  • Publication number: 20220241539
    Abstract: A ventilator system includes a ventilator and a host. The ventilator comprises a ventilation drive configured to drive ventilation gas from a gas source to a patient and a patient interface section configured to guide inspiratory gas along an inspiratory path from the ventilation drive to a patient connection, and guide expiratory gas along an expiratory path from the patient connection out of the ventilator. The patient interface section is configured to releasably connect to the ventilation drive. The ventilator is configured to removably connect to the host such that at least one of the inspiratory path and the expiratory path are diverted through the host when the ventilator is removably connected to the host.

  • Publication number: 20220241527
    Abstract: A ventilator includes a ventilation drive configured to drive ventilation gas from a gas source to a patient and a patient interface section configured to guide inspiratory gas from the ventilation drive to a patient connection, receive expiratory gas from the patient connection, and expel the expiratory gas out of the ventilator. The ventilation drive and patient interface section are configured to removably connect to at least one host comprising a ventilation path portion so as to divert the inspiratory gas through the ventilation path portion of the host when connected thereto.

  • Publication number: 20220241528
    Abstract: A portable ventilator includes a ventilation drive configured to drive ventilation gas from a gas source to a patient, wherein the portable ventilator is configured to removably connect to a host such that when the portable ventilator is connected to the host the ventilation drive drives ventilation gas from a host gas source to the patient and when the portable ventilator is not connected to the host the ventilation drive drives ventilation gas from a portable gas source to the patient.

  • Patent number: 10835177
    Abstract: A method and system for assisting clinicians in determining when and how to perform a lung recruitment procedure. The method includes a user configurable interface that an operator or institution can set up to correspond to best practices. Based upon the information entered into the configurable user interface, a method and algorithm automatically determines when a lung recruitment procedure should be instituted. The system can either manually or automatically enable the beginning of the lung recruitment procedure depending upon the clinician and facility preferences. The algorithm includes a plurality of process steps that are carried out in a clinically-relevant order to eliminate patient condition options and to provide the appropriate recommended actions prior to initiating the lung recruitment procedure.

  • Publication number: 20180211011
    Abstract: A system for assessing a patient in an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) program includes an ERAS tracking module that receives identification of ERAS monitoring parameters for monitoring whether the patient is on track to qualify for the ERAS program, including at least one drug delivery parameter, adequacy of anesthesia parameter, and vital sign. The ERAS tracking module receives ERAS qualification criteria for postoperative qualification for the ERAS program, and determines intraoperative tracking targets for each ERAS monitoring parameter, wherein the intraoperative tracking target is a desired value for the ERAS monitoring parameter during surgery that indicates postoperative qualification for the ERAS program.

  • Publication number: 20080091084
    Abstract: A graphical user interface for use by a clinician in the monitoring of the depth of the anesthesia of a patient. The graphical user interface comprising a drug library with data related to a plurality of anesthetic drugs, a drug administration window for displaying drug administration data, at least one window disposed for the display of a pharmacokinetic graph and a pharmacodynamic graph, and a scale selector comprising a first condition wherein the pharmacokinetic model and the pharmacodynamic models are displayed and a second condition where only the pharmacokinetic model is displayed.
