- Acute pulmonary oedema (APO)
- Dyspnea and acute respiratory distress
- Severe asthma
- Fibroscopic procedures
- Oxygenation (post-operative) in patients at risk of hypoxia (such as cardiothoracic surgery and abdominal surgery in obese patients)
- Post-extubation weaning from mechanical ventilation
- Boussignac CPAP is an easy of use portable device for respiratory assistance for spontaneously breathing patients, enabling the continuous delivery of oxygen or air maintaining positive end expiratory pressure in the respiratory system.
- Boussignac CPAP has been specifically designed system to prevent any barotrauma and volotrauma.
- Boussignac CPAP is compatible with all face masks, endotracheal tubes, tracheostomy tubes and high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters.
DescriptionRespiratory 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 avoid intubation and mechanical ventilation and associated complications (prolonged hospitalization, infections, etc.)
- To allow a safe extubation postoperatively for patients at risk of hypoxemia and thus avoid mechanical ventilation and associated complications
- To contribute to the benefit of weaning from mechanical ventilation and avoid associated complications
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).
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.
N.B. It is possible to connect the Boussignac CPAP to an endotracheal tube or to a tracheostomy tube using the adaptor code 555.01 together with an artificial nose such as Hygroflux code 501.01.
