Hi. We have been using the VN for over a year. I can try my best to answer your questions. Is there something specific?


Hi all:

In our Neonatal Unit We have a new Babylog VN500. Someone who has experience with handling?

Thank You.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to respond.

1) This machine has given cycling problems?

2) They have had problems with hoses circuits?

3) What type of humidifier use?

4) What ventilaciíon Modalities of use more often?

5) How about control tidal volume during HFOV?

We haven't had cycling problems at our center. Did it pass the preuse check and the circuit check? Have you tried changing the sensitivity, clearing bronchial secretions, clearing water from hoses or optimizing ETT leak (if present)? We only use disposable F&P circuits with MR series heater. We most often use the a/c p/c mode with VG. With HFO, our VG is set between 1.6 and 2.2 cc/kg although I haven't seen evidence to prove or disprove this practice. Just remember that the function of the frequency is different in hfo+VG compared to hfo without VG. Also, when on hfo or hfo VG we use a low compliance heated chamber instead of self feed chamber. Less fluctuations of MAP with this.
