Ventilator Specifications

Ventilator Description

A pneumatically powered ventilator suitable for use in emergency and short/medium term stabilisation periods for patients requiring respiratory support.

This is a proven pneumatic design that is coupled with a sophisticated patient breathing circuit that gives a high level of control in a very compact and affordable package.

Aerosol of contaminated patient expired gas is reduced to a minimum or eliminated entirely to control the risk of cross infection and re-infection of both patients and clinicians. The patient circuit includes an HME patient filter and a separate device filter.

Delivers 100% Oxygen or 50% concentration which uses 2/3rds less Oxygen. Example: Typical adult setting of 10 BPM @ 450 mls = 4.5 litres minute delivered volume using only 1.5 Litres of Oxygen.

PEEP valve included within patient delivery circuit with 0- 20 cm H2O variable or fixed versions available in 5 cm H2O steps (starts at 2.5).

The device does not use electrical or battery supply – no electricity needed at all.

Patient Monitor and Alarm Specifications

  • Process of CE marking this device has started. The device ismanufactured by an ISO 13485 Certified company.
  • Special derogation is required in each national regulatory region with respect to the alarm.
  • Special dispensation will need to be sought from the FDA if used within the USA.
  • Special dispensation may need to be sought from the relevant Authority in country of use.

Patient Monitor and Alarm Description

The patient monitor and alarm is a stand alone device that is designed to work with the Microvent ventilator. The input Oxygen supply to the ventilator passes through the monitor where the gas status is monitored. The patient’s airway pressure and status is monitored via an airway pressure monitoring line that is integral to the patient delivery circuit. The device is Powered using a USB charger with rechargeable internal battery backup recharged via the USB supply. The system includes the comprehensive ability to monitor a patient’s airway status and the input gas supply from a remote hub. The available system will allow for at least 50 patients to be monitored simultaneously.

Patient airway pressure status

The device monitors the patient’s airway pressure continuously and will sound an alarm accordingly.

  • Patient over-pressure
  • Patient under-pressure
  • Patient disconnect
  • Inspiratory effort
  • Full wave form and individual breath confirmation
  • PEEP confirmation

Input gas pressure status

The device monitors the gas pressure continuously and will sound an alarm accordingly:

  • Supply failure
  • Supply low – 2.8bar or less
  • Supply high – 6.1bar or more
  • Discontinue use – 9.8bar or higher
