Dr Harold Shim demonstrates hybrid use of two ventilator devices in an aeromedical transport in Africa. Oxylator EMX , pressure limited, gas driven device and Oxylog 3000, multimodal transport ventilator. very nice technique for making loading and unloading and ambulance transfer easier with smaller device sufficient for handover and transition phases between transport modalities, saving on bulky weight of bigger devices like the Oxylog 3000. Monitoring with small devices like EMMA capnometer and finger pulse oximeter would be fine for these transition phases of care too. Note use of Oxylog 3000 with variable FiO2 to conserve O2 supply which was issue with Oxylator.
Bravo, Dr Shim, bravo!
(I have no financial disclosures with any of these devices)
