FLEXIMAG PLUS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
IS THE COMPRESSED AIR AND OXYGEN REGULATOR VALVE MANDATORY?
No. At the inlet of the pneumatic module, two valves regulate the pressure of the gases coming from the hospital network or cylinders, trying to ensure an adequate range to the equipment.
IS THE DISTAL FLOW SENSOR AUTOCLAVABLE (ENVITEC, WITH HEATED FILAMENT)?
No. For internal disinfection of the DISTAL flow sensor, do not use instruments that can generate mechanical stress, such as compressed air or water jet, with the risk of damaging the filament. Make sure the sensor is completely dry before use, as residual alcohol can damage the filament.
Disconnect the distal sensor from the expiratory valve and the connecting cable and wait 30 minutes.
Soak the sensor in a 70% ethanol solution for 1 hour.
Let it dry naturally for 30 minutes in a room before reassembling the appliance.
IN ICU FANS, DOES NEBULIZATION CHANGE PATIENT VENTILATION?
No. The ventilation does not change as it is synchronized with the patient's inspiration and there is volume and FiO2 compensation.
IS ANY CAPNOGRAPHY SENSOR (ETCO2) PULSE OXIMETER COMPATIBLE WITH FLEXIMAG PLUS?
No, it is only compatible with the main IRMATM MASIMO sensor (EtCo2) and the Masimo MS-2040 pulse oximeter.
DOES FLEXIMAG PLUS ALLOW THE USE OF ONE OF THE GASES?
Yes, the use of the equipment allows even in the absence of one of the gases (O2 or compressed air), to continue ventilation. If you use 02 only, ventilate the patient at 100% O2, if you use compressed air only, ventilate the patient at 21%.
CAN YOU USE ANY CIRCUIT ON THE FAN?
Yes, as long as the breathing circuits are approved by Anvisa.
IN NON-INVASIVE VENTILATION IN FLEXIMAG PLUS, WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM VALUE OF THE LEAKAGE COMPENSATION?
Up to 50 l / min.
HOW LONG CAN THE FAN REMAIN WITHOUT ELECTRICAL CURRENT?
Power backup system that allows battery operation for up to 3 and a half hours disconnected from the network.
IS FLEXIMAG PLUS INTENDED FOR WHICH PATIENTS?
Neonatal, pediatric, adults, and adults with morbid obesity
HOW SHOULD I DISINFECT THE RESPIRATORY COMPONENTS AFTER USE?
All available information is present in the user manual, but in general, the entire circuit, connectors, proximal sensors, silicone line, expiratory valve and diaphragm must be sent to the autoclave. Also visit the reprocessing guide.
CAN I DISINFECT THE DIAPHRAGM OF THE EXPIRATORY VALVE WITH 70% ALCOHOL?
No, alcohol can dry out the silicone film and damage the operation of the equipment. Also visit the reprocessing guide.
HOW LONG DOES THE SILENCE ALARM LAST?
The silence alarm time lasts 120 seconds (2 minutes).
HOW SHOULD THE PROXIMAL FLOW SENSOR BE SANITIZED?
It must be cleaned in an autoclave.
HOW TO CHANGE THE VENTILATION OF AN ADULT PATIENT TO PEDIATRIC?
The device must be turned off and on again and pediatric mode must be selected from the initial menu.
FLEXIMAG PLUS VENTILA OBESE ADULT?
Yes, Fleximag Plus serves neonates, pediatrics, adults, and adults with morbid obesity.
DOES FLEXIMAG PLUS MEET EXTREME PREMATURE?
Yes, Fleximag Plus serves morbidly obese neonates, pediatrics, adults, and extremely preterm adults.
MY CITY HAS A STANDARD VOLTAGE OF 220 VOLTS. DO I NEED AN ADAPTER FOR THE APPLIANCE?
No, Fleximag Plus is bivolt with automatic switching to adapt to the electrical network.
HOW DO I PERFORM NON-INVASIVE VENTILATION?
Non-invasive, NIV or NIV ventilation is available for all modes and is accessible through the ventilation options window (VENTILATION OPTIONS), ventilator capable of automatically compensating for higher leakage flows and ignores high minute volume, high tidal volume and flow sensor verification alarms, after being enabled.
HOW MANY PARAMETERS CAN I MONITOR IN FLEXIMAG PLUS?
In the monitor menu it is possible to view up to 28 parameters on the screen.
HOW MANY TRENDING HOURS IS THE FLEXIMAG PLUS?
The equipment records all events that have occurred in the last 72 hours of ventilation, such as adjusted ventilation parameters, main monitored values and all conditions. alarm during that period. It is possible to observe the TREND curves of up to 3 ventilation parameters simultaneously, among the 13 parameters available for selection.
WHAT ARE THE FLEXIMAG PLUS MANEUVERS?
P0.1, slow vital capacity, incarceration volume, bending curve P / V and Pi max.
IS THE USE OF THE PROXIMAL AND DISTAL FLOW SENSOR MANDATORY?
No, you have the option of using the proximal or distal sensor.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO USE A HUMIDIFYING BASE?
Yes, it is possible to use the heated humidification base.
IS THE PLV MODE ONLY FOR WHICH TYPE OF PATIENT?
The PLV mode is only available for neonates and the volume modes not enabled for this category, only the Guaranteed Volume.
HOW DO I ENABLE VG MODE IN NEONATAL?
To use the guaranteed volume mode, it is only necessary with a proximal NEONATAL flow sensor and in PLV mode with VOLUME GUARANTEED ON.
