Atelectasis is a complete or partial collapse of the entire lung or area (lobe) of the lung. It occurs when the tiny air sacs (alveoli) within the lung become deflated or possibly filled with alveolar fluid
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.
However, 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 such as:
How Does BCV Impact These Patients?
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.
Increased Lung Recruitment
BCV works in conjunction with your bodies physiology to naturally fill more of the lung with air
Better Patient Experience
By allowing patients to continue to eat and drink, as well as speak to their loved ones, BCV fosters patient independence, and active involvement with their treatment.
Increased Cardiac Output
A brief period of cuirass NPV increases cardiac output of patients.
