Helmet Non Invasive Ventilation (NIV) | Configuring a Feature Rich Respiratory Circuit

Albeit very new in the US, helmet based ventilation is a growing interest within the medical community, and its simplicity and modularity are allowing use configurations in resource limited settings that enable significant reductions in ventilator demands. We are now seeing helmet NIV driven with wall-gas titration, driven with BiPAP, driven with modified CPAP, and even other novel and emerging device developments. As we’ve moved along in advancing the Subsalve Oxygen Treatment Hood, two distinct hood development paths have been observed – those that are themselves quite simple, and others that are feature rich. There are of course risks and benefits to each development path. Interestingly, we see this same development path divergence in diving technology. I tend to lean on the simplicity side, though that does not mean that there is any less functional performance, nor does it mean that risks [be them real or perceived] cannot be mitigated....
