A new modular system for respiratory therapy

, : A new modular system for respiratory therapy. Anasthesie, Intensivtherapie, Notfallmedizin 18(4): 212-215

Diversification of respiratory therapy into humidification and secretolysis, oxygen therapy, augmentation of FRC, substitution of the work of breathing and changing inspiratory gas distribution is the basis of a modular device system. The basic unit of the modular system consists of an oxygen-air-mixer, a flow module and an emergency O2-supply for resuscitation bags. The system is preferably attached to the wall rail system and the modules locked into each other. The main advantages are: Reduction in the number of devices around the patient's bed, comprehensive setup; reduction of required storage capacity; cost reduction; easy integration at low cost of new therapeutical procedures; quick and easy change of therapy whilst maintaining basic parameters constant.
