The PORTEX EZPAP® positive airway pressure system by Smiths Medical is used to expand the lungs by increasing Functional Residue Capacity (FRC). Increasing FRC has been found to contribute to the prevention and reversal of atelectasis.
When incentive spirometry alone won't open patient's airways, expand your options with EzPAP®. It makes providing positive airway pressure positively easy. Simply connect to a flow meter (wall air or O2 for enhanced FiO2), adjust 5-15 lpm, and instruct the patient to breathe normally through the mouthpiece or mask. Just a few minutes of therapy, as needed - not for hours at a time.
EzPAP® features a pressure port for connection to a gauge (recommended for initial use with each patient), and a standard 22 mm OD fitting to accommodate a mouthpiece or 3 mask options. The EzPAP® Positive Airway Pressure System includes the lung expansion device, mouthpiece, pressure port cap, and 7 feet of tubing.
