Effective, full ventilation of a patient with an obstructed upper airway
Saving lives in CICO situations
Connection for side-stream capnometry (this functionality is not available in the USA)
Ventrain: One ventilator, many options
The EVA® technology (which is the basic form of FCV® as applied by Evone, creates active expiration by suction. This shortens expiration time, increases the achievable minute volume and reduces the risk on air trapping and associated risks on barotrauma and circulatory collapse, when compared to other small lumen ventilation techniques in obstructed airways (e.g. jet ventilation). Ventrain is a single use ventilation device, dedicated to manage and prevent difficult or challenging airway situations. Ventrain allows adequate ventilation in any patient (pediatrics emergency only), in combination with any narrow bore lumen (e.g. transtracheal catheter Cricath, airway exchange catheter, rigid bronchoscope, etc.) via any route of airway access (oral, nasal, FONA). It is easy in use as inspiration, supplying O2 and expiration, removing CO2, are initiated by using just a thumb. The only requirement is O2 from a high-pressure gas source, with a pressure compensated flow meter.
- Ventrain is the only ventilation device that provides full ventilation in an obstructed airway situation, without the risk on air trapping and barotrauma
- Saving lives in CICO situations
- Ventrain creates active expiration by suction

Ventrain is the solution in life-threatening situations to establish rapid re-oxygenation via a small bore lumen. The type of lumen and route of airway access (oral, FONA by needle cricothryotomy or by scalpel bougie technique) is not of interest as long as the lumen has a Luer connector. The ventilation provided by Ventrain has several advantages: it enables minimal invasive ventilation through a small bore tube of < 3 mm ID, it provides full ventilation: oxygenation and CO2 removal and it allows side-stream capnometry.
Ventrain, in combination with Tritube, can especially be useful during ENT/laryngeal surgery. This combination offers several new surgical options for treatment. Our ventilation techniques FCV® and EVA®* enable full ventilation through small bore lumen, providing adequate ventilation even in cases involving critically obstructed airways. In comparison to jet ventilation, it strongly reduces the risk on barotrauma.
During upper airway surgery, ventilation may be challenging: A clear and hygienic surgical exposure is demanded and any potential sudden airway obstruction and aspiration needs to be handled. In combination with Ventrain as the ventilator, Tritube fulflls these needs. Tritube’s ultrathin OD of only 4.4 mm in combination with a sealed airway preventing turbulences of air nearby the surgical site, creates a large surgical exposure.
In case of Lung Isolation procedures Ventrain provides effective additional ventilation of the non-dependent lung in order to prevent or rapidly overcome cases of hypoxemia. The flow-based inspiration and suction-supported expiration enable inspiration and expiration at any speed desired with very small, but effective tidal volumes ensuring the non-dependent lung remains collapsed. Therefore, there is no delay or postponement of surgery. If required, the active expiration can also initiate a more effective and faster collapse.
