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. Controlled, high frequency percussive pulses between 60-400 cycles per minute.

3 3. High frequency, percussive pulses and a dense aerosol mist are delivered into the lungs during therapeutic percussion, which serves to reduce the adhesive and cohesive forces of retained airway secretions.

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 TRUE-IPV® therapy sessions using the Phasitron® 5.

Improve FRC TRUE-IPV® Therapy uses the unique ® as a “clutch” mechanism PHASITRON to protect the lung from overpressure. These high frequency percussive pulses delivered by the Phasitron® 5 ramify throughout the airways and alveolar ducts and augment diffusive ventilation in the gas exchange regions of the lung, allowing improved FRC, CO2 removal, airway clearance and lung recruitment.

5 5. An improving alveolus can be a direct result of High Frequency Percussive Ventilation using the Phasitron® 5, a proven, evidence based therapy making it the safest therapy for the most fragile lungs.

TRUE-IPV®, using the PHASITRON ® , can be performed either invasively through an artificial airway or non-invasively by mouthpiece or mask. PHASITRON®


HFPV ventilator. Many choices.

The Percussionaire® VDR®-4 VDR®-4’s versatility delivers sub-tidal, pressure limited, time cycled, flow-interrupted breaths in biphasic (inspiratory and expiratory) oscillations that supports both diffusive and convective flow, while stacking breaths in cumulative sub-tidal volumes, air exchange, airway clearance and lung recruitment for all patient populations and can be used to treat respiratory conditions including hypoxemia, hypercapnia, aspiration, smoke inhalation and ARDS.

Why rescue when you can prevent? Percussionaire® High Frequency Percussive ventilators are not just for critical care rescue. VDR®-4 brings you the safety of the Phasitron® breathing circuit to reduce barotrauma. Restoration of FRC “airway clearance”, and lung recruitment through the gentle persuasion of high frequency pulsatile flow. HFPV may be a viable less invasive alternative to ECMO if introduced early enough.
