Higher Reliability Ventilators Through Self Aware Sensors™

The Ventilator industry continues to be driven to provide the industry’s highest reliability products with appropriate features at acceptable cost levels. Driving to higher levels of reliability has been shown to saves lives and through detailed analysis identifying and replacing sensors prior to failing, directly impacts and lowers overall system alarm rates.

We are working closely today with a group of Ventilator manufacturers to define and develop break-through technology focused on dramatically lowering overall system alarm rates during critical care therapy cycles.

VN Series

Medical ventilators are sophisticated mechanical ventilation systems designed to move breathable air into and out of the lungs for patients physically unable to breathe on their own. The current generation of advanced systems are electronically controlled through embedded processing to tightly manage air pressure and flow characteristics to meet individual patient requirements. These systems are classified as life critical as system failure may result in serious harm to the patient, thus great precautions are taken to ensure the highest levels of system reliability. As such, these mechanical ventilators are carefully designed to ensure single points of failure do not harm patients.

Superior Sensor Technology is now in development of a new advanced offering to dramatically lower overall system alarm rates due to traditional sensor failure issues.  Our Self Aware Sensor™ technology enables our customers to track any changes in sensor error, enabling the replacement of marginal sensors prior to a system alarm incident. As a result, system alarm rates during life critical therapy sessions are improved by 1000x – relative to competing traditional sensor solutions.  We are working closely today with our system partners to ensure that this technology will change the reliability landscape of the Ventilation market.
