Title
(EN) DEVICE FOR SUPPORTIVE RESPIRATION OF A LIVING BEING AND COMPUTER PROGRAM
Abstract
(EN)

The invention relates to a device (1) for supportive respiration of a living being (3), said device having a sensor arrangement, a programmable control unit (10) and an air conveyance unit (6), which is controllable by the control unit (10). The sensor arrangement has a pressure sensor (9) and an air flow sensor (11), which are designed for the temporally successive detection of respiratory pressure values and respiratory air flow values of the living being (3). The programmable control unit (10) is designed to evaluate respiratory air pressure profiles and respiratory air flow profiles formed from the temporally successive respiratory pressure values and respiratory air flow values detected by the sensor arrangement In order to provide respiration for the living being (3) which is in particular comfortable and individually adapted to the current needs of the living being (3), according to the invention the programmable control unit (10) is designed to detect unsuccessful respiratory movements of the living being (3) and the cause thereof on the basis of characteristic features of the respiratory pressure profiles and/or the respiratory air flow profiles. The invention furthermore relates to a computer program having program code means, designed to carry out a method for supportive respiration of a living being (3) by means of a respirator device (1) when the computer program is executed on a computer unit of the respirator device (1).
