Vapotherm launches Precision Flow Hi-VNI respiratory device

Vapotherm said today that it launched its next-gen Precision Flow Hi-VNI system intended to relieve respiratory stress in spontaneously breathing patients. The Exeter, N.H.-based company touted that the next-gen device features improvements to both its software and hardware intended to improve reliability. The Precision Flow Hi-VNI system is designed to deliver maskless noninvasive ventilation to patients who are spontaneously breathing to relieve respiratory distress including hypercapnia, hypoxemia and dyspnea, Vapotherm said. The company’s Precision Flow devices are intended to provide high-velocity heated, humidified and oxygenated air to treat patients with conditions such as pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma and heart failure. “We’re excited to offer this next generation of the Precision Flow system to our customers. We remain dedicated to continuous improvement in the products and services we offer our customers and patients and these improvements deliver on that commitment,” CEO Joe Army said in a press release. Last December, data from a clinical trial indicated that Vapotherm’s IntellO2 module for its Precision Flow system greatly improved the chances of keeping premature babies in the target oxygenation range.

Conclusion: In subjects with COPD exacerbation, the HGS was lower than that of stable COPD patients, and this difference was not explained by age, comorbidities, severity of obstruction, or smoking. Physical inactivity and steroid use during exacerbation might be possible factors affecting HGS. HGS was moderately correlated with 6MWD in cases of exacerbation. It may be used as a measure of muscle performance in COPD exacerbation, especially when the 6-min walk test cannot be performed. PMID: 31190519 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Pantin CT, Southworth T, Wetzel K, Singh D Abstract Background: Allergic rhinitis is characterized by nasal inflammation in response to allergen exposure. Nasal allergen challenges are used in clinical trials evaluating drug effects. Reproducibility of nasal secretion cytokine responses and physiological measurements are needed to determine the optimum measurements and power calculations for future studies. We have investigated the reproducibility of nasal cytokine measurements, using ready-to-use polyvinyl acetate sponges to collect nasal secretions, and measurements of nasal physiological responses. ...

The objective of this study was to investigate the vulnerability of hearts with aging, LVH, diabetes, and pregnancy to ischemic insult and their response to pacing postconditioning- (PPC-) induced heart protection. Methods: Hearts isolated from aged, spontaneously hypertensive and diabetic male and female rats and hearts from pregnant female rats (n=8 per group) were subjected to coronary occlusion followed by reperfusion using a modified Langendorff system. Hemodynamics data were computed digitally, and cardiac damage was accessed by measurements of infarct size and cardiac enzyme release. Results: There were no...

hio S Abstract Background: Risk stratification is a crucial issue in heart failure. Clinicians seek useful tools to tailor therapies according to patient risk. Methods: A prospective, observational, multicenter study on stable chronic heart failure outpatients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (HFrEF). Baseline demographics, blood, natriuretic peptides (NPs), high-sensitivity troponin I (hsTnI), and echocardiographic data, including the ratio between tricuspid annular plane excursion and systolic pulmonary artery pressure (TAPSE/PASP), were collected. Association with death for any cause was ana...

Abstract Although the life-course concept of risk markers as potential etiological influences is well established in epidemiology, it has not featured in academic publications or clinical practice in the context of chronic widespread pain (CWP) and fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). Studies of risk markers are required considerations for evaluation of patients and for research because there is no single cause, pathological feature, laboratory finding, or biomarker for CWP or FMS. The early-life risk markers identified by extensive literature review with best evidence for potential causal influence on the development and...

Authors: Kubota M Abstract Recent evidence suggests that hyperuricemia is an important condition in children and adolescents, particularly in association with noncommunicable diseases. This review aims to summarize our current understanding of this condition in pediatric patients. An analysis of serum uric acid reference values in a healthy population indicates that they increase gradually with age until adolescence, with differences between the sexes arising at about 12 years of age. This information should be taken into consideration when defining hyperuricemia in studies. Gout is extremely rare in childre...

Conclusions: Cigarette smoke-induced hypermethylation of the mtTFA promoter is related to the initiation and progression of COPD. Our finding may provide a new strategy for the intervention of COPD by developing demethylation agents targeting mtTFA hypermethylation. PMID: 31198067 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Normocapnic hyperpnoea training may reduce the incidence of respiratory symptoms, improve pulmonary function and quality of life, and reduce depression in patients with chronic spinal cord injury, regardless of their neurological level of injury, even at more than 24 months after injury.
