Philips VX850 critical care ventilator is a comprehensive ICU solution that leverages data integration. The VX850 is designed to address weaning challenges with VentAssist clinical decision support; deliver lung protective ventilation; offer remote control for infection prevention, and interoperability with Philips IntelliVue patient monitors to support workflows.

Display can be mounted outside patient room
Infection prevention and control

Infection prevention and control

Large user interface can be mounted outside of the patient’s room for treating patients in strict isolation. This allows the clinician to view the ventilator monitors and alarms, adjust ventilation and alarm settings, and make timely critical care interventions. Additionally, use of high-efficiency inspiratory/expiratory filters (required to connect the patient circuit) provide 99.9% bacterial and viral filtration efficiency and prevent cross contamination.
Supporting you in knowing when to wean
Weaning support

Weaning support

VentAssist™ Clinical Decision Support, based on neural network machine learning, provides advice based upon changing patient conditions to help with timely liberation from invasive ventilation.
Automated calculations support lung protection efforts
Lung protective ventilation

Lung protective ventilation

Automated calculation of ml/kg and breath-to-breath calculation of dynamic plateau pressure without the need of an inspiratory hold maneuver facilitates lung protective monitoring aimed at reducing ventilator induced lung injury.
Mobile alarming and patient monitoring integration
Clinical workflow and monitoring optimization

Clinical workflow and monitoring optimization

Integration with Philips patient monitors facilitates 72 hours data trending for effective patient management. Mobile alarms distributed to PIC-iX/CareEvent can help support critical care event response time.
