New Ventilator is aimed to address home care needs

Cardinal Health : 04 October, 2007  (New Product)
Cardinal Health has introduced its new Lap Top Ventilator 1150 (LTV), which has been developed to enable caregivers to support patients’ challenging ventilation needs outside a clinical setting.
The LTV 1150 reliably provides ventilation with alarms that are easy to understand for family members who provide care. The ventilator features active controls and alarm settings that are illuminated for easy identification.

Patients receiving ventilatory support on the LTV 1200 in the hospital can easily transfer to the LTV 1150, since the systems share a common interface and settings.

A consistent and intuitive interface simplifies training, saves time and reduces the potential for errors. The system features internal Positive End Expiratory Pressure (PEEP) and Spontaneous Breathing Trial (SBT) while maintaining the light weight and small dimensions of the LTV series.

The new ventilator for the home environment also offers a quick and easy setup. Presets allow the clinician to select the patient type, and the LTV 1150 automatically configures nominal ventilation settings for infant, paediatric or adult patients.

“Physicians, respiratory therapists, and home care providers have made the LTV Series the ventilator of choice for home care patients seeking true portability and a higher quality of life,” said Arie Cohen, Cardinal Health’s senior vice president and general manager of Respiratory Alternate Care. “The LTV ventilator was the first commercially available mechanical ventilator to offer sophisticated respiratory modalities in a laptop-size device. A comprehensive line of patient circuits, accessories and options that meet the needs of both paediatric and adult patients complements this latest innovation.”

At 14.5lbs (6.5kg), the LTV Series ventilators are a fraction of the size of comparably equipped ventilators, offering home care customers greater mobility.
