Boussignac CPAP kit with nebulizer

Code produit: 5577.013

Respiratory assistance device for patients with spontaneous ventilation allowing maintenance in the airways of a pressure greater than atmospheric pressure during the entire respiratory cycle. 

The CPAP mode of ventilation allows:
  • to recruit collapsed alveoli,
  • to restore a satisfactory level of functional residual capacity,
  • to improve gas exchange at the level of the alveolocapillary membrane,
  • to decrease pulmonary resistance,
  • to decrease the work of breathing,
  • to redistribute the alveolar liquid to the interstitial space in case of acute pulmonary oedema.

The Boussignac CPAP and its manometer connector is a device for connection to a face mask with its 22 mm male connector, the crenellated upper part remaining open to the air.

This device comprises 2 lateral ports: 
  • the upper port is preconnected to an extension tube (length 200 cm) for connection to an air or oxygen source,
  • the bottom port (colourless translucent) allows:
. controlling pressure (use manometer code 527.01), 
. an additional oxygen supply if the gas administered to the patient via the upper port is air.

How it works: 
The gases administered to the patient (air, air-oxygen mixture or pure oxygen) pass through the extension tube and arrive in a circular chamber where the gases can only escape into the central zone passing through 4 micro-channels. At that moment, the injection speed of the gases is greatly increased. Deflectors at the exit site of the micro-channels eject the gases arriving at high speed towards the opposite wall.
The collision of gas molecules between themselves generates a turbulence which creates a virtual valve and simultaneously the speed of gases is transformed in pressure. This pressure depends directly on the flowrate: if the flowrate (the amount of gas injected) is increased, the pressure will increase; if the flowrate is decreased, the pressure will decrease.

The Boussignac CPAP kit with nebulizer is supplied with the following items:
  • A Boussignac CPAP code 5570.13 with oxygene extension tube (200cm long) and a connecting tube to the manometer,
  • A nebulizer with "T" piece adaptor and oxygene extension tube (200cm long) code VBBNB31193.

The nebulizer can be used concomitantly with the CPAP for drug nebulization coupled to noninvasive ventilation.
