The world's first Ventilation Autopilot

  • Automated control of the patient's ventilation and oxygenation with INTELLiVENT®-ASV®
  • Protective Ventilation P/V Tool® for lung assessment and recruitment
  • IntelliCuff® automated cuff pressure controller 
  • Adult, pediatric, and neonatal ventilation

The HAMILTON-S1 is the most advanced mechanical ventilator available today with a number of unique features: It is the first ventilator featuring the "Ventilation Autopilot" INTELLiVENT-ASV. INTELLiVENT-ASV automatically controls the patient's ventilation and oxygenation based on targets set by the clinician and on physiologic input from the patient. 

The HAMILTON-S1 also includes the Protective Ventilation (P/V) Tool to assess recruitability and find the best PEEP based on respiratory mechanics, as well as providing an easy and repeatable method for performing recruitment maneuvers.
The HAMILTON-S1 also includes the unique integrated cuff pressure controller, IntelliCuff. IntelliCuff continuously monitors and automatically adjusts cuffed tracheal and tracheostomy tubes, providing real-time optimization of cuff pressure.

In addition to many other features, the HAMILTON-S1 also includes Hamilton Medical's standardized Ventilation Cockpit user interface and the unique intelligent ventilation mode, Adaptive Support Ventilation® (ASV).

What customers say about HAMILTON-S1

Dr. Jean-Michel Arnal

Senior Intensivist

Intercommunal Hospital, Var Departement, Toulon, France

INTELLiVENT-ASV is a complex mode with very advanced technology inside, but for the user it is very simple to handle.

Laurent Buscemi

ICU Nurse

Intercommunal Hospital, Var Departement, France

We gain time by using INTELLiVENT-ASV, which we can use to accomplish other important tasks that take place in an ICU, such as taking care of the patients and providing essential medical care.

Dr. Bernd Schucher

Senior Physician Pneumology

LungenClinic, Grosshansdorf, Germany

We use INTELLiVENT-ASV and I am very happy with the fast FiO2 reduction. I would love to see INTELLiVENT-ASV reducing FiO2 to 21% in the future. I think that Hamilton will make my wish come true.


Intelligent Ventilation built in

Improved patient safety and comfort

Ease of use

Increased efficiency

Improved patient safety and comfort

Hamilton Medical's intelligent ventilation modes ASV and INTELLiVENT-ASV automatically employ lung-protective strategies to minimize complications such as AutoPEEP and volutrauma/barotrauma. Within the rules of this lung-protective strategy, they encourage the patient to breathe spontaneously.

According to several studies, these intelligent ventilation modes help reduce ventilation time in various patient groups. They decrease work of breathing and improve patient-ventilator synchrony. 

The Protective Ventilation Tool (P/V Tool) and transpulmonary pressure measurement offer you additional support to execute your lung-protective ventilation strategy.

Ease of use

In close cooperation with users and ventilation experts, our engineers have designed a user interface that is particularly intuitive. Switching between the  HAMILTON-S1 and all other Hamilton Medical ventilators is easy because they are operated according to the same principles.

The Ventilation Cockpit on the HAMILTON-S1 mechanical ventilator consolidates the monitoring data and converts it into visual displays. These easy-to-understand displays give a quick overview of the patient’s current ventilation status and provide a reliable basis for therapy decisions.

Increased efficiency

Hamilton Medical ventilators and ASV can reduce ventilation time and thus treatment costs.  They can also reduce the time needed for standard settings and alarm management while maintaining ventilation quality. This frees up time for other aspects of patient care.
Thanks to the ease of operation, consistent operating concepts and free e-learning modules from Hamilton Medical, the efficiency of training is also improved.


Hamilton Medical provides e-learning modules on its ventilators, technologies and on the basics of mechanical ventilation.
