Clinical Trial: Effectiveness of Infinity Acute Care System
Clinical trial: Evaluate safety and effectiveness of the Infinity Acute Care System Workstation Neonatal Care Babylog VN500 device in high-frequency oscillatory ventilation mode in extremely low birth weight neonates (DOVE)
Primary investigator: Dr. Kaegi
Research coordinator: Melissa Brown
About this trial.
This study will evaluate the Infinity Acute Care System Workstation Neonatal Care Babylog VN500 — an investigational device — in the high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) mode. While a standard ventilator delivers a normal volume of air in each breath, at a regular breath rate of about 30 to 60 breaths per minute, an HFOV provides hundreds of tiny breaths per minute. HFOV devices are believed to be gentler on the lungs, making it easier for the lungs to expand evenly. The Babylog VN500 ventilator is FDA approved for use in babies, but not in the HFOV mode.
