Lung Protection Strategy

Lung Protection strategy: an integrated approach
The lung is a delicate structure that is highly sensitive. Mechanical ventilation can be detrimental if too much volume or pressure is delivered. And patients affected by lung disease are highly susceptible to ventilation-associated lung injury.1

A Lung Protection strategy can help ensure that different zones receive the treatment they need

CARESCAPE* R860 offers an integrated solution

The CARESCAPE R860 was designed with a simple and universal navigation scheme. The Lung Protection tools calculate FRC, providing the clinician with data for determining the optimal PEEP setting for the patient.
