Inolivent-6 (2013 – …)
This latest version of our liquid ventilator was developed with a federal grant from NSERC / CIHR (Canada) and a provincial grant from MDEIE (Quebec). Inolivent-6 is a copy of Inolivent-5 but with technological maturations. Hence, it includes the latest advances in the field of liquid ventilation, including control algorithms pressure, monitoring algorithms and dedicated components (unsteady flow meter, …). Inolivent-6, is currently being tested in an animal model of severe meconium aspiration to validate the effectiveness of the lung lavage (addressing a disease occurring in intensive care néonataux but also a model of respiratory distress). The main outcome of this study will be to validate the total liquid ventilation from the lung lavage to the weaning.
