P0.1 and NIF
P0.1 and NIF provide diagnostic tools for assessment of the patient.
However, NIF can be quite difficult to correctly time and very uncomfortable for the patient which struggles against a blocked circuit.
We at Origin have analyzed the problems related to optimal NIF operation and have integrated features to improve timing with the patient and achieve the required measurements with minimal patient effort and suffering as well as improving safety aspects.
Among these are audible and visual indicators that the patient can hear and see, indicating that he/she should inhale thus improving patient timing and effectiveness.
Analysis of the patient’s efforts is continuously done and once patient fatigue is detected, NIF automatically terminates reducing unnecessary efforts by the patient, resuming ventilation to provide the required support.
