Ventilators for use during transportation of patients within the healthcare facility, or in emergency situations outside of the hospital. These ventilatory support devices are designed to work in a controlled mode, with preset breathing intervals, and not for spontaneous breathing.Most of them include monitors and alarms for indicating high and low pressure and respiratory failures.
1. Transport ventilators are normally used in emergency situations. They should offer the control mode of ventilation, which provides mandatory breaths at preset intervals and does not allow the patient to breathe spontaneously. For continuous care units, other modes are available, such as assist/control and SIMV.
2. Transport ventilator audible and visual alarms should be available at least in the following events: high and low pressures, low battery power level, loss of power, and loss of supply gases. Based on its level of sophistication, an emergency ventilator may have several alarms. They should all be clear. If users can adjust the alarm's volume, they should not be able to turn it down to an inaudible level.
3. If the alarm condition is not fixed, the alarm silence feature must reactivate automatically. When an alarm is silenced, a clear visual display should indicate which alarm is disabled.
4. An oxygen analyzer should monitor the delivered O2 or O2/air mixture. The analyzer can either be included with the emergency ventilator or purchased separately and should be placed in line with the breathing circuit and include an alarm for concentrations outside acceptable ranges.
5. All continuous ventilator controls should be clear with easy-to-understand functions. Misinterpretation of displays and control settings should not occur. Transport ventilator controls should be protected against accidental setting and sealed against fluid penetration. Fluid spills should not affect patient and operator safety and system performance.
6. Facilities should consider the ease with which the transport ventilator can be carried or transported before making the purchase. Users may need to maneuver the continuous ventilator to gain access to the controls or to accommodate space constraints. Transport ventilators need to be small and lightweight, resistant to tipping over, and easily mounted in different orientations
7. Another important factor for facilities to consider is how long can the transport ventilator operate on internal battery power.
8. The preferable emergency ventilator devices are the easy to operate ones. This is especially important in emergencies. Primary controls should be located on one side and should be protected against accidental setting changes.
9. All displays and labels should be clear and visible even in pale lighting and from different angles. They should be resistant to damage from liquid disinfectants and normal wear. Transport ventilators with additional modes, such as SIMV, should have visual indicators to identify when the continuous ventilator senses a breathing effort and what type of breath the patient receives.
10. Disabling visual indicators on a transport ventilator should not be possible. The alarms should allow quick evaluation and correction of the condition. The priority of the alarm should be indicated by different audible tones and visual indicators.
11. To expand the integral airway-pressure monitor, some additional monitors can be used. The preferable supplemental monitors include: exhaled-volume monitors, O2 monitors, and pulse oximeters.
12. Electromagnetic interference and electrostatic discharge should not affect transport ventilators' operation. These emergency ventilator devices should be able to operate in many adverse conditions.
13. Facilities with transport ventilators are strongly encouraged to use power-surge protectors, especially in an area with frequent power surges or thunderstorms.
14. The emergency ventilator operator manual should provide sufficient information for clinicians, users, and caregivers. Servicing a transport ventilator unit by a skilled technician should be easy.
15. MRI compatibility is a necessary feature for continuous ventilators used to transport patients to the MRI suite. Some suppliers offer transport ventilators constructed of materials compatible with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners.
