Dutch Ministry of Health also opts for Evone® by Ventinova from Eindhoven
Results of FCV®-equipped ventilation equipment appears promising

Eindhoven, 2 April 2020 – Ventinova Medical, a company based in Eindhoven, received good news today; this concerns a substantial order for the delivery of Evone®, an innovative ventilation device, equipped with the FCV® technology patented by Ventinova, which controls both the supply and the exhaust of air during mechanical ventilation. This is a global first.

New technology
The guiding principle for the design of Evone® was to develop a device that is as effective as possible and that prioritises the health and recovery of the patients. The company worked on this aspect for many years. Evone® is based on Ventinova’s FCV® ventilation technology. The significant clinical benefits of FCV® have been demonstrated in several international clinical trials in recent years. Simply put, this device results in a strongly improved oxygen transfer, because the lungs remain open more effectively during the so-called expiratory phase (‘exhalation phase’). This minimises lung damage as a result of ventilation and allows for a faster recovery. Evone® can be life-saving, particularly for patients in a critical condition.

Superior ventilation
Ventinova CEO Dirk van Asseldonk: ‘The market for ventilation equipment is incredibly dynamic at the moment. It is important not to lose sight of the crux of this application; at the moment, the crux is the ventilation of corona patients in ICUs, in critical condition. Due to the specific mechanism of the patented FCV® technology, Evone® allows us to offer superior ventilation for patients.

We need to remain cautions about the conclusions, but initial experiences gained in the ventilation of Covid-19 patients appear to confirm that these patients recover more quickly than with conventional ventilation

Just last night we received a report of a very impressive case: the patient was initially so ill that he normally would not even be able to receive ventilation and instead he would have required a cardiopulmonary bypass machine. This patient was able to come off the ventilator after just over six days of ventilation with Evone®!

An additional benefit is that ICU beds could be freed up more quickly. And the less time a patient spends on a ventilator, the better for the patient. This is an exceptionally positive development.’
