Conference Workshop

Title Bellavista Workshop
Details Date: 19 Apr 2019 (Friday)
Time: 8.30am to 5.30pm
Venue: Summit 1 Theatre, Level 3, Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre
Synopsis The Bellavista 1000 series ventilator is unique as it is one of the only devices that can be configured to provide all aspects of ventilation.

The key points about Bellavista are as follows

  • The latest in turbine technology using proportional valves which is the same concept as conventional high-end ventilators (>260 Lpm maximum flow)
  • A configurable user interface
  • Configurable Pathology defined startup options
  • High performing NIV and High Flow O2 therapy modes
  • Automatic leak compensation (>120 LPM)
  • Automatic rise time for pressure-based modes
  • Automatic synchrony in PSV (invasive and non-invasive ventilation)
  • AVM mode which provides complete automatic ventilation from full ventilation to automatic weaning
  • Lung recruitment tool for analysis of the patient’s potential to recruit followed by recruitment and setting of optimal PEEP
  • Esophageal pressure and Trans-Pulmonary pressure measurements.

Based on the above the course will give the attendees an overview of the Bellavista and its clinical benefits.

The speakers are all experts on the use of Bellavista.
