- Infections : The endotracheal tube in the windpipe can makes it easier for bacteria to get into the lungs. As the result, the lungs develop an infection, which is called pneumonia. Pneumonia can be treated with the antibiotics.
- Collapsed Lung : This is called a pneumothorax. The mechanical ventilator is pushes air into the lungs. It is possible for a part of the lung to get over expanded which can lead to injure it. Air sacs may leak air into the chest cavity and this can cause the lung to collapse. If this air leak happens, the doctors can place a tube in the chest between the ribs in order to drain out the air leaking from the lung. The tube allows the lung to re-expand and seal the leak. Rarely, collapse of the lung can cause death.
- Lung damage : When the lungs are not functioning well and it is diseased , it is greater risk of injury. The pressure to put air into the lungs with a ventilator can be too hard on the lungs.
- Side Effects of Medications : Sometimes patients may be given medications, called sedatives, to make them more comfortable while the ventilator pushes air in and out of the lungs. These medications is make patients more sleepy and help them to forget unpleasant experiences. The patient may remain in a deep sleep for hours to days, even after the medicine is stopped.
Respironics V200 Philips
For invasive ventilation, the respironics V200 philips has provides instantly recognizable modes, which employs advanced breath delivery algorithms—Auto-Trak, Flow-Trak, and Baby-Trak in order to improve patient-ventilator synchrony.
Respironics V60 Philips
Every breath matters and every breath is different, patients need a ventilator that always follows their breathing pattern, whatever their acuity. The Respironics V60 Philips uses Auto-Trak technology to help ensure the patient synchrony and therapy acceptance. By providing auto-adaptive leak compensation, inspiratory triggering, and expiratory cycling, the auto-trak delivers optimal synchrony in the face of dynamic leak and changing patient demand.
Designed to include pediatric use and equipped with several modes, the V60 allows you to meet the specific needs of individual patients.
The Respironics V60 Philips noninvasive ventilator machine has many advantages:
- High resolution graphics facilitating waveform interpretation.
- AVAPS maintains a target tidal volume in a pressure limited mode.
- PCV can be used when greater control of the patient’s breathing pattern is required.
- PPV (proportional pressure ventilation), it is delivers pressure and flow in proportion to the patient’s effort, enabling the patient to more efficiently adjust their breathing to meet their changing requirements, which may improve the success of noninvasive ventilation.
- CPAP with C-Flex offers three levels of flow-based expiratory pressure relief. It will leads to improved sleep quality and patient comfort, improved treatment acceptance and adding greater flexibility.
- Auto-Trak Plus, is an optional software which available in the S/T, PC, AVAPS, and PPV modes, this is for the subset of patients who may benefit from a customized titration of triggering and cycling criteria. In certain patients with extremely weak efforts or in others with low compliance, Auto-Trak Plus lets clinicians make finely-tuned adjustments to the base Auto-Trak algorithm to achieve patient-ventilator synchrony.
- Standby mode supports patient-clinician interaction without nuisance alarms.
- Data communication capabilities support hospital connectivity.
- Respi-Link, a remote communication tool, allows efficient system diagnostics and upgrades via internet.
- Internal 6-hour battery enables intra-hospital transport.
