Jay J Schnitzer, John E Thompson: Microprocessor-controlled ventilator system and methods. Children s Medical Center Corporation, The General Hospital Corporation, Lappin & Kusmer, December 2, 1997: US05692497 (165 worldwide citation)

A microprocessor controlled ventilator controls a patient's breathing selectively. In a preferred aspect, the ventilator utilizes intratracheal pulmonary ventilation and a reverse thrust catheter to provide all patient inspiration. The microprocessor connects to a pneumatic subsystem which includes ...
