High Frequency Percussive Ventilation The Difference You Can Feel!!

Airway Clearance and Lung Rehabilitation 1 1. Compromised alveoli are swollen and filled with mucus and other debris.

2 2. TRUE-IPV™ using the Phasitron delivers fresh oxygen to the constricted alveoli which are recruited by gentle persuasion.

3 3. Flow from the Phasitron promotes the healing process by reducing mucus and swelling.

Lung recruitment with TRUE-IPV™ gently “persuades” distal airways and collapsed alveoli to open over time. This keeps the recruited lung open and functioning while atelectasis, infection, inflammation and injury are healed. 2



4. Healing continues with repeated applications using the Phasitron for Flow Ventilation.

TRUE-IPV™ uses the unique Phasitron® as a “clutch” mechanism to protect the lung from overpressure. Flow Ventilation at high frequencies is the pulmonary flow created by the Phasitron, a unique open-circuit air acceleration/delivery system, which bathes the alveoli in fresh, oxygenated air while gently washing out CO2 and secretions.

5 5. An improving alveolus is a direct result of Flow Ventilation using the Phasitron, a proven, evidence based therapy making it the safest therapy for the most fragile lungs.

TRUE-IPV™, using the Phasitron, is the foremost remover of airway mucus and debris. Unlike external percussion, flow from the Phasitron delivers pulsatile waves that gently dislodge debris and secretions to be carried out by exiting air flow. PHASITRON®


HFPV ventilator. Many choices.

The Percussionaire VDR-4 Suitable for most populations, including NICU, the VDR-4’s versatility provides clinicians with the full range of control of the Phasitron. This allows for improved ABG, by recruiting alveoli and mobilizing secretions. The VDR ventilator is more effective than conventional ventilation for maintaining optimal gas exchange at lower airway pressures in most patients. This unit is paired with the Monitron II, which provides real-time visual waveform, pressures, and alarms.

Why rescue when you can prevent? Percussionaire ventilators are not just for critical care rescue therapy. Flow Ventilation brings you the safety of the Phasitron to reduce barotrauma. Restoration of FRC with airway clearance and lung recruitment through the gentle persuasion of high frequency pulsatile flow.

David J Barillo MD, FACS, FCCM Colonel (Ret.) US Army Reserve

“The VDR is an excellent first-choice for patients with pneumonia or smoke inhalation injury. I have never found anything that facilitates clearance of airway secretions or mucus plugging more effectively.”

Improves outcomes for patients on ECMO Ventilates patients failing other modes of ventilation Restores FRC and may reduce need for ECMO Assists with weaning from ECMO Improves Oxygenation and reduces PaCO2

Bronchotron Transport Ventilator 速

The Bronchotron速 Transport gives clinicians a practical and extremely portable option for high frequency Ventilation in most patient populations. This pneumatic device can operate with a single oxygen cylinder, or from a standard high flow blender. It does not depend on electrical power and has built-in alarms and monitoring display.
