We studied the response time (RT) and reliability of three neonatal patient-triggered ventilator (PTV) systems: the Draeger Babylog 8000, the Bear Cub enhancement module (CEM), and the Infrasonics Star Sync. In 10 adult rabbits, airway flow and pressure recordings showed the RT of the Star Sync to be shorter than that of the Bear CEM (53 +/- 13 versus 65 +/- 15 ms, p < 0.05), and both were shorter than that of the Babylog (95 +/- 24 ms, p < 0.01) by ANOVA. The RT of the Bear CEM and the Babylog… CONTINUE READING
