New Disposable Adjustable EMS CPAP at EMS Today

At EMS Today in Washington DC this week Pulmodyne introduced a new model called the O2Max Trio. This is a completely original design. It makes delivering CPAP much easier and much more effective for EMS providers.

I’ve been a huge fan of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) since it was first introduced to EMS about 7-10 years ago. CPAP has been shown to definitively manage serious respiratory emergencies such as congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma.

CPAP stands for Constant or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. It raises both inspiratory and expiratory pressures in the lungs above normal atmospheric pressure. When the patient inhales, they get a blast of gas that makes it easier for them to inhale. When they breathe out, it is against a pressure resistance that opens tiny airways and improves ventilation.
