Patent concerning a hospital lung ventilation unit

The department is structured so as to reduce the risk of contagion, for example from covid19.

The respirable gases administered to patients, via lung ventilators, come from distribution networks that are supplied outside the ward, in places where the gases are pumped into the networks by compressors or cylinders.

The gases exhaled by the patients are sucked and, through suction networks, conducted outside the ward in separate and confined places.

In the vicinity of the hospital beds, suction systems suck the ambient air, which, through other suction networks, are conducted outside the ward in a separate and confined place.

The functions of surveillance and monitoring of the clinical parameters of the patients, of regulation and setting of the operating parameters of the lung ventilators are replicated remotely in a control room, separate from the hospital ward.
In the control room, in addition to monitoring and regulating the lung ventilation of the patients, their video surveillance is also carried out.

Doctors and health workers are not constantly forced to crowd the ward, protected by bulky personal protective equipment, but even remotely they can profitably and accurately monitor, quickly consult and promptly take measures.

The set of measures adopted decreases the risk of contagion for those working in the lung ventilation departments and increases the quality of care that patients can receive.
