It all starts with the right positive end-expiratory pressure. Numerous studies have documented the need for individual PEEP settings to avoid alveolar complications and improve oxygenation. However, in practical terms, the determination of the optimal end-expiratory pressure is usually complex, involved and frequently even associated with complications. With PEEPfinder™, the determination of the lower inflection
point is as easy as setting the respiratory rate. Thanks to its state-of-the-art sensors and high-resolution sampling rate, elisa 800 intensive care respirator contains the necessary algorithms for the reliable determination of the lower inflection point, and accordingly, the necessary PEEP. The simple display allows for the verifiable review of measurement values and PEEP settings that are not subject to interpretation.
