This adjustable PEEP valve prevents the exhalation pressure from dropping below a pre-determined value. The magnet is at an adjustable distance from a movable check valve. The magnetic field holds the check valve closed. During exhalation, pressure on the check valve exceeds the strength of the magnetic field and forces the valve open to allow the exhalation. As pressure drops at the end of exhalation, the valve closes again. This maintains the end expiratory pressure at the PEEP setting.
- PEEP adjustments range from 3 to 20cm H2O pressure. (maximum PEEP can carry ± 2cm H2O, per device.)
- Lightweight, transparent plastic allows visual inspection of function.
- Magnetic PEEP valve is easy to operate; effective regardless of position.
- Designed for use with ventilators, anesthesia machines, resuscitators and other systems where PEEP or CPAP is required.
