Vapotherm® Releases Next Generation of Capital Unit: Precision Flow Hi-VNI™ System

Vapotherm, Inc. (NYSE: VAPO), a global medical technology company focused on the development and commercialization of its proprietary Hi-VNI® Technology products that are used to treat patients of all ages suffering from respiratory distress, today announced the release of the next generation of its capital unit: the Precision Flow Hi-VNI system. For this generation of the Precision Flow® system, both the hardware and software have been updated to improve reliability, and to comply with the EMC 4th Edition requirements for medical devices, IEC 60601-1-2:2014.

As with all the other models of the Precision Flow system, this generation provides Hi-VNI Technology, the innovation that delivers Mask-Free NIV™ for spontaneously breathing patients. “We’re excited to offer this next generation of the Precision Flow system to our customers,” said Joe Army, CEO. “We remain dedicated to continuous improvement in the products and services we offer our customers and patients and these improvements deliver on that commitment.”

In 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted the Precision Flow Hi-VNI system a new product category and product code (QAV). The FDA also granted an expanded indication for the system that states it may be used to augment breathing of spontaneously breathing patients suffering from respiratory distress in a hospital setting. This patient population is similar to that treated by other forms of non-invasive ventilation, making the Precision Flow Hi-VNI system a viable alternative to Non-invasive Positive Pressure Ventilation (NiPPV) for most patients.

Note: Hi-VNI® Technology is mask-free noninvasive ventilation for spontaneously breathing patients and a front-line tool for relieving respiratory distress—including hypercapnia, hypoxemia, and dyspnea. It allows for the fast, safe treatment of undifferentiated respiratory distress with one simple tool. Hi-VNI Technology’s mask-free interface delivers optimally conditioned breathing gases, making it comfortable for patients and reducing the risks and care complexities associated with mask therapies. While being treated, patients can talk, eat, drink and take medication.
