These essentially tell the ventilator when the patient's breathing, how much flow they're generating, the tidal volume that they are generating, or what volume is coming back to the ventilator after a machine or patient breath, and several other parameters. This is to lock the ventilator so that it cannot be accidentally adjusted, and so that nothing can be changed.
This depends on the Compliance, and the Resistance of the ventilator circuit, of Sean's trach tube, of his airways, and of his small lungs. On the exhalation side of the ventilator,which on my Non-Heated wired ventilator circuit I have a long aerosol tube that You'd connect to a Large Volume Nebulizer, connected to this side, and I have an extra Humidification chamber that I use as a water trap.
Otherwise, your batteries will completely discharge, and this will become a problem when you have to use the ventilator.
This is another important alert to alert you the caregiver, that the ventilator was recently turned off. This could also be caused by water in the exhalation valve sense line.
This signals that the ventilator has been powered off and I feel this alarm is very very important because in the event that somebody tries to turn off the ventilator the operator needs to know that the vent is off, and not ventilating. So, let's give some settings here, and we'll talk about this carefully.
If anybody does have any questions you can comment and I will answer these questions. Now, usually from the research I've found, you're not going to find this in use with a home vent circuit. God's love is Perfect, and we should cherish that,and give our lives to him, fully devoting ourselves to glorifying him, and to being a witness to others about what He has done, is doing now, and what he will do for us, and will do for them when they accept them into their hearts.
Post a Comment Hello! The other sense line, if obstructed will cause the ventilator to become confused to where It will not know when to stop delivering the breath, and so breaths will be stacked and this is also very very dangerous.
There is also the big batteries which can usually power the ventilator for 8-10 hours and these should also be kept charged, and kept in a dry room. When you do this, if the patient can breathe, they should be disconnected from the circuit and allowed to breathe, but if they have difficulties or cannot, your manual resuscitation bag is there for that reason, and should be used.
This locking function is there for safety. At this point, I've covered several important things in regards to the Pulmonetics LTV ventilator, and I hope that this was helpful.
This is best avoided by just getting them snug on the connections, and thennot cranking them as tight as you can get them. One line being blocked will cause the ventilator to not give the breaths. It is Highly likely that this could be a disconnect, or a leak.
This post is going to be very very long, so be warned. Now, on the side of my ventilator's pole stand, where the basketis that you hold stuff like the Extra charging cables, there's a little grasp that I put my tubing for the exhalation valve in, and It keeps it off the floor, and the exhalation valve is not hanging down to where a lot of water can develop in the tubing.
If you turn the ventilator off, like if your patient is getting off the ventilator for a short period, when you hold down the Standby button, the ventilator once powered off is going to sound a very loud alarm. I'm very thankful.
