Buying the right kind and best model of ventilator for your particular application is critical; here are five basic types to consider
These are just a few of the many good reasons to consider purchasing a ventilator. Oxygen is the most important drug we give, but only with a ventilator can you be in complete control of the dose. Buying the right kind and best model for your particular application is critical.
Here are five basic types to consider:
1. Resuscitators. Resuscitators offer basic ventilation support during CPR and respiratory arrest. Most are fully pneumatic and oxygen powered. They provide controlled ventilation in emergency situations. They are primarily intended for use with a face mask or rescue airway. They grant the rescuer effective control over tidal volume and respiratory rate, delivered at controlled inspiratory pressures. Our Jiuxin Emergency&Transport ventilators can totally meet the needs.
2. EMS ventilators. Jiuxin EMS/transport ventilators offer time-cycled, volume constant operation. They are built for the rigors of pre-hospital care. They are typically intuitive and fast to deploy. They have intuitive tidal volume and rate controls. They can accommodate the basic needs of ventilator-dependent transport patients and are suitable for emergency ventilation. Some now also include a CPAP function which expands versatility.
3. Critical care transport ventilators. Jiuxin Critical care/transport ventilators are designed to duplicate the advanced functions of acute care ventilators. Most can deliver CPAP and/or BiPAP, and are suitable for EMS and ICU patients during transportation between hospitals. The big difference between CCT ventilators and hospital transport ventilators is that CCT units are intended for use in mobile medical transport applications. Many are certified for aeromedical use, and most have included EMS applications specifically in their FDA 510K submission.
4. Hospital transport ventilators. Hospital transport ventilators are mainly designed for patient transportation inside the hospital. They are suitable for ICU/critical care patients and for specialized applications outside the hospital. Our Jiuxin Hospital transport ventilators are very suitable.
5. Disaster ventilators. Disaster ventilators are mainly used for mass casualty applications. They are generally inexpensive and compactly stored. They are intended for long-term disaster caches and/or surge capacity. They also have applications in the military theater. Some offer a built-in compressor and others are battery- or gas-powered. They can replace hospital ventilators after compressed oxygen has run out or during a long power outage.
