The Equation of Motion screen helps you to explain the science behind breath patterns in an easy-to-follow, color-coded format. You can even pause to examine the last breath.

For example, during the progression of a spontaneous or an assisted breath, you can follow the contributions that a patient’s resistance and compliance have on the work of breathing.

The RespiSim® software program controls the movement of the ASL 5000™ piston to create breathing patterns based on the Equation of Motion, which is:

Pmus + Pvent = Vt/C +R x flow
