Ventilation with CCSV

 Synchronizing lungs and heart during CPR

CCSV – ventilation that supports cardiac output

With Chest Compression Synchronized Ventilation (CCSV) WEINMANN Emergency has developed a ventilation mode specifically designed for resuscitation. Integrated in the MEDUMAT Standard², CCSV applies a pressure-controlled mechanical breath synchronized with each chest compression. This revolutionary method avoids the disadvantages of conventional ventilation modes while also demonstrably improving gas exchange and hemodynamics.

Confirmed in studies: medical efficacy compared to IPPV ventilation in resuscitation

In studies, the following effects of CCSV ventilation in the context of resuscitation could be compared with IPPV ventilation during resuscitation:

  • CCSV positively supports haemodynamics
    Improved average arterial blood pressure  1.)
  • CCSV optimizes ventilation
    Improved oxygen partial pressure 2.)
    Reduced carbon dioxide partial pressure 
  • CCSV supports the acid/base balance
    Improves pH  3.)
  • CCSV does not cause any damage to the lung
    CCSV causes neither macroscopic nor histological damage  4.)

Ergonomic benefits at a glance:

  • Direct support of chest compressions by the ventilator
  • Can be integrated in best practice resuscitation with no restrictions
  • Compatible with chest compression system
  • Easy to use: no complicated setting of ventilation parameters necessary
