The Future Is Now:
Closed Loop Oxygen Control for High Velocity Therapy
Live on January 20th 2021: 1300 - 1400 CET
Vapotherm high velocity therapy has proven to be a safe and effective tool for non-invasive respiratory support of patients in type I & type II respiratory distress. It is comfortable for the patient, easy to set up and titrate for the clinician but still as effective as NIPPV for undifferentiated respiratory distress.
Keeping patients within a pre-determined SpO2 target range has been shown to reduce mortality and morbidity in different patient populations. To accomplish this prescribed targeting is a time consuming challenge for clinicians. The Oxygen Assist Module is designed to target a clinician set SpO2 and increase the time a patient spends in his prescribed target range. This does not only promise clinical benefits for the patient, this also liberates valuable nursing time and may positively impact noise and workflow in the care area.
