ventec life systems
Ventec Life Systems is redefining respiratory care to improve patient outcomes and reduce caregiver challenges in the hospital and home. Ventec’s leading product, VOCSN, seamlessly integrates five separate devices including a ventilator, oxygen concentrator, cough assist, suction, and nebulizer into one unified respiratory system. VOCSN is the only device that integrates all five therapies and qualifies as a Multi-Function Ventilator under HCPCS Code E0467, including invasive, non-invasive, or mouthpiece ventilation and works from hospital to home and for patients >5kg
VOCSN Multi-Function Ventilator
VOCSN seamlessly integrates five separate devices including a ventilator, oxygen concentrator, cough assist, suction, and nebulizer into one unified respiratory system.
HCPCS Code E0467
VOCSN Multi-Function Ventilator is reimbursed using HCPCS Code E0467 and is defined as a single device that integrates a ventilator, portable oxygen concentrator, cough stimulator, suction, and nebulizer, which traditionally requires a separate piece of equipment for each therapy.
On May 29, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) updated its policy for HCPCS code E0467 (Multi-Function Ventilator) that makes virtually any ventilator patient VOCSN eligible regardless of their device billing history or through the CMS upgrade option, thus paving the way for increased access to integrated respiratory care for ventilator users. Additionally 46 State Medicaid Programs have opened E0467 as have multiple national and regional commercial payers.
By unifying ventilation, cough, and suction into one system, it now takes seconds instead of minutes to administer cough therapy with Touch Button Cough™. The Ventec One-Circuit™ features a patent pending high flow valve design, allowing patients to use the same circuit for ventilation and cough. Using the Cough + Suction feature, the suction is activated during the cough therapy to clear secretions. Patients using invasive ventilation can use the Secretion Trap™ to easily clear secretions from the circuit. Once the set number of cough cycles is complete, ventilation automatically resumes.
Touch Button Cough™: The VOCSN cough is activated with the touch of a button to make airway clearance easy. Patients remain connected to the ventilator at all times, and there is no need to disconnect circuits between uses. The system is designed to reduce the gaps in ventilation, decrease the risk of patient misconnection, and minimize exposure to the patient’s airway.
VOCSN can deliver the equivalent of 6 L/min of oxygen using the onboard internal oxygen concentrator.
The Oxygen Direct™ system uses an independent oxygen tube inside the circuit. This enables oxygen to be delivered directly to the patient in pulse-dose mode during the beginning part of the breath, precisely when the patient needs oxygen most.
The oxygen system is up to three times more efficient than stationary concentrators. This significantly decreases the size of the oxygen concentrator and maximizes battery life. Most importantly, it makes traveling and using oxygen easier.
