Biorespira:
Pulmonary ventilator
providing an innovative
and versatile NIV approach

Non-invasive ventilation for the COVID‑19 emergency

Doctors around the world agree that assisted lung ventilation is the most effective therapy in patients with COVID‑19 pneumonia, associated with ventilatory impairment. Many types of lung ventilators already exist on the market, but demand is higher than supply, with long lead times, at extremely high prices, and mostly designed for intensive care and intubated patients.

The World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for the management of respiratory failure in COVID‑19 advocate the use of Non-Invasive Ventilation (NIV), provided that appropriate personal protective equipment is worn because the early intubation of a patient with known or suspected COVID‑19 and respiratory distress may be unnecessary, or their mechanical ventilation would have otherwise improved on NIV.*

Features

  • High flow generator with a turbine capable of generating high flows starting from the ambient air, mixed with medical oxygen that can be supplied via an oxygen cylinder or medical gas plant
  • Turbine operation optimizes oxygen consumption allowing the hospital's oxygen system to support more patients connected at the same time (one patient per Biorespira)
  • Use with helmets and non-vented mask with antibaterial/antiviral filter creates an isolated system that prevents the risk of infection caused by the aerosol effect of the gas exhaled by the patient
  • Direct measurement of PEEP pressure and integrated oximeter for a continuous reading of the actual air pressure delivered to the patient and oxygen saturation
  • Allows for a humidifier, to be mounted on the inspiratory line
  • Handle
  • Weight 3 Kg (6.6 lb)
  • Size 291 (W) x 259(H) x 203(D) mm
  • 10'' Display
  • Touchscreen
  • Direct reading of the PEEP and SpO2 parameters
  • 24V - switching power adapter AC/DC (100-240V 50-60Hz)
  • Built-in patient bed coupling
  • Oxygen hook-up through a cylinder or directly from the wall
  • Integrated regulation and mixing of oxygen, adjustable from 21% to 100%
  • High Flow Oxygen Therapy: Flow adjustable from 10 to 120 L/min (5L/min increments)
  • PEEP pressure sensor
  • Works with helmets, face masks and nasal cannulas. Use with helmets, non-vented masks, with PEEP valve and antiviral antibacterial filter creates an isolated system that prevents the risk of infection caused by the aerosol effect of the gases exhaled by the patient.
