OXYMAG 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 USE OF THE HEPA FILTER MANDATORY?
Breathing circuit, Proximal flow sensor, silicone line, exhalation valve and diaphragm.
IS THE DISTAL FLOW SENSOR AUTOCLAVABLE (ENVITEC, WITH HEATED FILAMENT)?
No. For disinfection:
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.
IS THE USE OF THE HEPA FILTER MANDATORY?
Its mandatory nature will depend on the protocol of the acting institution. The HEPA filter is indicated to prevent cross infections between the patient and the mechanical ventilator, several academic articles relate the high efficiency of the HEPA filter for the filtration of bacteria and viruses. It should be mentioned that the accessory behaves as a hydrophobic component and, according to the manufacturers, of low resistance to air flow.
DOES OXYMAG ALLOW LESS THAN 35%?
Yes, through an external Blender, it allows adjusting the FIO2 concentration from 21% to 100%.
CAN I VENTILATE THE PATIENT WITHOUT THE OXYMAG PROXIMAL FLOW SENSOR?
Yes, but there will be no volumetric monitoring of the patient. In addition, it loses graphic tracking, being only possible to view the Pressure x Time curve.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO ATTACH THE HEPA FILTER TO THE OXYMAG?
Yes, on the exhalation valve.
CAN YOU USE ANY CIRCUIT ON THE FAN?
Yes, as long as the breathing circuits are approved by Anvisa.
IS CIRCUIT COMPENSATION AUTOMATIC?
Yes, when the ventilator self-test is performed with the circuit connected.
IN NON-INVASIVE VENTILATION, WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM VALUE OF THE LEAKAGE COMPENSATION?
Up to 40 l / min.
IS THE SELF-ASSESSMENT MANDATORY?
No, even recommended, you can start ventilation without doing a self-test.
HOW SHOULD THE PROXIMAL FLOW SENSOR BE SANITIZED?
It must be cleaned in an autoclave.
CAN THE PRESSURE LINE PASS THROUGH THE AUTOCLAVE?
Yes, along with the circuit and the flow sensor.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HEPA AND HME FILTERS?
The HEPA filter is a virus and bacteria retention filter with efficient filtration. 99.9%, it must be coupled before the expiratory valve, it serves to avoid the spread of microorganisms in the environment avoiding cross infection. The HME filter is a heat exchanger placed in the Y of the circuit, its function is to heat and humidify the air in the gas network through expiratory condensation.
CAN I DO NIV ON OXYMAG?
Yes, in any ventilatory mode.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO COMPENSATE FOR LEAKS DURING NIV?
Yes, touch the screen - settings - and enable the NIV function.
HOW LONG DOES THE EQUIPMENT BATTERY LAST?
Lasts 6.5 hours.
HOW LONG DOES THE FULL CHARGE OF THE BATTERY TAKE?
WHEN NOT IN USE, CAN I REMOVE OXYMAG FROM THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET IF THE BATTERY IS CHARGED?
No, it must be left connected to the mains, even at full load, to maintain the useful life of the battery.
OXYMAG VENTILA WHAT TYPES OF PATIENT?
Neonatal, pediatric and adult.
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.
HOW IS THE OXYMAG FAN ADAPTED TO THE SPECIFIC MODALITIES OF THE ADULT, PEDIATRIC OR NEONATAL PATIENT?
WHAT PERIODICITY SHOULD I PERFORM THE OXYMAG SELF-ASSESSMENT?
It is recommended that the self-test be performed daily, as a routine.
CAN I DISINFECT THE DIAPHRAGM OF THE EXPIRATORY VALVE WITH 70% ALCOHOL?
No, Oxymag has an atmospheric air entrainment system (Venturi system) that is made possible by the injection of medicinal oxygen. Without the use of external blender, you can if you deliver 35% to 100% oxygen.
MY CITY HAS A STANDARD VOLTAGE OF 220 VOLTS. DO I NEED AN ADAPTER FOR THE APPLIANCE?
No, Oxymag is bivolt with automatic switching to match the power grid.
HOW DO I ACCESS OTHER RESPIRATORY PARAMETERS?
Press the selector button and you will be able to access the second line of respiratory parameters.
DOES THE OXYMAG 02 HAVE 100% SUCTION FUNCTION?
Yes, up to 120 seconds.
