General information

Lung’s Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) monitor

Model: ENLIGHT 2100

Brand: Timpel SA – Brazil

Manufactured: Brazil

Certificate: ISO, CE

Enlight 2100 ENLIGHT 2100 is a bedside Electrical Impedance Tomograph (EIT) that provides clear, real-time and intuitive images of the regional distribution of ventilation of neonatal, pediatric and adult patients, allowing the assessment of regional lung volume changes.
ENLIGHT applies a harmless electrical current through an electrode belt placed around the patient´s thorax, allowing the visualization of:

  • Asynchronies and asymmetries with the percentage of ventilation distribution, unveiling the patient´s lungs heterogeneities and unique physiological responses to mechanical ventilation;
  • The behavior of Tidal Variation and End Expiratory Lung Impedance in different Regions of Interest;
  • Airway Pressure, Flow and Volume curves and pulmonary mechanics parameters side by side withV entilation Map and Dynamic Image;
  • EIT data displayed according to patient´s positioning, with instantaneous visual feedback of each patient’s response to ventilation;
  • Asynchronies, such as Double Trigger and Reverse Trigger, and the Breath-Stacking volume in mL/Kg;
  • PEEP Titration Tool, with automatic detection of PEEP changes and real time calculation of compliance, regional and accumulated hyperdistension and collapse, in PCV and VCV modes;
  • Trends data from up to 48 hours, being possible to analyze and compare moments and better understand patient´s individual response to the treatment.

The electrodes are built into the electrode belts, leading to a very thin and flat surface. They are easy to apply, requires only a slight lateral tilt in patient’s positioning. Adult/Pediatric belts are covered with Addere, a breathable cover that has an embedded gel, allowing a gentle contact and use for up to 48 hours, with no need for extra contact agents. The Neonatal belt has a layer of breathable gel embedded, allowing a safe and gentle contact to the skin. ENLIGHT has its own Flow Sensor, therefore can be used in connection with all ventilators.
