BCV for Atelectasis
Atelectasis is a condition in which one or more areas of the lungs collapse or don’t inflate properly. If only a small area or a few small areas of lung are affected, there may be no signs or symptoms. If a large area or several large areas of lung are affected, they may not be able to deliver enough oxygen to the blood. This can cause symptoms and complications.
BCV has proven outcomes with helping re-inflate areas of the lung with atelectasis. This is achieved with one or more modes that provides BCV utilizing continuous negative extrathoracic pressure (CNEP), Control Ventilation as well as Secretion Clearance.
