This function allows retrieving PhysioFlow® data from source directory and storing it in the software data base.


Users who want to import data exported by any other users also using PhysioFlow® software 2.x.y can choose the source “New PhysioFlow® Software 2.x.y”, and users of previous generation V10x PhysioFlow® software can choose the source “PhysioFlow® Software v107 (previous generation)”.
