CareFusion, San Diego, now offers the EnVe™ ventilator, a light-weight critical care ventilator.
Weighing 9.5 pounds, the EnVe ventilator has the capability to manage a range of patients, including noninvasive or mask-ventilated patients to critically ill intubated patients in the intensive care unit. Because the patient can remain on the ventilator when transported, the clinician does not need to disconnect the breathing circuit, helping reduce a patient’s risk for infection.
The EnVe features the ActivCore™ gas delivery system, which includes a hot swappable 4-hour battery for extended patient transport capabilities. The EnVe also incorporates a Spontaneous Breathing Trial (SBT) which provides data to help clinicians making decisions about weaning patients from ventilation. The device also features a pulse oximeter.
