SU:M Series Aims to Help Successful Weaning
MEKICS understands a modern respiratory care system which demands not only basic ventilation modes but also advanced functions for successful weaning of patient and for supporting clinician as well.
SU:M Series system becomes complete with useful functions for successful and adaptive weaning function and assistant functions in acute respiratory care such as Hemo Dynamics (SpO2, EtCO2) and Lung mechanics. Additionally, HFV mode of SU:M Series could provide the possibility of a new successful story from premature to adult patient with or without Extra-Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO).
One of major topics of Conventional Ventilator in ICU is successful weaning. MEKICS understands that reducing patients Work of Breathing (WOB) and mismatching between patient and device are key factors for successful weaning in acute invasive ventilation. SU:M series have these core functions and performance. It has technical solution for reducing asynchrony too.
SU:M Series meets the essential requirements on performance, accuracy and high safety. The SU:M Series ventilator complys with:
The extendable strong configurations make SU:M Series highly competitive.
Standard : PACV, VACV, PSIMV, VSIMV, SPONT, O2Stream, tBi-level, PRVC, AutoVent
Options : CPR, TCPL-AC, TCPL-SIMV, PRVC-SIMV, AwPRV, HFV (SHFV, DHFV).
High Frequency Ventilation (HFV)
SU:M Series provides a high level of clinical performance for all the clinical demands from conventional to high frequency ventilation. MEKICS unique pneumatic technology extends the applicability of SU:M Series to HFV without any additional hardware apparatus.
Reliability and Easy maintenance
The pneumatic system of SU:M Series is MEKICS unique technology and it makes a basis for all the strong features such as unique High Frequency Ventilation and high reliability. Sohware based modes makes easier upgrade for customer demands. SU:M series provides easy maintenance process with PC viewer economically including spare parts.

1. Dual High Frequency Ventilation
MEKICS unique principle of HFV has a couple of clinical benefits. The first is that patient can be cared continu- ously even without replacing the breathing circuit between conventional mode and HFV mode. This strong benefit helps safe and easy care.
The second is Dual Phase High Frequency Ventilation (DHFV). It is a combined mode with CMV and HFV. The CMV phase of DHFV could be used to intend either intermittent lung expansion or intermittent exhalation under high frequency ventilation. The intermittent lung expansion works for insuVicient lung recruit process in HFV with low MAP. On the other hand, intermittent lung exhalation could have an eVect of improving insuVi- cient CO2 ventilation and get measured EtCO2 in HFV with high MAP.
AutoVent mode of SU:M Series is to induct successful weaning depending on patients lung condition and patient breathing eVort by adaptive reaction-controlled algorithm. AutoVent mode supports the optimal pressure controlled tidal volume with calculated respiration rate. We believe this mode is a possibly optimal solution to care patients changing lung condition continuously.
A patient aher surgery without any specific lung disease, the demand of patients breathing may change continuously. AutoVent mode could help clinician more concentrate on patient-care than setting-device.
3. SpO2, EtCO2 (Hemo Dynamics)
This option could provide information of metabolic-CO2 and SpO2 as the result of respiration. This information could be useful to a clinician for patient care without independent gas monitoring system and for reducing complete dependency on Arterial Blood Gas Analysis (ABGA). Especially, it is intended to provide more useful and comprehensive clinical information from this combination of CO2, SpO2 and flow information.
4. Smart Weaning
Asynchrony in SIMV is a major challenge for successful weaning process. The first mission is how to meet patients respiratory demand with a set of volume and respiration rate. The second is how not to interrupt patients breathing eVorts. In other words, it means how to avoid fighting.
The principle of smart weaning is to support minimum- pressure level and to allow over set-volume continuously as patients demand increases in inhalation phase.
The inspiratory time is extended to detect expiratory start point(Ex-sense) not to interrupt the patient exhalation eVort.
