The Usefulness Of Recruitment Manoeuvres

Recruitment manoeuvres provided with the flexiVent, such as the Pressure-Volume curves, are very useful to prevent the development of atelectasis

Atelectasis or airway closure spontaneously develops following anaesthesia and mechanical ventilation. This progressive loss in lung volume can have a significant impact on the subject’s

Let’s Talk About Impedance​

The current state-of-the-art in pre-clinical lung function measurements is the evaluation of the mechanical properties of the respiratory system using FOT.

New insights from AITox 2020!

The AITox seminars this year were quite interesting and informative, the organizers did a great job pivoting into the virtual world! If you missed the opportunity to attend, here are some highlights and what we learned.

Dynamic in-vivo imaging

Airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) is a very complex relationship between smooth muscle and localized inflammation with little known about the exact physiology behind a response.

FlexiVent – Used in Recent Pulmonary Fibrosis Research

flexivent preclinical lung function

FlexiVent – Used in Recent Pulmonary Fibrosis Research Pulmonary fibrosis describes a condition in which the normal lung anatomy is replaced by a process of active remodeling, deposition of extracellular matrix and dramatic changes in the phenotype of both fibroblasts and alveolar epithelial cells. This condition can be idiopathic, as in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), […]

Function Follows Form and Form Follows Function

Function follows form and form follows function The flexiVent makes assessing mechanical properties of the lung a relatively simple undertaking. However, understanding the underlying physiological processes and mathematical modelling can be daunting. A background in pulmonary structure, function, and of the forces at play within the system are key to making the most of the provided outcomes. […]
