Maximum Support for Resuscitation and Induction of Anesthetic
Special Modes for Particular Applications
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation and induction of anesthetic pose particular challenges in a pre-hospital setting. The CPR, RSI, and CCSV modes offer specific support to the user as they perform the individual treatment steps. The devices make the procedure easier for the user because the right function is always available at the right time. The patient can be treated quickly and efficiently as a result.
WEINMANN doesn’t just provide solutions for emergency situations. We also offer special devices for controlled continuous ventilation. In the PRVC + ASB hybrid mode, volume control ventilation is combined with pressure control ventilation to prevent harmful peak pressures even when you have specified the tidal volume.
WEINMANN ventilators feature the following special ventilation modes:
CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation): The CPR mode in the MEDUMAT Standard² and MEDUMAT EasyCPR makes it easier for the user to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation. For the optimum patient outcome, use the CPR mode in combination with the CCSV ventilation mode for resuscitation.
RSI (Rapid Sequence Induction): The RSI mode in the MEDUMAT Standard² is precisely tailored to the requirements of emergency anesthesia and intubation.
CCSV (Chest Compression Synchronized Ventilation): Used for resuscitation, the CCSV mode improves gas exchange and hemodynamics using an innovative method. The CCSV mode is available as an option for the MEDUMAT Standard² and is used in combination with the CPR mode.
PRVC + ASB / + PS (Pressure-Regulated Volume-Controlled Ventilation + Assisted Spontaneous Breathing / Pressure Support): The best in volume and pressure-controlled ventilation – volume-controlled ventilation with pressure control to prevent peak pressures.
Manual mode: Optimized for cardiopulmonary resuscitation, manual mode is a substitute for the bag-valve mask and can likewise be used for anesthesia induction or manual ventilation with MEDUVENT Standard.
CPR: Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
The Mode for Resuscitation
In the CPR mode, you can activate mechanical breaths manually by pressing the button directly on the ventilation mask. This function is unique and is exclusively integrated in the WEINMANN MEDUMAT EasyCPR and MEDUMAT Standard² ventilators.
The mechanism for activating the mechanical breaths – the MEDUtrigger – is positioned directly on the mask. The user can conveniently operate the MEDUtrigger while sealing the mask using the two-handed C grip technique.
RSI: Rapid Sequence Induction
The Mode for Induction of Anesthetic
When it comes to emergency anesthesia and intubation, every treatment step needs to be executed perfectly. The RSI mode makes the right functions available to the user at the right time:
Pre-oxygenation: In Demand mode, the spontaneously breathing patient receives 100% oxygen through the mask.
Tube position monitoring: Mechanical breaths can be activated manually using the MEDUtrigger placed on the mask in order to check the tube position. If the capnography option is activated, it is also possible to check the CO2 level in the exhaled gas.
CCSV: Chest Compression Synchronized Ventilation
The Mode for Resuscitation Ventilation
Integrated in MEDUMAT Standard², the CCSV ventilation mode administers a pressure-controlled mechanical breath in sync with each chest compression: The perfect accompaniment to CPR mode. Find out more about the advantages of CCSV.
PRVC + ASB / PRVC + PS: Pressure Regulated Volume Controlled Ventilation + Assisted Spontaneous Breathing
Pressure-Regulated Volume-Controlled Ventilation + Pressure Support
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure with Pressure Support (invasive ventilation)
The controlled-assisted PRVC + ASB ventilation mode combines the advantages of both pressure control ventilation and volume control ventilation. The set tidal volume is applied with the minimum ventilation pressure possible.
