About Vent Navigator:

  • Originally designed for pediatric ARDS, expanded for adult ARDS, including COVID-19-associated ARDS
  • Provided on a robust, secure, cloud
    based server
  • Original Vent Navigator software version being used in ongoing NIH
  • Compliant with federal (HIPAA) regulations to ensure security and
    privacy of patient information

Vent Navigator Provides:

  • Evidence-based, Lung Protective Ventilation (LPV) settings for adults
    and children
  • Diaphragm Protective Ventilation (DPV) recommendations intended to mitigate diaphragm atrophy
  • Simple-to-follow rules for mechanical ventilation from intubation
    through liberation
  • Recommendations for multiple modes of ventilation
  • Oxygenation and ventilation tables based on ARDSNet protocols
  • At-a-glance, ventilation assessment graph and pH nomogram

Improved Ventilation Strategies Can Help:

  • Reduce ventilator days
  • Lower mortality rates
  • Identify readiness for ventilator liberation
  • Limit VILI (Ventilator Induced Lung Injury)
  • Standardize best-practice, ventilator management choices 
  • Reduce days in ICU
  • Reduce sedative and analgesic exposure
  • Lower hospital-acquired infection rates
