Timpel Enlight 1800 is a novel, non invasive and radiation-free equipment for bedside monitoring of the lung in intensive care units, operating rooms, or pulmonary labs. Providing real-time and intuitive images of ventilation distribution within the lung, it allows prompt diagnosis of harmful lung heterogeneities, like lung collapse, lung overdistension, or asynchronous lung filling. A careful assessment of the potential to reverse lung collapse can be easily obtained. It also allows the quick diagnosis of a life-threatening pneumothorax, a selective intubation, or an excessive tidal volume.
Timpel Enlight 1800 is based on Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) technology, in which cross sectional images of the thoracic/lung resistivity are inferred from electrical measurements performed on the thoracic skin, at high sampling rates.
Timpel Enlight 1800 combines an ergonomic electrode belt with a disposable patient interface, a high-end electronic system for image generation, and sophisticated algorithms for physiological interpretation and diagnosis. This technology can be embodied in standalone devices or embedded as a module into other medical devices, such as patient monitors or ventilators.
Timpel Enlight 1800 is an operator-independent technology, which enhances the diagnostic capabilities of intensivists at the bedside, helping them to:
- individualize patient care,
- protect the lung, and
- prevent complications during mechanical ventilation.
