• Adult, pediatric, and neonatal ventilation

    The HAMILTON-C1 mechanical ventilator provides effective, safe, and lung-protective ventilation for adult, pediatric, and neonatal patients. For neonatal patients, a specifically developed neonatal proximal flow sensor is used. The tidal volume range goes down to 2 ml.

    All features
  • Mobility for intra-hospital transport

    The high-performance turbine enables the HAMILTON-C1 mechanical ventilator to be completely independent from compressed air, and its integrated high-capacity battery allows you to ventilate your patients during intrahospital transport without the need of an external power source. The compact design of the HAMILTON-C1 mechanical ventilator makes handling much easier.

    All features
  • Integrated high-performance turbine

    The integrated high-performance turbine enables the HAMILTON-C1 to be completely independent from compressed air. This reduces weight and saves space.

    All features
  • Adaptive Support Ventilation (ASV) for lung-protective ventilation

    All Hamilton Medical ventilators feature the intelligent ventilation mode, Adaptive Support Ventilation® (ASV®). ASV continuously adjusts respiratory rate, tidal volume, and inspiratory time depending on the patient’s lung mechanics and effort. ASV adapts ventilation breath-by-breath, 24 hours a day, from intubation to extubation.

    A lung-protective strategy ensures ASV’s safety. ASV attempts to guide the patient using a favorable breathing pattern and avoids potentially detrimental patterns. ASV has been a well established mode in critical care since 1998 and has become a standard mode in many units around the world.

    Clinical studies show that ASV:

    • Supports the earliest possible spontaneous breathing by the patient
    • Shortens the ventilation time in various patient populations
    • Reduces the number of interventions by the clinical staff

  • High flow oxygen therapy (optional)

    The HAMILTON-C1 optionally provides an integrated high flow oxygen therapy mode. With this enhancement, the HAMILTON-C1 gives you in one device a variety of therapy options, including invasive and noninvasive ventilation, and high flow oxygen therapy. In just a few steps, you can change the interface and use the same device and breathing circuit to accommodate your patient’s needs.

    All features
  • High performance noninvasive ventilation (NIV)

    The noninvasive ventilation modes deliver pressure-supported, flow-cycled spontaneous breaths (NIV and NIV-ST mode) and pressure-controlled, time-cycled mandatory breaths (NIV-ST). In NIV modes, the ventilator functions as a demand flow system. When pressure support in NIV mode is set to zero, the ventilator functions like a conventional CPAP system.

    Compared to a compressed-air-based intensive care ventilator, the HAMILTON-C1 ventilator provides a higher peak flow rate of up to 260 l/min due to an integrated high-performance turbine. This guarantees optimal performance even with large leaks. In addition, the IntelliTrig leak compensation function adapts to changing breath patterns and airway leaks to achieve optimum synchronization between patient and device. 

    All features
  • Speaking valve

    In pressure controlled modes (PCV+, SPONT, PSIMV+), an optional feature enables use of conventional speaking valves with the HAMILTON-C1. Monitoring, triggering, and alarm management have been adjusted to allow the use of speaking valves.

    All features
  • Volumetric capnography

    Proximal flow and CO2 measurement enables Hamilton Medical ventilators to perform up-to-date volumetric capnography, which provides an important basis for the assessment of ventilation quality and metabolic activity.

  • SpO2 measurement

    The integration of the SpO2 option with Hamilton Medical ventilators offers a new and innovative solution for noninvasive measurement. Hamilton Medical also provides a comprehensive portfolio of SpO2 sensors.

    All features
  • nCPAP modes

    The nCPAP modes are designed so that you only need to set the desired CPAP pressure. The flow is subsequently adjusted automatically based on patient conditions and potential leaks. This prevents unintended peak pressures, guarantees highly efficient leak compensation, and helps to reduce oxygen consumption. Flow adjustment occurs very rapidly due to high sensitivity of the pressure measurement.

    All features
  • All ventilation modes

    The ventilator supports the following types of modes:

    • Intelligent ventilation modes with Adaptive Support Ventilation (ASV)
    • Pressure-controlled modes (including biphasic modes)
    • Volume controlled-modes (adaptive)
    • Pressure support modes
    • Modes for noninvasive ventilation
    • High flow oxygen therapy

    Thanks to its biphasic pneumatic design, the ventilator always yields to spontaneous breathing in all modes. This is achieved through a special valve control system independent of any trigger mechanism. 

    All features
  • IntelliTrig leak compensation for NIV and invasive ventilation

    The IntelliTrig function automatically adjusts the inspiratory and expiratory trigger sensitivity to airway leaks and ensures optimal synchronization with the patient’s breathing pattern. This is achieved both with invasively and noninvasively ventilated patients.

    All features
  • Vent Status for simplified patient assessment

    The Vent Status panel is part of the Ventilation Cockpit. It displays six parameters related to the patient’s ventilator dependence, including oxygenation, CO2 elimination, and patient activity. A floating indicator (floater) that moves up and down within the column shows the value for a given parameter. The panel is updated breath by breath. When all values are in the weaning zone, the Vent Status panel is framed in green, indicating that spontaneous breathing trials should be considered. 

    All features
  • Dynamic Lung for simplified patient monitoring

    The Dynamic Lung panel is part of the Ventilation Cockpit. It displays tidal volume, lung compliance, interaction with the heart, patient triggering, and resistance in real-time. The lungs expand and contract in synchrony with actual breaths. The shape of the lungs changes with compliance. Numeric values for resistance (Rinsp) and compliance (Cstat) are also displayed.

    All features
  • Proximal flow sensor for precise measurements

    The proximal flow sensor precisely measures the pressure, volume, and flow directly at the patient’s airway opening. This provides the required sensitivity and response time, and prevents dead space ventilation. Your patient is better synchronized and has less work of breathing as a result. 

    All features
  • Configurable loops and trends

    The ventilator can display a dynamic loop based on two selectable monitored parameters. With the trend function, the ventilator can display monitored parameters in a selectable time frame. The device continually stores the monitored parameters in memory, so you have access to any of this data, even in standby. 

    All features
  • Optimal alarm detection

    Even from a distance or at high noise levels, the HAMILTON-C1 mechanical ventilator alarming is easily identified by the top-mounted 360°-visible alarm lamp. The optional nurse call capability provides additional support for optimal alarm detection.

    All features
  • Integrated pneumatic nebulizer

    The integrated pneumatic nebulizer is fully synchronized with the inspiration and exhalation timing. The delivery of a fine mist of drug aerosol particles helps you improve your ventilation efficiency, for example in cases of bronchospasm or chronic hypercapnia.”

    All features
  • Serial interface for connection to PDMS or patient monitors

    The serial RS-232 interface provides two ports for connection to hospital monitors and Patient Data Management Systems (PDMS).
