Avoid Triggering and Cycling Asynchrony During Mechanical Ventilation
With conventional triggering and cycling systems, 24 percent of patients experience asynchrony in at least 10 percent of breaths.([FOOTNOTE=Thille AW, Rodriguez P, Cabello B, Lellouche F, Brochard L. Patientventilator asynchrony during assisted mechanical ventilation. Int. Care Med. 2006;32:1515–1522.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
IE Sync™ software was developed to address this problem.
With its fine-tuned approach to triggering and cycling, the IE Sync™ software option for the Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator is designed to make every breath count for your patient.
IE Sync™ software can even provide timely triggering and cycling of pressure support and volume support breaths when airflow obstruction and air-trapping are present.([FOOTNOTE=PB980 Triggering Performance Study, Flow triggering vs IE Sync Triggering.

For patients, that may amount to fewer missed breaths and potentially less time on ventilators.7 For clinicians, it may mean avoiding delays in weaning that could impact patient outcomes.
