Frequently Asked Questions for COVID-19 Emergency Response with VOCSN

Below are some answers to questions we often receive about VOCSN, but please email us at covid19@venteclife.com if you have any specific questions. Click here to download these FAQs for reference.

Some versions of the Ventec One-Circuit™ include a cuff around the exhalation valve that can be used to attach a bacterial filter. If your patient circuit does not include this cuff, it is recommended that you place a filter inline after the exhalation valve.

Yes. The travel suction canister and the external suction canister adapter are equipped with a hydrophobic filter that offers a high filtration efficiency.

Yes. VOCSN configurations with software version 4.09R and later include an Inspiratory Hold feature that provides static compliance and plateau pressure measurements.

  • With an Active circuit, PEEP can be set between 0 and 25 cmH2O.
  • With a Passive or Valveless circuit, PEEP can be set between 4 and 25 cmH2O.

  • With a high-pressure oxygen source, oxygen can be delivered from 21% - 100% FiO2.
  • With a low-pressure oxygen source, oxygen can be bled-in up to 20 L/min .
  • With the VOCSN internal oxygen concentrator, oxygen from 0.5 to 6.0 L/min O2 Flow Equivalent can be delivered with the Oxygen Direct system (through a patient circuit O2 tube). In an average-sized adult, 6.0 L/min O2 Flow Equivalent delivers approximately 40% FiO2.

Yes. Oxygen via bleed-in from an external low-pressure source is additive, and can be used in conjunction with the internal oxygen concentrator or external high-pressure source. If you are using the internal oxygen concentrator and want to add additional oxygen via bleed-in from an external, low- pressure source, leave the internal oxygen concentrator running (as shown on the Oxygen therapy screen) and then simply add the low pressure source to the back of VOCSN, and turn the oxygen source on.

No. Adding external, low-pressure oxygen will not affect ventilation delivery.

Please refer to the Comparable Ventilation Modes document, available by clicking here.

Yes. VOCSN offers High Flow therapy on devices with software version 4.06 and compatible hardware. To determine if your VOCSN has access to High Flow therapy, look at the “V” icon in the status bar.

  • Devices with High Flow therapy display a “V” icon with a white background. Leak+
  • Devices without High Flow therapy display a “V” icon with a blue background.Without Leak+
VOCSN devices with High Flow therapy offer the following Flow setting ranges:
  • When Patient Type is set to Adult, the Flow range is 15 to 60 L/min.
  • When Patient Type is set to Pediatric, the Flow range is 4 to 25 L/min.
For information on setting up High Flow therapy please refer to page 26 of the Clinical and Technical Manual, available at VentecLife.com/VOCSNmanual.

At minimum, all VOCSN devices provide leak compensation up to 75 L/min at 20 cmH2O. VOCSN devices with software version 4.06 and compatible hardware provide extended leak compensation up to 175 L/min @ 20 cmH2O. To determine if your VOCSN has access to the extended Leak+ performance, look at the “V” icon in the status bar.

  • Devices with Leak+ performance display a “V” icon with a white background. Leak+
  • Devices without Leak+ performance display a “V” icon with a blue background. Without Leak+

VOCSN has been tested and validated using the Ventec One-Circuit. The Ventec One-Circuit is available in several different circuit configurations, most of which can be ordered as adult or pediatric, and heated or non-heated:

  • Active
  • Passive
  • Valveless
  • Active with Oxygen
  • Passive with Oxygen

Yes. Refer to the Clinical and Technical Manual, page 191 for external power requirements, available at VentecLife. com/VOCSNmanual.

Approximately 13 hours. A separately available Quick Charger can be used to charge the external batteries in 5 hours.

VOCSN does not offer a stand-by mode.

Yes. The VOCSN touchscreen can still be easily navigated with gloves and typical personal protective equipment.

VOCSN may include all available therapies and all the features, or a subset. Depending on its configuration, VOCSN will be able to provide Ventilation, +Oxygen Concentration, +Cough, +Suction, and/or +Nebulizer therapy. It may also be able to provide oxygen from an external high-pressure source and FiO2 monitoring (+Pro configurations) or low-pressure oxygen (all configurations). The configuration name is based on the therapies VOCSN can provide. For example, the V+C configuration provides Ventilation+Cough therapies.

The configuration name is printed on the back of the device, and is also visible on the My VOCSN screen.
