It is essential to evaluate how well a patient is ventilated. Nocturnal respiratory events have been shown to be frequent in patients undergoing NIV, and can have a negative impact on quality of sleep and potentially on treatment efficacy4-7. Ideally, the ventilator should help in identifying treatment issues and also their causes. Take a close look at Vivo 45!

Polygraph inside

Vivo 45 offers more sophisticated monitoring than any other homecare ventilator, enabling identification of the root causes of poor outcomes and making it possible to fine-tune the treatment very precisely. Vivo 45 has all the interfaces and accessories needed to perform polygraphy tracing. It logs SpO2, FiO2, EtCO2 or PtcCO2, as well as thoracoabdominal effort belt waveforms. In other words, all tools are available to find the optimal settings and synchronize treatment for each patient, resulting in satisfied patients and peace of mind for the physician.

Extensive software package

Vivo 45 connects to a number of powerful analysis tools, wirelessly or via wired communication. The cloud-based program* makes treatment data easily accessible to healthcare providers – wherever they are and whenever they need it. Either via the cloud service or within the hospital network via the PC Software.

Why monitor effort belt signals?

Standard ventilator parameters together with pulse oximetry provide information about the occurrence of many respiratory events. However, this information is often not sufficient to make conclusions about the types of events and their root causes. The waveforms of abdominal and thoracic effort belts can provide crucial information for classifying upper airway events and help in diagnosing patients with complex asynchrony problems during ventilation. With an improved understanding of nocturnal respiratory patterns, proper adjustments can be made to improve sleep quality and treatment outcome.
