Here at Breas Medical we are dedicated to make patient treatment as comfortable as possible.
We know that it has been a desire for many patients to be able to eat and carry on a conversation while being ventilated. That´s why we introduce the new mouthpiece ventilation mode on the Vivo 50 and 60 ventilators, to provide a much desired freedom and comfort.
Scientific literature1,2 describes the use of MPV in the following conditions:
- Neuromuscular disease
- Polio Myelitis
- Duchene Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Advantage of MPV1-5
- Proven to be safe
- Facilitation of speech
- Allows the face to be free from an interface and headgear
- Facilitates eating, drinking and swallowing
- No risk of skin breakdown on the face
- Ability to breath stack as desired
- Less nursing care compared to the care required with a tracheostomy
Why use the Vivo for MPV?
Better patient comfort
The Vivo delivers as good as no flow between the breaths. Flow that leaves
the circuit between the breaths creates a lot of discomfort for the patient.
The Apnoea Alarm can be set to warn the caregiver in case the patient can
not reach the mouthpiece and so can no longer trigger a breath.
Low Pressure Alarm
The low pressure Alarm is redesigned for MPV. So no need to set it at the
lowest possible value. It can really detect a low pressure situation during ventilation.
Information messages make it clear for the user that they are entering
or leaving the MPV mode.
Ease of use
The Breas circuit is easier to mount and replace
