Title
(EN) BREATHING ASSISTANCE APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL D'ASSISTANCE RESPIRATOIRE
Abstract
(EN)
A breathing assistance apparatus and method of controlling a breathing assistance apparatus is disclosed. Particularly, the breathing assistance apparatus is controlled such that it has a drying cycle to enable drying of the tubing that supplies gases to a user and prevent the harbouring of pathogens within the tube. The drying cycle is preferably operated automatically by internal controllers in the apparatus. However, it may be manually activated by pressing a button on the apparatus. The drying cycle is preferably activated at the end of a user’s treatment session.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil d'assistance respiratoire et un procédé de commande de celui-ci. Plus précisément, l'appareil d'assistance respiratoire est commandé de manière à comprendre un cycle de séchage permettant de sécher le tube fournissant des gaz à un utilisateur et empêchant des pathogènes de loger dans le tube. Le cycle de séchage est, de préférence, mis en oeuvre automatiquement au moyen d'unités de commande internes de l'appareil. Cependant, ce cycle peut être activé manuellement par pressage d'un bouton sur l'appareil. Le cycle de séchage est activé, de préférence, à la fin d'une session de traitement de l'utilisateur.
