The dual float auto fill humidification chamber can be used in a variety of respiratory support therapies ranging from CPAP through to full mechanical ventilation including high frequency oscillation for all size patients. This chamber offers the clinician a constant water level, as the used fluid is automatically replaced from a reservoir bag. As a result the system compressible volume does not fluctuate, making the auto fill chamber the first choice in all intensive care areas from neonatal through to adult.
The manual fill chamber feature a clamp along the fill line which isolates the chamber from the fluid reservoir bag. This chamber requires the clinician to monitor the water level and open the clamp when more fluid is required. Seen as a lower cost alternative and is sometimes used in high driving pressure applications (eg. nFlow™).
The low volume manual fill chamber also features the fill line clamp. With very low compressible volume, it is ideally suited for applications like advanced high frequency ventilation for all sizes of patient.
