FluxMed GrE is the top-of-the-line version. With its esophageal measuring capabilities it makes complete patient evaluation and assessment possible.
Every patient in the process of weaning should have their esophageal pressure monitored, especially COPD patients. It is a fundamental tool for use in intensive care units, pulmonary laboratories, sleep laboratories, doctor surgeries.
The measurement of esophageal pressure makes it possible to measure the most relevant parameters in the quantification of the effort done by the respiration muscles, in mechanically ventilated patients. A patient’s ineffective respiratory efforts can be detected, and autoPEEP measured.
Is the determinant pressure distension of alveoli and corresponds to the difference in pressure in the airway and pleural pressure. Is used for protective ventilation.
FluxMed GrE respiratory mechanics monitor can be directly connected to an intubated and ventilated patient in assisted or controlled ventilation, enabling a detailed analysis of synchronicity between the patient and the respirator.
Given the proximal location sensor, this reduces measurement errors due to the circuit and the presence of the endotracheal tube.
Non-Invasive Ventilation (VNI)
It is particularly useful for monitoring ventilated patients in a non-invasive way. The flow sensor easily adapts to face masks making it possible to monitor patients with CPAP or BIPAP.
By connecting the flow sensor to a mask, spontaneous-breathing patients can be monitored, thus easily obtaining accurate readings of the patient’s condition, making it possible to objectively choose whether there is a need to intubate and mechanically assist breathing. It allows for a thorough follow-up of the patient.
During the implementation of a plan for weaning the patient may have different conditions such as changes in volumes, respiratory rate, increased inspiratory or expiratory effort: the identification of the cause and its subsequent resolution can determine the success of the test. The GrE monitor recognizes these differences and once extubated the patient can continue providing information whether the sensor is connected to the mask while the ball can be removed or not.
The proximal flow sensor eliminates readings error caused by the distensibility of the respirator’s hoses, thus making the readings more accurate.
FluxMed GrE respiratory mechanics monitor comes with an USB data transfer connector, making it possible to record long lasting examinations with measurements and tendencies in the calculated parameters.
