Image-Guided Lung Protection - Visualising the effects of mechanical ventilation with the Evita® V800 and the PulmoVista® 500

Image-Guided Lung Protection

Ask an expert

Advancing treatment with new visualisations

One of the major challenges of caring for ventilated patients in the intensive care unit is to find the appropriate individual ventilation settings for each patient. 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).

What does "image-guided lung protection" mean?

Image-guided lung protection offers the opportunity for personalised ventilation. The combination of the Evita® Infinity® V500 ventilator with the lung function monitor PulmoVista® 500 allows you to visualise possible adverse effects of mechanical ventilation and to find a compromise between alveolar overdistension and collapse. Take a look at how this works.

Mechanical Ventilation

Mechanical ventilation: As non-invasive as possible, as invasive as necessary. As Your Specialist in Acute Care, we know that patients in the intensive care unit (ICU), who are dependent on mechanical ventilation, need the best care from admission to discharge – and beyond.
