The big impact of lung protective ventilation

As Your Specialist in Acute Care, we invite you to explore a deeper understanding of how to fit the needs of every patient’s lung ventilation. How can you effectively ventilate neonatal, paediatric, or adult patient's lungs while protecting them at the same time? This continues to pose a major challenge in clinical settings.

Can you improve patient outcomes whilst maximising resources?

It’s 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 why all of that is vital and how to implement in your working surroundings.


Individualised mechanical ventilation therapy

Discover the variability and diversity of our treatment tools along the respiration pathway. They enable the administration of protective mechanical ventilation therapy in your ICU.

Image guided lung protection

With our approach of image-guided lung protection, you can now see the previously unseen – and truly personalise ventilation to ensure lung protective ventilation. This can help void negative effects known as ventilator-associated lung injuries (VALI), which often contribute to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

Ventilation therapy and APRV

The use of Airway Pressure Release Ventilation is increasing and it is not only used as a rescue mode anymore. Over the last years new studies and articles have led to discussing this ventilation mode and its concept again.


EIT pulmonary monitoring

Live non-invasive, regional information on distribution of ventilation. This helps adjust ventilation settings to achieve individually optimised ventilation with regional specific, continuous and dynamic information at the bedside.



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.
