Introducing the Vivo 50. From hospital to home

BOSTON, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Breas Medical is excited to announce the release of the Vivo*50, a homecare ventilator combining high quality technology, robustness and premium design to provide excellent patient treatment in the United States.  The Vivo 50 has been developed to meet the lifestyle demands of active patients with a focus on autonomy, durability and robustness.

The Vivo 50 offers an extensive range of product features. The eSync technology is our highly responsive triggering technology that synchronizes smoothly with the patient's effort and empowers the clinical staff by providing a mechanism to customize patient treatment.  The combination of the internal battery and click-on battery offers 12 hour autonomy for the patient. Additionally, the Hot Swap function provides the convenience of replacing the click-on battery while the device is running.

The extensive monitoring capabilities of the Vivo 50 provide clinical staff with ample possibilities to define and control the patient's treatment plan. The Vivo 50 is equipped with SpO2 and CO2 monitoring solutions, which reduces the need for additional devices to an absolute minimum. The large full color screen allows the clinical staff to easily read the set parameters, waveforms, numerical data and trends.  One year of treatment data can be downloaded onto a memory card or read and analyzed online by an advanced PC software program.

From Hospital ...

As ventilation typically starts in the hospital, we have made high performance a priority on the Vivo 50.  The Vivo 50 can be operated in volume or pressure controlled modes, with leakage or exhalation valve circuits.  Treatment is further optimized with the capability to program three different profiles.  The Vivo 50 is equipped with multiple built-in alarms as well as the possibility to connect a remote alarm and a nurse call function. Convenient accessories, such as a mounting bracket and trolley, further enable usage of the Vivo 50 in the hospital.

... to Home

Breas brought together high performance features, premium Scandinavian design and a low noise level in the Vivo 50 to create one of the most silent devices on the market. The home-adjust setting is one of the exceptional features that increases patient comfort. It allows the patient to adjust specific parameters within limits set by the physician. Similarly, the ergonomic design of the Vivo 50 takes into consideration the ease of use and technical solutions for improved quality of life. The ergonomic design of the Vivo 50 makes the device easy to handle.

Breas is revolutionizing sleep apnea and home care ventilation treatment by providing innovative and unique solutions for the clinical staff, caregiver and the patient.

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
