Saving and improving lives…
Dr. Forrest M. Bird revolutionized the world of respiratory care. His innovative Flow Ventilation® technology has been saving lives in adult, pediatric and neonatal critical care as well as military and transport applications for nearly 30 years. Today, Flow Ventilation® is helping save and improve lives across the entire spectrum of respiratory care:
the safest technology for the most fragile lungs.
Percussionaire® products provide critical care Flow Ventilation® that delivers Air Exchange, Airway Clearance and Lung Recruitment for mild through critical “rescue” care, including hypoxemia, hypercapnia, aspiration, smoke inhalation and ARDS. Our critical care devices provide Bi-phasic pulse amplification and shaping for tidal volume ventilation.
The most effective technology for patient therapy
Flow Ventilation® enables improved clearance of secretions while supporting lung recruitmentand gas exchange in a highly lung-protective manner. These benefits are available to patients of all ages, from neonates to elderly COPD patients.
Our easy to use devices can provide patients improved management of exacerbations and a reduced length of stay.
Military and Hospital Transport
Flow Ventilation® with ventilators developed by Dr. Bird specifically for the military have helped save numerous soldier’s lives during transport from battlefield medical units to major trauma centers. The unique characteristics of Flow Ventilation® with fully pneumatic drive units and the Phasitron make it ideally suited for use in airplanes and helicopters. The same technology enabled thousands of critically ill babies to be safely transported from one hospital to another.
Technology that saves lives in critical care hospitals, can now change lives at home.
Flow Ventilation® (also known as IPV® or HFPV) is a gentle alternative to conventional or high-frequency pressure ventilation. For 30 years it has been saving the lives of the most critically sick patients in hospitals with astonishingly effective gas exchange, lung recruitment and airway clearance.
Flow Ventilation® has also been improving lives for patients at home, where it is widely recognized as the most effective means of therapeutic secretion clearance.
