Adding V̇-Com™ to a patient’s therapy is like adding Training Wheels for CPAP™. This simple device can mean the difference between your patient “giving up” or continuing their lifesaving PAP treatment.
Within minutes, a respiratory therapist can show a patient what the PAP pressure feels like with and without the V̇-Com™ device inline. This feedback mechanism allows them to better understand how their airflow should feel.
As you know, comfort equals adherence and adherence equals better treatment outcomes.
Indications for use:
This device is intended for single patient use in noninvasive breathing circuits to provide comfort to patients on CPAP, APAP, and bi-level PAP therapy.

Single patient use. Do not attempt to sterilize. Use cleaning instructions below. Before each use visually i.nspect the V-Com™ device to ensure airflow path is not obstructed. Replace V-Com™ if signs of wear are present.
Do not place the V-Com™ device in an active breathing circuit as this could possibly affect algorithms for auto-titration and respiratory event detection. Always turn flow-generating device off first, place V-Com™ device in the breathing circuit, and then turn flow-generating device back on.
V-Com™ affects inspiratory PAP more than expiratory PAP which may decrease pressure support and tidal volume during NIV therapy. V-Com™ has not been tested in adaptive servo ventilation and average volume-adjusted pressure support breathing circuits.
Wash with soap (e.g., Liqu.id dish soap) and water inserting a small, bristled brush in both ends of the V-Com™ device to penetrate and clean the complete airflow path. Twist the brush several times. Rinse with clean water and let air dry. Inspect for any damage orresidue. If seen, reclean or replace.
