Today, Philips Respironics offers a broad range of clinically proven solutions intended to support breathing in the intensive care, sub-acute, and home care settings. Developed to meet the needs of a wide range of patients, Trilogy100 offers both volume- and pressure-control ventilation for adult and pediatric use with features intended to help caregivers and clinicians administer patient care in the home and alternative care settings such as skilled nursing facilities. A growth area, the number of home ventilator-dependent patients has risen in the 1980s and 1990s -- a result of increased survival rates of critically ill patients and technological advances, such as noninvasive ventilation, which can prolong and improve quality of life.(1)

"When developing the Trilogy100 ventilator, we focused on areas for clinicians and caregivers that are most important in delivering home respiratory care -- ease of use, versatility and portability," explains John Frank, vice president and general manager, Home Respiratory Care, for Philips Home Healthcare Solutions. "The integration of the three makes Trilogy100 a significant advancement in home respiratory care."

Trilogy100 features Respironics' proven bi-level technology with advanced leak compensation, enabling the patient to receive more types of therapy from a single device. The system streamlines the ventilation process with interchangeable active and passive exhalation ports and the flexibility to choose the best available circuit and patient interface. Trilogy100 can accommodate a mask, mouthpiece or tracheostomy. The portable ventilator also can eliminate cumbersome valves and tubing by utilizing the passive circuit with Whisper Swivel II for invasive ventilation.

For patient mobility, the compact design includes detachable, internal, and external power options, with up to 6 hours of battery capacity. Patients can be as active as possible while using the ventilator to support their breathing.

The Trilogy100 ventilator's intuitive design allows for quick access to device settings and patient information. The easy-to-read, easy-to-navigate screens and clear, concise directions offer simplified patient views. In addition, optional DirectView patient data management software allows clinicians to more efficiently manage ventilation therapy with access to full patient information, including waveforms, trends, usage patterns, and summary statistics.

The Trilogy100 life-support ventilator is backed by Philips Respironics service and support programs, including a 24/7 call center staffed with clinical and technical specialists, in-depth ventilation workshops, and educational training resources.
