TSlider provides non-stop ventilatory support when switching a patient from one mechanical ventilator to another.
The TSlider is a multi-port valve that connects directly to an endotracheal tube and allows continuous oxygen flow with no loss of PEEP (Positive End Expiratory Pressure) or FRC (Functional Residual Capacity) when switching from one mechanical ventilator to another
Why is it Needed?
A key challenge in mechanical ventilation involves switching a patient from one mechanical ventilator to another. During the transition, the patient loses ventilatory support which poses a significant risk to respiratory health due to the loss of critical therapeutic breathing and oxygenation.
