autovent 3000
AutoVent 3000
  • Chronically Ventilated Patients
    • Indications
        • Point of origin could be from anywhere:
          • Long term facility
          • Home
          • Outpatient setting
          • Hospital
                  • AND
        • Reason for transport isn’t a respiratory problem
autovent 30001
AutoVent 3000
  • Indications (Continued)
    • Patient’s ventilator settings are:
      • PEEP less than or = to 10 cmH2O
      • Peak pressures are less than or = to 30
          • AND
    • No changes in the patients normal ventilator settings are required during the transport.
autovent 30002
AutoVent 3000
  • Scene of An Emergency Ventilated Patient
    • Indications
      • A non-chronically ventilated patient who is in respiratory arrest.
autovent 30003
AutoVent 3000
  • Contraindications
    • Children who have not reached their 9th birthday
    • Patient is in Cardiac Arrest
    • If patient is “bucking the tube”
autovent 30004
AutoVent 3000
  • What does it mean if the patient is “Bucking the Tube?”
    • The patient could be regaining consciousness
    • The patient is in respiratory distress
autovent 30005
AutoVent 3000
  • Signs of respiratory distress in a ventilated patient
    • Increased secretions from tracheostomy site (mucous plug)
    • Hypoxia, cyanosis, or decreased oxygen saturation levels
    • Increased work of breathing
    • Altered mental status due to hypoxia
    • Agitation and anxiety
autovent 30006
AutoVent 3000
  • How To Use the AutoVent 3000
      • Select Breaths Per Minute (BPM)
      • Select WHITE Adult setting
        • We will not be using the orange CHILD setting
      • Select Tidal Volume
        • 8mL per kg (or whatever the patient setting is)
      • Select PEEP setting
        • Match patient setting
        • Disposable valve
        • Max setting of 10
autovent 30007
AutoVent 3000
  • What is PEEP?
    • Positive End Expiratory Pressure
      • Constant pressure that keeps the alveoli open
      • Increases the volume of gas remaining in the lungs at the end of expiration
        • Improves gas exchange
      • Average healthy adult has PEEP of 5
autovent 30008
AutoVent 3000
  • Destination
    • Closest appropriate hospital
  • Cleaning
    • Must be cleaned after EVERY use
      • Clean with Cavicide
      • On Boundtree website
      • Tubing is disposable but remaining equipment needs to be cleaned
autovent 30009
AutoVent 3000
  • Who can use the AutoVent?
    • Paramedics ONLY
    • CRT-I can only transport chronically vented patient if the patient has his own vent and the pt’s care provider manages the vent during transport
autovent 300010
AutoVent 3000
  • Things to Remember
    • Always treat the PATIENT
      • Maintain situational awareness when managing the AV3000
autovent 300011
AutoVent 3000
  • Things to Remember (Continued)
      • Have two ALS providers check and verify the ventilator settings
      • Any acutely ill or injured breathingpatient at the “scene of an emergency” shall be manually ventilated
      • NOTE: This is referring to patients who are not chronically ventilated.
autovent 300012
AutoVent 3000
  • Things to Remember (Continued)
      • Only hand tighten the fittings
      • Use a full size D portable oxygen cylinder – AV3000 machines consume a portable O2 cylinder within 23 minutes.
      • Will not run if the oxygen tank has less than 200L
autovent 300013
AutoVent 3000
  • Things to Remember (Continued)
      • When switching a chronically ventilated patient over to the AutoVent 3000:
        • Monitor/trend for ONE minute to ensure that the patient tolerates and accepts the ventilator
      • High pressure alarm activates and dumps oxygen at 45-55cm H2O & Barotrauma occurs at 60cm H2O
autovent 300014
AutoVent 3000
  • Autovents are on M712, M715, M703 and PE732
    • They will not be placed on any additional units
  • Restocking

King Vision Laryngoscope
  • Why are we implementing this?
    • VL is a tool proven to improve first pass success
    • The EMS Management wants to ensure that providers have the latest technology and that every attempt is being made to make your job easier and safer
    • Data from Howard County was overwhelming
      • Initial success rate for ALL intubations was 68%
      • After implementing VL, success rate increased to 95% on the FIRST ATTEMPT

  • Based on the international guidelines for CPR
lucas chest compression system2
LUCAS Chest Compression System
  • Age Limits
    • None, as long as the patient fits
  • Size Limits
    • Alarm will sound if plunger is too low
      • This means that the patient is too small
