The world's first Ventilation Autopilot

  • Intelligent ventilation mode for passive and spontaneously breathing adult and pediatric patients
  • Automatically controls ventilator settings based on the targets for ventilation and oxygenation set by the clinician and on physiologic input from the patient
  • Automatically applies lung-protective strategies
  • Provides an automated weaning protocol

A paradigm shift in mechanical ventilation

In conventional ventilation modes, the clinician sets ventilator controls such as tidal volume, respiratory rate, and expiratory and inspiratory time to achieve clinical targets such as a certain level of oxygenation and alveolar ventilation for the patient.

With INTELLiVENT-ASV, the clinician sets targets for PetCO2 and SpO2 for the patient. INTELLiVENT-ASV then automates the ventilator controls to reach these targets while at the same time taking into account the physiologic inputs from the patient (PetCO2, SpO2, lung mechanics, spontaneous breaths). INTELLiVENT-ASV automatically sets controls relevant to oxygenation (PEEP, Oxygen) and ventilation (mandatory rate, inspiratory time, tidal volume, and inspiratory pressure).

INTELLiVENT-ASV automatically employs lung-protective strategies to minimize complications from AutoPEEP and volutrauma/barotrauma. It also prevents apnea, tachypnea, dead space ventilation, and excessively large breaths. Within the rules of this lung-protective strategy, INTELLiVENT-ASV encourages the patient to breathe spontaneously. It provides an automated weaning protocol (Quick Wean).

Because of its unique characteristics, INTELLiVENT-ASV was classified as the best ventilation mode among all existing modes for providing safety and patient comfort, as well as to promote weaning (Mireles-Cabodevila 2013).

What users say about INTELLiVENT-ASV

Dr. Jean-Michel Arnal

Senior Intensivist

Intercommunal Hospital, Var Departement, Toulon, France

INTELLiVENT-ASV is a complex mode with very advanced technology inside, but for the user it is very simple to handle.

Laurent Buscemi

ICU Nurse

Intercommunal Hospital, Var Departement, France

We gain time by using INTELLiVENT-ASV, which we can use to accomplish other important tasks that take place in an ICU, such as taking care of the patients and providing essential medical care.

Scientific evidence on INTELLiVENT-ASV

Since its introduction in 2010, INTELLiVENT-ASV has already been the topic of several studies. In addition, Adaptive Support Ventilation (ASV), one of the core controllers of INTELLiVENT-ASV, has been discussed in over 30 studies.

Studies show that INTELLiVENT-ASV:

  • Is safe (Arnal 2013) and improves oxygenation (Clavieras 2013)
  • Automatically adapts to different lung conditions (Arnal 2013)
  • Requires fewer interactions by clinicians (Beijers 2014)

The bibliography gives an overview of the results of the studies on INTELLiVENT-ASV and of some of the underlying principles.
