During ventilation, a ventilator is used to pump air into the patient’s lungs and remove carbon dioxide from the lungs. The ventilator tube is placed on the face with a mask for “non-invasive” ventilation and inserted through the patient’s mouth or nose into the trachea. Ventilation is usually given for a set period of time, depending on the patient’s needs, and may also be combined with other medical interventions such as oxygen therapy, medications and physical therapy.
The FISSO respiratory systems were developed in close cooperation with the University Hospital Zurich. The purely mechanical central clamping unit allows easy and fast alignment and safe holding of breathing tubes.
