You will learn how to unlock Biphasic Cuirass Ventilation’s full potential, from using it as a standalone device to learning how to skillfully use it to augment the use of other therapeutic modalities, such as a high-flow nasal cannula or positive pressure ventilator.

Dr. Zamir Hayek

Dr. Zamir Hayek set out to design the ideal ventilator that would be a clinical tool to assist nearly anyone. This goal was achieved with the Hayek RTX ventilator. In doing so, he introduced a new and powerful pulmonary treatment concept, Biphasic Cuirass Ventilation (BCV). 

Mechanical assistance of ventilation is frequently provided with an invasive airway and positive pressure breath delivery. Both fraught with significant risk and side effects, these methods of ventilation should be the last resort in meeting the needs of patients. Many patients needing ventilator support can also have their needs met without the artificial airway for connection to the ventilator and can be supported non-invasively with facial or mask type interfaces. These, although useful, have important limitations. Breath delivery is still positive pressure and patients are frequently intolerant. 

The invention and creation of the RTX reflects Dr. Zamir Hayek's vision of the ideal ventilator. The therapies provided with BCV offer significant advantages over positive pressure. This unique device is an important therapeutic tool that can benefit multiple organ systems, particularly in this time when positive pressure appears to be a catalyst for worsening lung disease.

Learn why BCV is the future 

of respiratory care!

Benefits of BCV include: 

1) BCV improves PaO2/FiO2 ratio. 

2) BCV supports better oxygenation and less injury to the lungs.

3) BCV supports cardiac function.

4) BCV recruits the lungs safely without compromising cardiac output. 

Participants will also gain insight into: 

1) The physiology of BCV

2) How to use the Hayek RTX

3) How to apply the cuirass shells

4) How to navigate between ventilatory and secretion clearance options

5) And, how to improve patient outcomes through skilled use of this amazing lung tool!
