Wean the patient quickly and safely

Don’t miss a chance to achieve ventilation weaning progress

As Your Specialist in Acute Care we understand that mechanical ventilation should only take as long as necessary. Otherwise the risk of complications and lung damage increases as well as the ICU length of stay. The crucial factors for successful weaning and extubation are an interdisciplinary strategy and an accurate assessment of the patient.

Wean the patient successfully as third step of the Respiration Pathway

Wean-Pathway-3-2.JPG

Wean the patient quick and safe because ...

  • the incidence of acute lung injuries (ALI) or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) could delay the induction of weaning
  • the delayed induction of ventilation weaning may lead to weaning failure
  • paying attention to early detection of risk factors may contribute to successful weaning and shorten ICU length of stay

The six phases of the weaning process

There are a series of stages in the process of care, from intubation and initiation of mechanical ventilation through initiation of the weaning effort to the ultimate liberation from mechanical ventilation and successful extubation.

Gentle ventilation with variable pressure support

Making random ventilation changes to imitate the “noise” is an innovative way to improve outcome. Visit our topics page to learn more about Variable Pressure Support.

Allow the patient to take control of ventilation.

Proportional Pressure Support (PPS) applies patient-triggered pressure support in proportion to the patient’s inspiratory effort.

Early Mobilization

Traditionally, every patient admitted to an ICU is immediately put on enforced bed rest. Research now shows that bed rest can have adverse effects on muscles and organs, which can impair neuropsychological functions and reduce movement capacity.

Our set of treatment tools to protect the lung

Stabilizing a patient’s breathing means to be well informed about the state of the lung at all times. Let us assist you with a set of proven tools. 

VC-MMV-Autoflow-Screenshot-3-2.jpg

VC-MMV with AutoFlow (Volume Controlled - Mandatory Minute Volume) to support the transition from controlled to assisted spontaneous breathing with a minimum minute ventilation.

PC-BIPAP-3-2.JPG

PC-BIPAP to enable the patient to breathe spontaneously at any time during pressure controlled ventilation.

Automatic-Tube-Compensation-3-2.jpg

ATC - Automatic Tube Compensation to reduce tube related work of breathing to ease spontaneaous breathing.

P0.1-measurement-RSBi-NIF-3-2.jpg

P0.1-measurement,RSBI, NIF to help to asses and quantify the patients ability to breathe spontaneously.

Draeger-SPN-CPAP NIV-Respiratory-Pathway-3-2.jpg

SPN-CPAP-VS to support the spontaneous breathing with guaranteed tidal volume. 

Draeger-SPN-PPS-Tube-ATC-Spont-Breath-II-Respiratory-Pathway-3-2.jpg

SPN-PPS to unload the patient individually for elastic or resistive work of breathing and to avoid asynchrony with proportional assisted ventilation.

SPN-CPAP-ATC-Variable-PS-3-2.JPG

Variable Pressure Support to increase the variability of delivered tidal volume which will lead to improved oxygenation

Comprehensive-Monitoring-Functions-3-2.jpg

Comprehensive monitoring functions like loops, trends logbooks to enable the retrospective analysis of all patient data.

Draeger-Smart-Pulmonary-View-III-Respiratory_Pathway-3-2.jpg

Smart Pulmonary View to perform real time visualization and turn data into information for a potentially quicker analysis of lung dynamic parameters.
