English term or phrase:port-a-lung
Pomagala koja potpomažu ventilacionu potporu
Negative Pressure Ventilation (NPV).
There are three modes of delivering a negative pressure in order to perform breathing: the chest shell (cuirass), the Vest, A Port-a-lung. For all three types of NPV, negative pressure is delivered to the chest and abdomen to cause an inspiration as the negative pressure causes a suction of the air into the lungs.
Explanation: ili ventilacija potpomognuta (Porta-Lung) komorom za disanje ili Porta-Lung komora za neinvazivnu potporu negativnim tlakom
The PortaLung is a fibreglass cylinder which the child sleeps in with his head out the right end of the chamber through the spiral collar. Their head rests on a pillow on the platform. The negative pressure (flow of air) is created by the NEV-100 sucking air from the chamber through the tubing that connects to the two devices.
The Porta-Lung ventilating chamber body is made of molded fiberglass and allows for easy sealing of the patient below the neck from atmospheric pressure. Respiratory gas exchange can be enhanced utilizing both negative and positive pressures within the chamber while allowing the patient’s head to be outside of the chamber in direct communication with the atmosphere.
