The type of trigger system plays an important role. The innovative pressure trigger system MediTRIG detects the patient’s airway pressures and from them, it can identify the start of inspiration. The spontaneous breaths are supported by breaths from the device with additional pressure.
MediTRIG does not require any additional sensor to record the patient’s own breathing, such as in the case of an abdominal capsule. MediTRIG gently detects the necessary signals directly at the nose of the small patient.
The apnea functions are also available in SNIPPV mode. The SNIPPV and MediTRIG parameters can be individually adapted to the patient.
SNIPPV is defined by inspiration times which are as short as possible (0.2-0.5 sec) and breath rates up to 90/100 BPM. SNIPPV is a time-controlled mode, that is, the breath frequency is first and foremost set via the inspiration time and an expiration pause. In the expiration pause, the patient breathes on the CPAP level and the device does not emit any supportive breaths. In this way, the support can be individually adapted to the patient's needs. The level of pressure support is individually coordinated to the patient's needs with the aid of a second flow level.
