When treating a patient, the following accessories are required: Manual set PEEP Bacterial Filter (expiratory limb only) Dual-limb patient circuit Patient Wye HME
The X-VENT uses a configurable pressure threshold to detect a breath from the patient. In order for a patient to trigger a spontaneous breath, the breath attempt must meet 4 conditions: Expiratory time must exceed inspiratory time set point. Expiratory pressure must be within +0.3/-0.1 cmH2O of PEEP setting. The difference between measured inspiratory and expiratory …
The VENT-LS is not currently labeled to treat pediatric patients per the FDA labeling guidelines and regulations. The ventilator is currently labeled with a minimum inspiratory tidal volume of 200 mL.
The VENT-LS can provide BOTH invasive and non-invasive therapy as determined by a qualified physician or respiratory therapist.
The VENT-LS has a pressure safety release setting of 50 cmH2O. The clinician can set the max pressure at 40 cmH2O.
The VENT-LS is designed to handle tidal volumes of up to 1,000mL.
The VENT-LS is a passive exhalation system.
The VENT-LS is a non-recirculating system where the inspiratory and expiratory lines are separate. For inspiration, room air is filtered through a bracket-mounted HEPA air filter. This filter is changed according to instructions provided in the user manual. The expiratory line uses a patient circuit HEPA filter, located at the bulkhead, which needs to be …
