Changing care environments can be a burden for patients with conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Complex care plans, frequent readmissions and different caregivers make the disease difficult to manage. With Sensirion’s SFM3xxx flow platform, the handling of versatile ventilation devices for home care, intensive care, newborns and adults is facilitated for both hospital staff and patients. This enables easier adaptation to a changed environment.

Global leaders in healthcare technology are taking notice and adopting Sensirion’s SFM3xxx technology in their industry-leading respiratory solutions. Philips’ Trilogy Evo is the only portable life support ventilator platform designed to stay with patients to provide consistent therapy and monitoring as they change care environments (in hospital, at home or on the road) and when their condition changes. The global leader in health technology is setting new standards with the solution, offering features to treat chronic and critical patients in a variety of settings. The new ventilator supports both non-invasive and invasive ventilation with added sensitivity for a wide range of adult and pediatric patients.

Both the active flow circuit and the dual limb circuit make use of Sensirion’s proximal flow sensor that come in two sizes tailored to the needs of adults and pediatrics/infants. The autoclavable and single-use SFM3300 and SFM3400 sensors are accurate, robust and fully calibrated and therefore the first choice for proximal flow measurement. The internal flow control unit of Trilogy Evo relies on yet another Sensirion sensor, the SFM3200. The special design of its flow channel results in a very low pressure drop through the flow body of the sensor, making it the ideal choice for medical ventilation. The interaction of Philips’ ventilator with Sensirion’s sensors enables coordinated care in a dynamic environment.
