From Japan's leading medical electronics design-manufacturer; the NKV-550 Ventilator System is a state-of-the art mechanical ventilator which can be configured for Adult, Paediatric or Neonatal ventilation. It can deliver Invasive, Non-invasive and High Flow Oxygen Therapy with one circuit – eliminating the need for separate devices. It can be trolley or pendant mounted as required. Cylinder-mounts are fitted as standard and in conjunction with a 2-hour, hot-swappable battery (+internal battery) the NKV-550 can easily be transported around the hospital.
The 550’s Clinical ‘Apps’ provide guided processes that foster efficient, systematic means for clinical staff to optimise the care of their patients. Of these Apps the 550’s ‘In-Line Suction’ tool arguably best evidences the simplicity and utility of the ventilators design – providing additional flow to counter-balance the effect of ETT suctioning and thereby minimise the risk of atelectasis associated with this vital, routine aspect of care.
For complex patients the Lung Recruitability Assessment Tool, PV loops Tool, Recruitment Manoeuvre / PEEP Titration tools, and Transpulmonary Pressure Monitoring facility enable evidence-based and controlled management of Lung Injury.
The NKV-550 also offers Protective Control®, a feature that utilises a second user-interface placed outside the isolation room. Clinical staff can manage alarms and adjust settings before having to don PPE and enter the high-risk area.
