What is INTELLiVENT-ASV

Author: Hamilton Medical, Reviewer: NA

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

With INTELLiVENT®-ASV®, the clinician simply sets the patient's gender and height (to calculate ideal body weight), as well as the PetCO2 and SpO2 targets for that patient. The clinician can also select the patient's clinical condition (normal lungs, acute respiratory distress syndrome ARDS, chronic hypercapnia, or brain injury) to determine the appropriate default target ranges for PetCO2 and SpO2. These target ranges can always be manually adjusted based on clinical judgment.

INTELLiVENT-ASV then automatically selects the ventilator settings in order to reach these targets, taking into account the physiologic inputs from the patient (PetCO2, SpO2, lung mechanics, spontaneous breaths). It also manages the transition from passive to spontaneous breathing ventilation and has integrated tools to promote early, automated weaning. Quick Wean progressively decreases pressure support, screens the readiness-to-wean criteria, and provides an operator-configurable weaning protocol. It can also be set to conduct fully controlled spontaneous breathing trials (SBT).
