We use Maquet servo-i non NAVA, for almost 5 years without any problem.. Recently we tried SLE 5000, it keeps on alarming every time we put on the baby (we also tried the HFO mode on it).. Not succesful, so it retire right now.. Please share the experience with this SLE 5000.. Some friends also have the same problems..

We also have GE, but not satisfied with it.. It always show apnoe in the monitor, eventough the baby is breathing.. The technician said that we should put off the flow sensor if we use PCV mode (really???)..

We also used to use AVEA, but the problem is also with the flow sensor.. It's easily broken..

For me, servo i is the best..

We use babylog and SLE5000. The SLE has a very sensitive sensor, to avoid the alarm all the time you just have to recalibrate the flow sensor everytime you disconnect the baby, be careful with water in the flow sensor! By recalibrating the sensor we were able to handle this problem and the SLE works really good, especially in HFO, but we still have problems with PSV mode and guaranteed volume, anyone can help?

We have Drager babylog 8000 plus, Sensormedics 3100A and SLE 5000. I prefer the SLE 5000 for it's user friendly, power and versatility.

hmmm that's funny SLE should be a quite ventilator, it's probably your settings? how much trigger do you use? how much is the leak limit? are you using a flow sensor? what alarms do you usually encounter?

hi there, the current flow sensors of the SLE were quite tough right now. I agree with you about the sensitivity but i suggest that the positioning of the baby and the patient circuit shoyuld be taken care always. What is the problem with the PSV mode and the TTV (targeted tidal volume)?

Hi Servo-i , SLE perfect. For beginners SLE5000 (HFO)can be used as dual and rescue ventilation ,cost effective .

Hi we use SLE 5000

I'mn trying to get a stratedgy for TTV- PSV TTV seems to give me the best result - the baby controls rate, ITime and pressure and so weans itself.

What are other peoples experience of TTV?
