With 700,000 deaths a year in Europe, including 60,000 in France, cardio-respiratory arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the world. Among emergency procedures, rescue workers perform artificial ventilation of the patient. But this procedure, essential to the survival of the person in respiratory distress, is delicate: the amount of air blown must be in adequacy with the pulmonary characteristics of the patient; the insufflations must be regular, sufficiently spaced and without air leakage. Misused, it can be useless, cause lung damage and worsen the patient’s clinical condition.
Vedia System helps guide ventilation and indicates to doctors, first-aiders or firefighters the right volumes to provide to patients; it also allows to evaluate the quality of the ventilation in real time. Thus the operator can adjust accordingly the pressures that he exerts on the balloon and practice adequate and optimal manual ventilation.
