Simple, Smart Design for Better Breathing
The NIOV helps deliver more air and oxygen to the patient’s lungs, reducing shortness of breath and improving the exchange of CO2 and oxygen in the lungs. As a result, less effort is required to breathe and patients feel relief. Users can adjust the settings to one of three activity levels as needed:
With an internal rechargeable battery that lasts for about four hours, this device provides freedom for users and helps them stay fully engaged with life.
Use Cases for the NIOV
The NIOV has been used successfully for patients with COPD, restrictive lung conditions, ALS, and lung transplants. These devices are used in a wide variety of settings:
- General medical/surgical units
- Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
- Pulmonary Rehabilitation
- Emergency Services (ER)
- Long Term Acute Care (LTAC)
- Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU)
In clinical studies, the NIOV is associated with remarkable increases in exercise endurance and oxygen saturation. Significant reduction in Borg Dyspnea Scale and accessory respiratory muscle activation have also been noted.
