    General operation Menu tab User preferences can be adjusted using the Menu window. There is a Brightness setting button for day or night view. The Loudness setting button adjusts the volume of alarms and the audible feedback click. The Alarm Volume Escalation feature*, if enabled, will escalate alarm volume when a high priority alarm is not responded to within 40 seconds.

    Patient data and waveforms The data screen displays alarms and patient data, which include rate, estimated tidal volume, estimated minute ventilation, peak inspiratory pressure, patient trigger %, %, and leak. The breath-type indicator color corresponds to waveform color: turquoise for spontaneously triggered, orange for timed triggered and blue for exhale.
  • Page 12: Standby

    General operation Standby Standby suspends ventilation and retains current settings when the clinician wants to temporarily disconnect the patient from the ventilator. Ventilator settings and most menu functions can be changed during the Standby mode. To activate Standby 1. Press the Standby tab. The Entering Standby window appears.
  • Page 13: Mask Leak Symbols

    Respironics total face mask port within mask) The Leak symbol represents the intentional leak characteristics of the mask, and the proper V60 mask/port settings will ensure the greatest accuracy and optimum performance. If the Leak symbol does not appear on a Respironics patient interface, use the chart above to determine the proper V60 setting.

    General operation Exhalation port settings After pressing the appropriate mask setting, press the correct exhalation port setting. The chart below references the various exhalation port settings and when an exhalation port test is recommended. An exhalation port test is only recommended when using a PEV (plateau exhalation valve) or non-Respironics exhalation ports with unknown leak characteristics.
