The big impact of lung protective ventilation

How can you improve patient outcomes whilst maximising hospital resources? It is worth paying more attention to customised ventilation. Ensuring gas exchange in the lungs, accelerating the weaning process from mechanical ventilation, treating the underlying causes of disease, and facilitating the patient's recovery. Learn more on why these measures are important and how to implement these.

Image guided lung protection

See how you can fight the threats of ventilator-associated lung injury (VALI) – which often contributes to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) – by making the invisible visible! Our approach of image-guided lung protection reveals previously unseen ventilation needs and assists with personalised ventilation.

Low flow anaesthesia

We understand how perioperative lung protective ventilation during general anaesthesia can reduce the incidence of postoperative pulmonary complications (PPC). PPC are common complications after general anaesthesia. Read on and find out how low-flow anaesthesia can positively influence complication rates.

Lung Recruitment for atelectasis

We understand that most patients who undergo a surgical intervention under general anaesthetic develop atelectasis in the dependent areas of the lung, potentially resulting in postoperative pulmonary complications. Recruitment manoeuvres can resolve atelectasis and thus mitigate the risk of complications. Although recruitment is therefore an important clinical procedure, patients need to be monitored closely to identify adverse effects and to take respective measures.

Paediatric anaesthesia

Lung protective ventilation for paediatric anaesthesia

Most critical incidents and many of the perioperative cardiac arrests in paediatric anaesthesia are related to the respiratory system. Anaesthetists face a special challenge in their job ventilating children, newborns and preemies. The conclusions are far from exhausted, yet we’d like to offer further insight into this topic to help you protect your patients.

Lung protection during bariatric surgery

Obese patients have a higher risk of complications. Get to know why and how you can pay particular attention to the specific needs of their perioperative care. Based on current literature, several methods in ventilation and positioning enable you to downsize the higher risk of complications.
