The benefits of using Flusso™ are divided into three main areas:
Reduction of repetitive over-distention and collapse of alveoli resulting in prevention of alveolar injury during positive pressure ventilation by minimizing circuit disconnections and subsequent lung de-recruitment.
Reducing the number of breaks in the ventilator circuit minimizes staff exposure to organisms with the ventilator circuit during both active and passive ventilation.
Flusso aligns with Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) protocols by lessening the need to break the ventilator circuit thereby reducing the potential of introducing organisms into the patient breathing circuit.
