A Challenging Patient: approaches to controlling FiO2 during highly unstable oxygen saturation white paper

Download

Based on general clinical experience and on our controlled trial, we have found Avea-CLiO2 to likely be more effective than the best manual care and to result in a significant reduction in nursing labor.

Eschenbacher Transformation – the solution for elevated FIO2 up to 100% O2

Download

Most CPET-systems use the so called Haldane-transformation for calculating the BxB measurement data.However it’s well known, that at least above 40% FIO2 the values are questionable, above 60% the values are not plausible anymore, and at 100% no values for VO2 can be calculated at all.To solve this problem, Vyntus CPX allows to select alternatively the Eschenbacher-transformation, which delivers plausible VO2-values even at 100% FIO2.

Euro-Respiratory Monograph: Introduction

Download

The first indirectly described spirometer system consisted of a glass bottle without a bottom, which was placed in a tub of water. The centre of gravity was so low that the bottle did not capsize. The neck of the bottle was closed with a tap. The patient expired via a tube, which led through to the underside of the bottle.

Euro-Respiratory Monograph: Preface

Download

Although diagnosis always begins with a careful history and physical examination and a physician is obligated to consider more than the diseased organ, testing of lung function has become standard practice to confirm the diagnosis, evaluate the severity of respiratory impairment, assess the therapy response and follow-up patients with various cardio-respiratory disorders.

HFOV - Setting bias flow white paper

Download

More is not necessarily better, specifically when it comes to bias flow setting. We sometimes forget the importance of bias flow with respect to HFOV.

HFOV Charges and Reimbursement: Practices and Experience

Download

Since its availability in the late 1960's, mechanical ventilation has led to dramatic improvements in treating infants with hyaline membrane disease (HMD). However, in today's economic environment, with each technological step taken, comes the justification of costs against the reimbursement attainable.

How to start a sleep disorder center

Download

Once thought of as a relatively passive process, sleep is now known to be highly active and organized. Researchers have discovered many exciting things about sleep over the last several decades. For example, studies have shown that sleep helps us process new information, allows our bodies to be restored, helps promote peace of mind, and that a restful night of sleep is needed for humans to function properly and remain alert.
