Viasys Bird VIP



The Viasys Bird VIP is a ventilator for neonate and pediatric patients. The Viasys VIP provides controlled, assisted control, SIMV and, CPAP ventilation mode. The System offers responsiveness breath by breath, providing a higher level of accuracy and performance. Features of the ventilator include Flow Synchronization, Termination sensitivity, and a dual breathing type. This helps promote the synchrony of the patient as well as weaning. The Technology on the Viasys Bird VIP is continually checking the breathing patterns of the patient and evaluating to improve the ventilation and for the infant. It provides peak pressure up to 120 cmH20 and has a tidal volume range of 20 to 995 ml.

  • Designed specifically for neonatal, infant, and pediatric patients.
  • Electronically and pneumatically powered and microprocessor controlled.
  • Can be time or volume cycled.
  • Incorporates features like Flow Synchronization, Termination Sensitivity, and Dual Mode Breath Type to promote patient synchrony and facilitate weaning.
