Demo IPS and IBO

Instructions for use IPS and IBO

Place the IBO (Inflatable Board) on the bed.

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

Place the patient on the IBO in a back position.

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

Spread the patient’s arms.

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

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

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

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

Cross the ankle from the tilside over the ankle of the tilt side.

Blow up the IBO.

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

Blowing up the IBO puts the patient in a side position.

Gently roll the patient into a tummy position.

Hang the IBO on a hook; it will automatically deflate within 10 minutes.

Position the patient.

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

Blow up the thorax pillow.

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

Stop blowing up when the pillow is filled to the maximum. You’re supposed to hear a whistle.

Blow up the pelvic pillow.

Stop blowing up when the pillows are filled to the maximum. You’re supposed to hear a whistle.

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

Let go and blow up.

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

After the patient is turned back on the back, the hoses may be cut to deflate the IPS/IPV.

Demo IPV and IBO

Instructions for use IPV and IBO

Slide the IBO under the patient in supine position.

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

Slide the IBO to the side where the white valve is located, away from the tilt direction.

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.

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.

Stick the cushions in the middle of the covers.

Derive the tubes of the L-cushions to the umbilicus, with the valves in the direction of the IBO valve. The tubes of the XL 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).

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

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

Cross the ankle from the tilt side over the ankle of the turning side (5c).

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.

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 signal.

Inflate and deflate.

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.
