Customer insights

“An intermediate range of inspiratory effort is associated with better outcomes for patients and might be a reasonable target for most patients.” — Dr. Irene Telias, University of Toronto


“The good thing about this mode is that because it is proportionate to the patient’s drive and effort, it is very unlikely that the ventilator will provide too much support – what we call over-assistance.” — Dr. Irene Telias, University of Toronto


“For me it would be a major step backwards if I didn’t have access to an Edi signal.” — Dr. Sten Borgstrom, MD. DEAA


“So we went from thinking that we had a patient who would be unable to breathe for the rest of his life and might not even survive intensive care, to a patient with a fully functional breathing pathway from the brain stem to the diaphragm. That patient was able to breathe unassisted and recovered, albeit with some paralysis.”— Dr. Sten Borgstrom, MD. DEAA
