Who can benefit?
The Life2000™ Ventilation System is for patients who:
- Have chronic respiratory failure due to COPD
- Suffer from neuromuscular diseases or restricted thoracic disorders (e.g., kyphoscoliosis)
- Are preparing for or recovering from a lung transplant
- Have experienced multiple exacerbations
- Have reduced oxygen saturation with minimal exercise
A continuum-of-care solution
The innovative design is adaptable across multiple settings, from the ICU and long-term care to the home.
- Early hospital mobilization: assists patients in ICU settings to transition from complete bed rest to achieving early mobility milestones such as sitting, standing, and walking
- In-home ventilation and rehabilitation: facilitates ambulation, which may help reduce the risk of additional exacerbations and unplanned hospitalizations1-4
Optimize mobility and comfort
Improves quality of life and autonomy while supporting positive clinical outcomes such as:
- Allowing patients to participate more fully in life and to perform activities of daily living (ADLs) in and outside their homes*
- Enabling patients to participate in pulmonary rehabilitation and COPD exercises
- Patients report lower dyspnea, fatigue, and discomfort scores during ADLs5*
*Based on studies performed on proportional open ventilation technology.
