The S9 VPAP™ ST-A with intelligent Volume-Assured Pressure Support (iVAPS) offers an intelligent option for noninvasive ventilation for patients.
Evidence from a recent study conducted on patients naive to noninvasive ventilation indicated that when treated with iVAPS, they adhered to therapy for 60 minutes longer (per session) than when treated with standard pressure support (PS) modes.
The iVAPS therapy mode
Targets alveolar ventilation for stable gas exchange in a variety of breathing conditions
Includes a Learn Targets mode to make it easier to set up with minimal respiratory expertise required
Applies intelligent backup rate (iBR) only when needed, maximizing spontaneous breathing while providing a safety net
Includes Vsync leak compensation and TiControl™ to significantly improve patient-ventilator synchrony.
High performance — pressures to 30 cm H2O allow you to treat the full range of NIV patients with a small, portable device
Pediatric clearance — cleared to treat pediatric patients weighing more than 30 lb (>13 kg) and available in a child-friendly design. iVAPS is cleared for patients weighing more than 66 lb (>30kg)
Added security — configurable audio and visual alarms
