Draeger launches VentStar Helix heated hose system for high frequency ventilation
The VentStar Helix heated (N) plus has been specifically developed for high frequency ventilation and for interaction with ventilators that have a high frequency ventilation function.
It uses hoses that only expand slightly so that the ventilation pressure in the system is maintained, and small volumes of breathing gas can pass through the ventilation hose to the patient.
A helical heating wire, which winds around the hose system as a double-helix, is designed to evenly heat the breathing gas from the outside. This means that the inside of the hose is free of heating wires, which allows the breathing gas to flow through the hose into the neonatal patient's airway with low resistance.
