COMPANY PRESENTATION

VISURESP

A new device for :

Respiratory monitoring & Pulmonary rehabilitation using visual feedback.


Measured parameters :

- Rib cage Volume
- Breathing rate
- Abdominal Volume
- Ventilation
- Tidal Volume

This patented system allows long term recording.

Non invasive monitoring

Personalized rehabilitation


PRINCIPLE :

Thoracic and abdominal displacements are measured by a respiratory inductance plethysmograph.


CALIBRATION :

Classical method with a spirometer or flowmeter.

Calibration procedure included in the software.


APPLICATIONS :

Clinical uses Scientific uses

Training in paraplegic and quadriplegic patients who still have the ability to breathe voluntarily.
Can be used to compare volitional versus automatic breathing (e.g. in breathlessness)

Prevention of alveolar collapse (atelectasis)
Compute and save Vt, Ti & Te

Training thoracic wall or diaphragm separately

Monitoring of ventilation during sleep,with a calibration R.I.P. signal

Training for correct use of aerosol therapy

Possible off-line processing to obtain Vt, Ti, Te in different positions during sleep

Training for weaning from mechanical ventilation
