The Babylog 8000 plus is designed for harmonious ventilation of small children and the smallest pre-term babies. It has an advanced upgrade platform that has allowed it to keep pace with all new forms of treatment and clinical advances. Sensitive synchronisation with gentle but precise support for spontaneous breathing reduces the work of breathing and makes the ventilation process much more comfortable for patients.
The advantages of optimum ventilation
If you use a Babylog 8000 plus, you can rest assured you’re giving the little patient in your care the best possible ventilation. Whatever mode you require
– CPAP, IMV, triggered modes such as SIMV, SIPPV, Pressure Support Ventilation or Volume Guarantee
– the Babylog 8000 plus meets the demands.
The secret of harmonious breathing: milestones in ventilation
For decades there has been a supply of ground-breaking neonatal ventilators. Classic devices that have proved how invaluable they are thousands of times over in locations all around the world. The Babylog 8000 plus is no exception. Its qualities are not confined to functional form, clever design or any other external trappings. The Babylog 8000 plus stands for milestones in neonatal ventilation – inner qualities your little patient will benefit from. The optional Pressure Support and Volume Guarantee functions, for example, bring a new dimension to ventilation therapy and facilitate the process of weaning a baby off the venti lator. Both features contribute to this ventilator’s most valuable asset – its ability to promote harmonious breathing.
The advantages of optimum ventilation: little patients, great demands
If you use a Babylog 8000 plus, you can rest assured you’re giving the little patient in your care the best possible ventilation. Whatever mode you require – CPAP, IMV, triggered modes such as SIMV, SIPPV, Pressure Support Ventilation or Volume Guarantee – the Babylog 8000 plus meets the demands.
SIMV and SIPPV – a new generation
These well known synchronized ventilation modes have been optimized in the Babylog 8000 plus: A unique automatic leakage adaptation ensures sensitive and exact synchronization with the patient’s inspiration – even in the event of changing tube leaks. Work of breathing is minimized and the need to manually adjust a trigger sensitivity has become a thing of the past.
Pressure Support Ventilation – the leak adapted pressure support for neonates
Pressure Support Ventilation (PSV) allows the infant more control over the respiratory pattern with synchronization at the end of inspiration, not just the beginning. It maintains the optimal inspiratory time for a given patient at a given time and automatically adjusts to changes in time constants. The inspiratory hold is eliminated and the chance of active expiration against positive pressure is minimized. PSV allows the infant to breath as needed with pressure support being given throughout the breath. This is important in the prevention of atelectasis. PSV is a time cycled, pressure limited, synchronized mode with each spontaneous breath supported like in SIPPV.
A backup rate is set to maintain adequate support in case of apnea. The selected support pressure enables you to transfer the work of breathing from the ventilator to the patient and thus provide endurance training and shorten weaning time. Inspiration is ended when inspiratory flow declines to 15% of peak flow. A unique automatic leakage adaptation ensures sensitive and exact synchronization with the patient’s inspiration and expiration even in the event of changing tube leaks. Leak adapted pressure support – the pressure support for neonates!
Consistent Volume Guarantee
Pressure-controlled ventilation with continuous flow is now the standard in neonatal ventilation. Over the last few years, however, the measurement of tidal and minute volumes has also become an integral part of ventilation monitoring. Here, the goal is to ensure effective ventilation with a sufficient tidal volume while at the same time avoiding volutrauma. The Volume Guarantee (VG) provided by the Babylog 8000 plus combines the advantages of pressure-controlled ventilation while maintaining consistant tidal volumes. By continuing to ventilate with pressure control in SIMV, SIPPV or PSV modes, the Babylog 8000 plus delivers the tidal volume preset with the VG function.
This prevents overdistention and volutrauma due to surfactant treatment and other sudden changes of compliance or resistance. The peak airway pressure deployed by the ventilator varies between the clinician-set Pinsp and PEEP. During weaning the pressure level is automatically lowered, a variable spontaneous respiratory drive is compensated. The sophisticated software algorithm of the Volume Guarantee function is based on exhaled tidal volumes, therefore compensating for changing tube leakages. VG enhances your therapeutic possibilities and facilitates the weaning process.
Advantageous BabyFlow nasal CPAP
The BabyFlow nasal CPAP system designed for use with Babylog 8000 plus is easy to apply and supplies stable CPAP at low operating costs and minimal noise through the use of standard patient tubing and reusable parts. Its unique prong and mask design and innovative fixation accessories are designed to reduce the trauma associated with the delivery of nasal CPAP.
High Frequency Ventilation
Despite the most sophisticated conventional ventilation strategy, there are a few situations that require a different approach. For such patients the Babylog 8000 plus offers the alternative of High Frequency Ventilation (HFV), which can be switched on at the touch of a button. This mode is fully integrated and can be run under CPAP or in combination with IMV. Even the tiny tidal volumes during HFV can be reliably measured and taken into account to fine-tune your settings. The HFV mode effectively removes CO2, which can be closely monitored using the DCO2 value.
intelligent operating concept: the benefits of ergonomic design
An operating concept that is oriented to your needs as a user and a tailored monitoring system serve to optimize ventilation. This frees you from many onerous tasks usually associated with device operation so you can spend more time concentrating on your little patient.
