Instruction manual IPS and IBO

Positon the IBO on the bed with the valve at the tilting side.

The flexible end of the IBO must be positioned onto the operating table.

Place the patient on the IBO in the supine position.

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

Spread the patient’s arms.

Stick the IPS or IPV (Inflatable Prone Support) on the patient with the skeleton (rib grid and pelvic crest) as a reference.

The tubes of the pillows are diverted to the navel.

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

Place the inflation tubes and valves on the bed next to the patient.

Place the patient’s arm over the tubing.

Cross the patient’s ankles over each other.

Inflate the IBO.

By using the Hummingbird, the IBO starts to inflate.

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 automatically deflates within 10 minutes.

Position the patient.

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

Inflate the thoracic pillow.

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

Inflating the IPS or IPV thoracic pillow puts the patient’s body in the prone position with the abdomen suspended freely.

Inflate the pelvic pillow.

Stop inflation when the pillows are fully filled. You will hear a whistle signal.

Use the Hummingbird’s horn to deflate the IPS or IPV pillows and regulate the pressure.
