Control Without Complexity
1 Device, 2 Therapies
Designed with clinicians and patients in mind, the AquaVENT® FD140i dual gas flow driver delivers safe and effective High Flow Oxygen Therapy (HFOT) and Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapies for Neonatal, Paediatric and Adult patients.
Compared to an invasive ventilator delivering non-invasive therapies, the AquaVENT® FD140i is:
Clear visibility with a 7-inch multicolour screen with high resolution to aid remote visibility.
Six modes for CPAP, CPAP Paediatric, CPAP Helmet, Bubble PAP, High Flow Oxygen Therapy and POINT®.
Precise patient-centric parameters with accurate control of flow and oxygen in single unit incremental controls.
Extended battery life for a minimum of 60 minutes with improved colour-coded battery status indicator.
Visual breath by breath performance.
Enhanced alarm features with visual and audible 2-tier priority alarms.
The Perfect Alternative
It is widely recognised that prolonged ventilatory support is associated with poor clinical outcomes and that weaning should be considered as early as possible in the course of mechanical ventilation.
Suitable for adult, neonatal and paediatric patients, AquaVENT® FD140i can become an integral part of your weaning protocol, providing an alternative option to using an invasive ventilator to deliver non-invasive therapies.
Control Without Complexity
5 Simple Steps
In only 5 simple steps your patient will be receiving the prescribed level of CPAP or High Flow Oxygen Therapy from AquaVENT® FD140i.
The transition between therapies for escalation, de-escalation or for rest periods is just as straightforward.
The AquaVENT® FD140 is a flow driver for humidified high flow oxygen therapy and CPAP therapy for adults and paediatrics delivered by mask or helmet.

Face Mask CPAP Mode
The flow provided at the respiratory gas outlet is constant and user-adjustable. The flow range covers the normal range for the CPAP application.
Breathing Circuit Setup – CPAP – face mask – heated
CPAP or Paed CPAP with face mask, heated
An active humidifier must be integrated in the heated CPAP breathing circuit. Note To prevent water from the humidifier, which collects during operation, from entering the AquaVENT® FD140, the active humidifier should be placed at a level below that of the AquaVENT® FD140. Note When removing the active humidifier, first disconnect the tube from the AquaVENT® FD140 to prevent water from the humidifier from entering the AquaVENT® FD140.
Assemble the breathing circuit as shown in the following diagram:
Breathing Circuit Setup – CPAP – face mask – unheated
CPAP or Paed CPAP with face mask, unheated
Connect the breathing circuit as shown in the following diagram:
Paed CPAP mode
The flow provided at the respiratory gas outlet is constant and user-adjustable. The maximum flow in this mode is 70 l/min.
For Breathing Circuit Setup – please see above under “Breathing Circuit Setup – CPAP – face mask – heated/unheated”
Helmet (Hood) CPAP mode
The flow provided at the respiratory gas outlet is constant and user-adjustable. The flow range matches the range required for helmet CPAP. For more information, please refer to chapter 5.5.4 Flow adjustment. The nebuliser is completely deactivated in the helmet CPAP mode.
Breathing Circuit Setup – CPAP – Helmet (Hood)
The AquaVENT® FD140 supports non-invasive ventilation by means of a CPAP helmet. Connect the CPAP helmet to the AquaVent FD140 as shown below:
Observe all instructions provided by the manufacturer
of the accessories.
Be sure to adjust the required flow according to the
instructions provided by the manufacturer of the CPAP
helmet to avoid accidental CO2 rebreathing.
Depending on their design, CPAP helmets may require
a specific minimum pressure when applied on a
When using CPAP helmets with hypercapnic patients,
close monitoring is recommended for adjustment of the
required flow and to avoid CO2 rebreathing.
The approved CPAP helmets are specified in chapter 10.2 Accessories.
Please refer to chapter 1.1 About this manual for details.
High Flow Oxygen Therapy (HFOT) mode
The AquaVENT® FD140 is the flow source for high flow oxygen therapy. The flow range is designed for use with nasal canulae from Armstrong. For more information, please refer to chapter 5.5.4 Flow adjustment.
Breathing Circuit Setup – HFOT
The AquaVENT® FD140 can be used as a flow generator for High Flow Oxygen Therapy in the HFOT mode.
The nasal cannula is connected to the breathing circuit in close proximity to the patient. The breathing circuit is basically identical with the illustration in chapter 4.6.
Be sure to adjust the required flow according to the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the nasal cannula to avoid accidental pressure peaks.
