TWINSTREAM Superimposed High – Frequency Jet -Ventilation (SHFJV®)
TwinStream™ Multi Mode Respirator for tubeless jet laryngoscopy, jet bronchoscopy, jet tracheoscopy and all types of jet ventilation in the fields of surgery and intensive medicine.
Superimposed High – Frequency Jet –Ventilation (SHFJV®)
TwinStream™ is the first microprocessor-driven Superimposed High-frequency Jet ventilation apparatus and sets an entirely new standard in the jet ventilation technique.
The first TwinStream™ jet ventilation systems for superimposed high-frequency jet ventilation were delivered at the beginning of 2006. In the meantime, users in Europe, Middle East, Russia an now China trust TwinStream™ as well as its patented jet endoscopes and accessories as a system-based solution for jet ventilation.
All displays for monitoring are explicit and clearly structured. The alarm limits can be defined by the operator and can be set rapidly. TwinStream™ is the only ventilation apparatus in the world which, on the one hand, offers the option of being used in combination with patented jet endoscopes and, on the other hand, permits measurement of inspiratory oxygen concentration (FiO2Aw) in the respiratory tract by the use of 3- and 4-lumen catheters. The inspiratory oxygen concentration limit (FiO2Aw) which is set within the respirator by the electronic mode, and in the “laser-safe mode” for laser surgery, is an essential safety factor of TwinStream™. This function makes it the first ventilation apparatus in the world that prevents an excessively high inspiratory oxygen concentration (FiO2Aw) and thus reduces the risk of burn. The use of laser is permitted only when the oxygen concentration in the respiratory tract is below 35%. Besides, an end-tidal CO2 measurement module (etCO2) is optionally available.
