Frostfire- The short answer is no. The SAVEe has a fixed rate of 10 breaths a min with no ability to adjust settings, including no ability to give PEEP. Frequently, COVID patients are significantly hypoxic and require high levels of PEEP to maintain reasonable oxygenation. We looked at this question and concluded that the SAVe 1 basically has almost no role in treating critical COVID patients. If you want more information PM me.
