Demo IPS and IBO

Instructions for use IPS and IBO

Place the IBO (Inflatable Board) on the bed.

Position the flexible part of the IBO on the operating table.

Place the patient on the IBO in a supine position.

Make sure the entire trunk (thorax and abdomen) is on the IBO.

Spread the patient’s arms.

Stick the IPS (Inflatable Prone Support) on the patient with the skeleton (rib lattice and pelvic comb) as a reference.

The tubes of the cushions are derived to the navel, with the valves in the direction of the IBO valve.

Stick the ‘adhesive side strips’ tightly on the patient’s body.

Place the patient’s arms along the body, the arm along the lifting side over the tubes.

Cross the ankle from the lifting side over the ankle of the tilting side.

Inflate the IBO.

With the help of the Hummingbird, the IBO is inflated.

Inflating the IBO puts the patient in a lateral position.

Gently roll the patient into the prone position.

Hang the IBO on a hook; it will automatically deflate.

Position the patient.

Place the patient’s arms on the armrests and loosen the adhesive strips from the side.

Inflate up the thorax cushion.

Do this with extra attention to the position of the patient’s neck.

Stop inflating when the cushion is filled to the maximum. You’ll hear a whistle.

Inflate the pelvic cushion.

Stop inflating when the cushion is filled to the maximum. You’ll hear a whistle.

Inflating the IPS cushions puts the patient’s body in the prone position with free-hanging abdomen.

Deflate and inflate.

Use the Hummingbird’s horn to let off pressure if desired. Use the nose of the Hummingbird to inflate the IPS if necessary.

After the patient is turned back to the supine position, the tubes may be cut to deflate the IPS.

Demo IPV and IBO

Instructions for use IPV and IBO

patient-on-the-inflatable-board

Slide the IBO under the patient in supine position.

Make sure that the entire trunk (thorax and abdomen) is on the IBO.

 

patient-with-thorax-cover-on-body

Spread the patient’s arms.

Place the thorax cover on the patient. Use the skeleton as a reference:

  • The cover moves about 3 centimeters while turning. Therefore, move the cover a few centimeters in the tilt direction: align the line with the arrow of the correct tilt direction with the patient’s center line.
  • The cross of the tilt line must lie exactly on the xyphoid.

First attach the side strip of the tilt line (2a) to the patient’s body. Then attach the other side strip (2b). Make sure that the cover lies tightly over the patient’s body.

patient-with-covers-on-body

Place the pelvic cover on the patient. Use the skeleton as a reference:

  • Select the line with the arrow in the tilt direction and place that line on the centerline of the patient.
  • The cross of the tilt line must lie exactly on the pubic symphysis.

First, attach the side strip of the tilt side (3a) on the patient’s body. Then stick the other side strip (3b). Make sure that the cover lies tightly over the patient’s body.

patient-with-cover-and-cushions-on-body

Stick the cushions in the middle of the covers.

The tubes of the cushions are placed next to the patient on the tilt side.

Attach the ‘side adhesive strips’ of the cushion tightly to the patient’s body. Start with the tape at the tilting side (4a – 4b – 4c – 4d).

patient-with-arrows-pointing-to-the-shoulder-strips-and-crossed-legs

Place the patient’s arm over the tubes, next to the body.

Now attach the shoulder strips (5a & 5b) of the thoracic cushion.

Cross the ankle from the lilting side over the ankle of the tilting side (5c).

person-inflating-the-inflatable-board-with-patient-on-it

Inflate the IBO by using the Hummingbird. Inflating the IBO gradually puts the patient in a lateral position.

Stop inflating from time to time to slide the IBO to the side so that the patient tilts in the middle of the bed.

Gently roll the patient into prone position. Hang the IBO on a hook; it automatically deflates.

instructions-how-to-stop-inflating-the-cushion

Loosen the 10 side strips of the cover and cushions and position the patient’s arms.

First, inflate the thoracic cushion. Do this with special attention to the position of the patient’s neck. Then inflate the pelvic cushion.

Stop inflating when the cushions are filled to the maximum. You will hear a whistle.

Use the nose of the Hummingbird to inflate the IPV if necessary.

Use the Hummingbird’s horn to deflate the IPV cushion and release pressure if desired.
