Philips Unveils Trilogy Evo Portable Vent at ERS 2018 in Paris

New portable ventilator builds on Philips respiratory clinical excellence to enhance transitional care coordination and collaboration

At the European Respiratory Society (ERS) International Congress 2018 in Paris, France (September 15-19), Royal Philips, will showcase the company’s growing portfolio of advanced connected care solutions designed to foster effective and efficient care for chronic respiratory and sleep conditions. During the show, Philips will also unveil its newest connected solution, Trilogy Evo, the only portable life support ventilator platform designed to stay with patients to provide consistent therapy and monitoring as they change care environments and when their condition changes.

Chronic conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary
Disease (COPD) can be difficult to manage due to complex care plans, large care
teams, and frequent readmissions.  Integrated with Care
, Philips’ sleep and respiratory care cloud-based
management system, Trilogy Evo will help to ease this burden by allowing physicians,
clinicians, and care providers to collaborate and coordinate care from hospital
to home by storing their patient prescription and therapy information in a
single secure location. 

“Worldwide, chronic conditions are on the rise, presenting continually growing care challenges. Time and again, we have seen the positive impact that connected care can have not only on patients but on the care teams that serve them,” said John Frank, Business Leader for Sleep and Respiratory Care at Philips. “With effective treatment options, chronic respiratory conditions can be managed effectively. Trilogy Evo is our next evolution of work in connected care solutions, making therapy management for chronic conditions easier and more efficient.”

Along with Trilogy Evo, Philips will showcase the latest
suite of integrated innovations in sleep and respiratory care including:

  • Care
    , Philips cloud-based patient management software
    solution that allows providers and clinicians to efficiently manage patient
    care across a single platform. Through its cloud-based solutions like Care
    Orchestrator, Philips enables the care of more than 8.5 million connected sleep
    and respiratory patients worldwide.
  • NightBalance Lunoa is the latest treatment for positional sleep
    apnea. The small, lightweight device worn in a belt around the chest uses
    gentle vibrations to help stop wearers from sleeping on their back. Over 73% of adults using the NightBalance Lunoa
    therapy reported a long-term improvement in the three most reported positional
    sleep apnea symptoms. [2]
  • SmartSleep,
    the world’s first and only clinically proven wearable solution for consumers to
    improve deep sleep quality for people who do not get enough sleep due to

    feeling less tired during the day. [3] Connectivity with the Smart Sleep mobile
    application offers users with direct access to sleep data and analysis.

    movement and the ability to sleep in any position. Users and technicians can
    easily swap cushions between DreamWear mask frames. CPAP users reported
    being more satisfied with fit and comfort of the DreamWear Full face mask over
    other leading full face masks. [4]
  • DreamStation
    , At half the size of our System One and DreamStation platforms,
    DreamStation Go offers the same therapy and comfort features used by over 5
    million CPAP users and 1/3 components to pack than its closest competitors.
