Automated procedures and time saving workflow tools
Vital Capacity procedure
- Automated bag “squeeze and hold”
- Set PEEP to help sustain open lung 2,3
- Clinician-configured ventilation procedures
- Programmable steps for increasing and decreasing PEEP levels
Pause Gas Flow
Simplifies temporary circuit disconnects. One button temporarily stops all gas flows and suspends alarms, agent delivery and ventilation so you can place all your focus on the patient.
- Pause Gas feature helps prevent OR pollution
- Stops gas & agent flow and silences all alarms for up to 1 minute
Uncompromised Ventilation – Neonate to Adult
Low Tidal Volume delivery for Neonates:
- Tidal Volumes as low as 5 ml to the patient1
- Sampling flow down to 120 ml/min
- Lung Capacity and FRC
- Compliance Measurement and Spirometry
- Smart Agent Settings Design
- Simplified user interface for Neonate cases (ie. Step Inductions)
- Circuit Compliance Compensation ensures that what you set is what you get, precisely showing what is delivered to the patient and taking into account volume in the patient circuit.
- Monitors and responds to changes in the patient’s airway pressure or respiratory efforts up to 250 times per second.
- Precision volume and pressure delivery to the patient Y-piece, breath by breath, help reduce the challenges in managing neonatal and pediatric patients.
