When ventilating neonatal patients, inspiratory pressure and PEEP are key parameters for managing the patient. However, two factors can impact the pressures that are applied at the patient side of the interface:
The resistance of the NIV interface and leaks can result in uncertainty around the actual pressure delivery to the patient.
Patient lives depend on ventilators to perform at their best. But staying on top of maintenance and repairs may have you struggling to keep up. In this blog, you’ll discover how our Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator service solutions can help.
NIV+ software for the Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator is designed to measure end inspiratory and end expiratory pressures at the patient interface. This provides valuable information to the clinician and may reduce the uncertainty around effective pressure delivery to the patient. It also provides a robust means of determining disconnect, especially when leaks are present. NIV+ software:
Learn how to set up and configure the NIV+ software option.
Learn how your inspiratory and expiratory ventilation pressures may be overestimated compared to actual pressures delivered to the patient at the neonatal NIV interface.
