iX5 ClearView™ monitoring screen
The iX5 ventilator has the respiratory monitoring capabilities that clinicians expect when managing critically ill patients. Additionally, the iX5 ClearView™ monitoring screen was designed to provide a clear snapshot of real-time patient data and ventilation status, eliminating the need to be bedside to read key patient parameters or assess how much support the patient is receiving. The screen provides:
- Quick clues on patient weaning status and readiness
- Color-coded lung model to display patient effort
- Minute ventilation bar that clearly defines respiratory patient effort and support requirements
- Remote viewing parameters for quick patient assessment
Alarm management system
In recent studies, alarm management has been recognized as an area of concern related to ventilator-associated events (VAEs). A Joint Commission review showed that out of 23 injuries and death reports associated with mechanical ventilation, 65% were related to the malfunction or misuse of alarms.(1)
The alarm management capability on the iX5 ventilator ranks the severity of alarms, ensuring clinicians receive effective audible alerts, and remain updated and aware of patient status at all times.
High-performance ventilation for the neonatal environment.
The American Academy of Pediatrics and the European Consensus Guidelines on the Management of Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome each recommend the early use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), as it may decrease the need for mechanical ventilation without increasing the chance of complications.
iX5 provides a variety of non invasive modes including the clinically-proven Infant Flow™ technology. (3, 4)
If intubation is needed, the ventilator also offers modern ventilation modes including Volume Guarantee that is widely evidenced as one of the best protective ventilation techniques when ventilating newborns. (5-7)
The Volume Guarantee mode combines both Pressure and Volume ventilations in a unique and interactive mode that follows the patient’s lung evolution. In Volume Guarantee mode, iX5 performs Tidal Volumes starting from 2 mL, to ensure a protective ventilation even for the smallest patient.
The iX5 combines the ultimate non-invasive interfaces and modes with the invasive ventilator modes that allow the customer to have a low capital cost and low cost of ownership. When you combine the non-invasive feature of using the Infant Flow Low Pressure interface or invasive modes, like volume guarantee, this is the ultimate, non-invasive and invasive ventilator for the neonatal intensive care unit.
Infant Flow system has been shown to:
- Decrease the need of intubation by 78% (3)
- 40% less days on respiratory support in patients treated with BiPhasic mode4
- 47% of neonates required less oxygen compared to conventional nCPAP7
