Our intelligent ventilation mode turns you from a knob-turner into a supervisor. INTELLiVENT-ASV reduces the number of manual interactions with the ventilator (
In conventional modes, you set multiple ventilator controls like tidal volume or pressure, respiratory rate, FiO2, PEEP, and expiratory and inspiratory time to achieve certain clinical targets. And all those controls need frequent readjustment.
With INTELLiVENT-ASV, your defined clinical targets and strategies for oxygenation and ventilation are at the center. Once you have set them, you can decide to what extent INTELLiVENT-ASV should control oxygenation and ventilation in order to reach them.
INTELLiVENT-ASV then automatically selects ventilator settings, manages the transition between passive and active states, and actively supports your weaning protocols using Quick Wean.
Multiple international studies have demonstrated the safety and performance of INTELLiVENT-ASV in various clinical scenarios - from post-cardiac surgery (
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.

The concept from Hamilton Medical to establish automated ventilation in the ICU is certainly a step in the right direction. We use INTELLiVENT-ASV as a standard ventilation mode since 2010.

In this video, Dr. Jean-Michel Arnal, Senior Intensivist, gives you a quick demonstration of the main functionalities and settings in INTELLiVENT-ASV on a real ICU patient.
At the beginning, you set the patient's height, gender, and specific condition: normal lungs, ARDS, chronic hypercapnia, or brain injury. Next, you set the clinical targets in terms of oxygenation (SpO2) and CO2 elimination (PetCO2) for your patient.
You then have various options to fine-tune INTELLiVENT-ASV. For example, you can decide whether you want to set PEEP manually or if you want INTELLiVENT-ASV to set PEEP within a range defined by you. After reviewing or setting alarm limits, you are ready to start ventilation.
INTELLiVENT-ASV implements your strategy at the bedside. Instead of making frequent changes to individual settings, you monitor and readjust the targets and strategy when necessary.
INTELLiVENT-ASV brings the patient into your defined target range and then keeps them there - while maintaining lung-protective ventilation (
These inputs are provided by three sensors: The proximal flow sensor provides data on lung mechanics and patient activity, while the SpO2 and CO2 sensors provide data on oxygenation and CO2 elimination.
Use INTELLiVENT-ASV's Quick Wean to implement your weaning protocol. You can enable Quick Wean at any time before or during ventilation.
You can configure Quick Wean to perform controlled spontaneous breathing trials (SBTs) according to your protocols: You adjust the criteria for starting an SBT, the settings to be used while the SBT is running, and the criteria for aborting it.
INTELLiVENT-ASV always displays the history of all performed SBTs. If an SBT is unsuccessful, INTELLiVENT-ASV reverts to the previous ventilation settings.

Join the experts as they tell their stories about the many different faces of INTELLiVENT-ASV.
Clinical studies have shown that INTELLiVENT-ASV selects safe driving pressure (
INTELLiVENT-ASV requires fewer manual adjustments than conventional ventilation and thus helps lower the workload for the healthcare team (
INTELLiVENT-ASV is available as an option on the HAMILTON-G5, HAMILTON-C6, HAMILTON-C3, HAMILTON-C1 and HAMILTON-T1, and as a standard mode on the HAMILTON-S1.
