The Recruitment maneuver allows clinicians to perform a single or multi-step recruitment maneuver via continuous ventilation at clinician defined settings.
The user can select the number of steps, the timing and pressure values for the low and high phases of the step and the end PEEP.
When activated, the ventilator temporarily changes from the active mode to the maneuver defined BiLEVEL settings.
During the setup and operation of the maneuver, the ventilator provides visual indication of the defined maneuver parameters and its progress.
When the maneuver is completed, the ventilator automatically returns to the pre-maneuver mode resuming normal ventilation.
