Flow measurement is an important part of ventilation treatment. The flow measurement is particularly important during continuous ventilation and CPAP therapy. To ensure that you have everything you need for these procedures, our MEDUMAT Standard² and MEDUMAT Transport ventilators feature this function using a variety of methods. Discover more about the flow measurement function here.
Advantages of Flow Measurement
More precise ventilation monitoring
Pressure support ASB in the CPAP and SIMV modes
Clear monitoring with display of pressure curve and flow curve
Flow measurement with MEDUMAT Transport and MEDUMAT Standard²
Innovative Flow Measurement Technology
For MEDUMAT Standard²
A unique chip technology is being used in MEDUMAT Standard² for the first time to measure expiratory volume. The advantages of this technology are:
Very precise volume measurement
A sturdy design
The low dead space of just 9 ml makes the sensor suitable for both children and adults
With MEDUMAT Transport
It isn’t just MEDUMAT Standard² that features the benefits of flow measurement. MEDUMAT Transport ventilator also has flow measurement as an integral component to monitor the expiratory volume.
Unlike MEDUMAT Standard², MEDUMAT Transport uses the conventional heat wire transmit time method in a BiCheck flow sensor. It is also flexible to use – you can choose between disposable and reusable BiCheck flow sensors.
The BiCheck flow sensor is directly attached to the ventilation hose so it can measure the expiratory volume of the exhaled air. An electrical connecting cable is used to transmit the measurement signals of the BiCheck flow sensor to MEDUMAT Transport. This is how the sensor delivers monitoring data on MVe, Vte, and f.
