  • Notas adicionales en la data
    Ensure patients assisted by the Newport ™ HT70 and HT70 Plus ventilators are properly monitored by trained nurses / caregivers as described in the Operator's Manual. Descriptions include: A patient connected to a ventilator requires constant attention from trained nurses / caregivers to the patient's condition. Always have a power supply and alternate ventilation means available when the fan is in use in the event of a mechanical or system problem. Always use appropriate monitors to ensure sufficient oxygenation and ventilation (such as a pulse oximeter and / or capnograph) when the Newport ™ HT70 or HT70 Plus ventilator is in use on a patient. If possible, use the remote nurse alarm call cord (CBL3223 or 10104494) to project the ventilator alarm states out of the patient's room. This alarm will be issued even with an unexpected restart. Refer to the Operator's Manual or call Technical Support for more information about this accessory.
