iBR: Intelligent Backup Rate

iBR is designed to enhance the conventional approach to backup breaths. It maximises your patient’s opportunities for spontaneous breathing by delivering support only when it’s needed and tailoring that support to meet their real needs.

What does iBR do?

Provides back up breaths intelligently: provides back up breaths within 2 boundaries : target patient rate and background frequency which is two-thirds of the target rate. iBR will provide backup breaths only if there’s an apnoes or lack of effort, but won’t provide unnecessary support for pauses caused by cough or sigh.

Reacts swiftly and enhances comfort: designed to safely and quickly return your patient to target rate as iBR provides minimal pressure support and best synchronization at the time of backup breaths. This improves patient’s comfort and compliance.

Time saving personalisation: automatically determines the most suitable iBR for your patient based on their spontaneous stable awake rate, giving you peace of mind and ensuring your patient receives personalised ventilation.

ResMed NIV technologies

A key requirement for sucess in NIV is to improve patient comfort, compliance and treatment efficacy though excellent patient ventilator synchrony. Lumis™ 100 VPAP ST features 3 unique ResMed technologies that work together to achieve this synchrony.

  • Intuitive and simple to navigate

    The user interface on Lumis ventilators has been designed with you and your patients in mind: it’s intuitive and simple to navigate. It’s easy to view and personalise patient control settlings, as well as gain valuable insight into their progress with a sleep report at the end of every session.

    Automatic humidification

    When used with a HumidAir™ heated humidifiers and ClimateLineAir™ heated tube, Lumis delivers automatic humidification Climate Control Auto. This mode comes pre-set with the temperature and humidity levels designed for optimal comfort, so you can set your patients up to receive all the benifits of humidification instantly- no settings to change and no complicated menus to navigate.

Customisation for comfort

For patients who need greater levels of pressure support (e.g. COPD patients), turning the ventilator off at the end of therapy can be quite abrupt. Lumis’s optional Ramp Down feature gradually reduces the pressure support delivered to help ease patients into spontaneous breathing.
