Vents_ARCmedical_ThermoFlo-160Avoid having contaminated circuits attached to the patient’s lungs while providing therapeutic humidification with ARC Medical Inc’s ThermoFlo humidification system. Zero endotracheal tube occlusions and zero pneumothoraces have been reported with the device. 800-950-2721;

Vents_BreatheTech_NIOV-200The Breathe Non-Invasive Open Ventilation (NIOV) System from Breathe Technologies is the first and only wearable (1 lb) ventilation system cleared by the FDA for use in patients with respiratory insufficiency and neuromuscular diseases. The NIOV increases tidal volume by providing airway pressure that has been shown to significantly improve ventilation, reduce dyspnea, increase oxygenation, enhance exercise endurance, and unload respiratory muscle activity. The Breathe NIOV System can be used in home or clinical settings. 949-988-7700;

Vents_Impact_Eagle2MRI-140Impact Instrumentation Inc’s Eagle II MRI full-featured ventilator is a portable, critical care device that weighs less than 10 pounds and can be used on infants (5 kg) through adults. The Eagle II MRI offers AC, SIMV, and mask CPAP, volume and pressure-targeted breaths with both invasive and noninvasive ventilation modes. The device features automatic leak compensation to help mitigate mask CPAP leaks, pressure support to minimize the patient’s work of breathing, and automatic apnea backup. The device comes equipped with a battery run time of 10 hours and a 2-hour recharge time, and Unique Smart Help to assist caregivers with alarm mitigation. The Eagle II MRI can be used in MRI suites that operate 3T magnets or less and can be placed 2 meters from the bore opening. Made in the United States. 800-969-0750;

Vents_Percussionaire_Phasitron-160By keeping the lung open to the atmosphere, Percussionaire’s Flow Ventilation protects lungs from pressure-induced injury. Developed by Dr Forrest M. Bird, Percussionaire’s unique open-circuit air acceleration/delivery system, the Phasitron, bathes the alveoli in fresh oxygenated air while gently washing out CO2 and secretions. Flow ventilation reduces exacerbations, pneumonia, invasive ventilation, and time in the ICU and is the foremost remover of mucus and debris. It is known as the “rescue ventilator” for severe ARDS, explosive barotrauma, smoke inhalation, and other critical lung conditions. 208-263-2549 ext 111;
