The Travel Air® Impulsator® is a portable, self-contained, easy to use device that allows patients to benefit from TRUE-IPV® therapy at home. Designed specifically for non-continuous home care use, the Travel Air® is a pressure-limited, flow-interrupted, and time-cycled ventilator that delivers TRUE-IPV® therapy, a modality of mechanical ventilation.
The Travel Air® device delivers high-frequency percussive pulses between 60-500 pulses per minute. The High-Frequency pulses ramify throughout the airways and alveolar ducts, augmenting diffusive ventilation in the gas exchange regions of the lungs, allowing improved FRC, CO² removal, airway clearance, and lung recruitment.
During operation, the Travel Air® system supplies a continuous, dense aerosol mist of saline or sterile water, which is delivered into the lungs during therapeutic percussion, serving to reduce the adhesive and cohesive forces of retained airway secretions.
Percussionaire® recommends an annual Preventive Maintenance for each device. An annual PM consists of thorough cleaning, functional evaluation, and, if necessary, recalibration. Intervention by an unauthorized individual or repair maintenance facility will cause the immediate expiration of the clinical readiness of the device. Return the device to Henrotech or Percussionaire for repair or annual preventive maintenance.
