COPD patients who require NIV have specific needs to ensure optimal ventilation. These patients often have difficulty exhaling air, which can lead to air trapping and hyperinflation. Maintaining synchrony and comfort for these patients is critical in getting them compliant on their therapy.
The VPAP COPD’s custom therapy settings make initial setup of COPD patients quick and easy. The fast Rise Time, high cycle sensitivity and shortened Ti Max all contribute to minimizing hyperinflation and improving synchrony and comfort.
Note: These settings are provided as a guide and starting point for initial settings. Individual patients may require further adjustments based on their own conditions. Existing protocols within your facility should always supersede these baseline recommendations.
Portable and lightweight, ResMed’s therapy system makes it easy to travel.
