Philips Respironics is releasing a new portable ventilator for adult and pediatric patients above five kilos. The Trilogy200 provides up to six hours of life support on one set of batteries which can be hot swapped for indefinite use.
From a press release obtained by Medgadget:
Using a new single-limb circuit and proximal flow sensor, Trilogy200 offers improved triggering and leak compensation that allows for more sensitive delivery of therapy. This added sensitivity decreases work of breathing resulting in greater therapy comfort, better ventilation and improved patient/ventilator synchrony.1/2 Weighing only 11 pounds and featuring a unique six-hour battery system of internal and easy-to-swap detachable batteries, Trilogy200 gives patients and their families a new level of freedom.
"Trilogy200’s advanced flow triggering is ideal for patients who require enhanced inspiratory triggering and leak compensation," says John Frank, senior vice president and general manager, Respiratory Care Group. "With three triggering options-Digital Auto-Trak, flow triggering and proximal flow triggering-clinicians can select the most appropriate ventilator settings for their patients."
Additionally, Trilogy200 has DirectView reporting software, which streamlines reporting to help clinicians identify adjustments necessary to maintain effective treatment and improve patient care.
