What is the meaning of AVM?

AVM is the abbreviation for Ā«Adaptive Ventilation ModeĀ».

Through constant adaptation to the lung mechanics, AVM ensures an optimal ventilation pattern for the patient. Assisted spontaneous respiration is possible for the patient at any time. The implemented OTIS equation ensures the lowest possible ventilation pressure during ventilation to reach the user-specified minute volume.

As a result, AVM safely accompanies patients from intubation to extubation and speeds up patient weaning. AVM reduces the number of interaction for the user and thus also the workload.
