disorders. These include the following allergies:
- Conjunctivitis (allergies of the eye).
- Respiratory conditions - sinusitis, asthma, allergic rhinitis, and lung diseases.
- Gastrointestinal disorders - food allergies, gastroenteritis, esophagitis.
- Skin allergies - angioedema, contact dermatitis, acute and chronic urticaria.
- Immunodeficiency disorders.
- Auto-inflammatory syndromes.
Since allergies can occur in nearly any area of the body, it’s important for specialists to be versed in various bodily systems and have the best equipment available for diagnosis.
Essential Equipment for Clinics
MFI Medical carries a variety of top equipment that allergy and immunology specialists need to best treat their patients. This includes spirometers, diagnostic sets, patient monitors, blood pressure monitors, vital signs monitors, and more.
Tables and Diagnostic Equipment
When diagnosing a patient, it’s important that they feel comfortable and communicative with the clinician. MFI offers a variety of comfortable exam tables, some as standalone and other models available with storage compartments. Each table has a comfortable cushion and can be adjustable, depending on the model.
Diagnostic wall sets are another common tool that’s necessary in every clinic and exam room. Allergy and immunology specialists can use otoscope and ophthalmoscopes, and more to peer into the eyes, nose, mouth, and ears of a patient during an exam.
Spirometers are one of the most important tools in the diagnosis of asthma and other lung conditions. These small devices have patients exhale through a tube, which then measures the volume and contents of the breath. Using the data, specialists can uncover if a patient has a lung condition and requires further testing or treatment.
