Intelligent Ventilation from ICU to MRI

Especially developed for the MRI suite.

The HAMILTON-MR1 combines reliability, compact size, and high performance with patient-adaptive modes that support advanced lung-protective strategies. It is the ideal choice for transporting ventilated patients to the MRI department.

  • MR-Conditional with the use of 1.5 Tesla and 3.0 Tesla static magnetic field scanners
  • The ventilator can remain close to the patient even during MRI scans
  • Integrated TeslaSpy magnetic field navigator
  • Adult, pediatric, and neonatal ventilation
  • Up to 9 hours of battery operating time
  • Independence from compressed air
  • Advanced ventilation modes including ASV® - Adaptive Support Ventilation®
  • Noninvasive ventilation and integrated high flow oxygen therapy (HFOT)*

*Always use active humidification during high flow oxygen therapy. Humidifiers are not MR-Safe.


Adapted to the MRI environment

The HAMILTON-MR1 guarantees continuous, uncompromised ventilation care from the ICU to the MRI scanner and back.


  • MR-Conditional (up to 50 mT) with the use of 1.5 Tesla and 3.0 Tesla static magnetic field scanners
  • The trolley’s auto-lock brake locks the wheels as soon as you release the handle to prevent it from rolling accidentally towards the MRI scanner
  • Hamilton Medical offers a variety of breathing circuits suitable for the MRI suite. The proximal flow sensor allows you to measure flow and pressure close to the patient’s airway, even when using very long breathing circuits

Integrated TeslaSpy with standalone alarms mirrored on the device for more safety

  • Magnetic field navigator
  • Continuously measures the background magnetic levels, even when the ventilator is switched off
  • Alarms are mirrored on the ventilator GUI and alarm lamp

Gas source switch

  • Automatically switches between the gas cylinder and central gas supply
  • Uninterrupted supply allows for continuous ventilation

What customers say about HAMILTON-MR1

Dr. Adrian Wäckerlin

Head of ICU, Grisons Cantonal Hospital

Grisons Cantonal Hospital, Chur, Switzerland

Until now, we ventilated our ICU patients during MRI scanning with an anesthesia ventilator. Therefore, we had to consult an anesthetist every time to handle the equipment. With the HAMILTON-MR1, we are now completely independent.

Thomas Berlin

Director of Respiratory Care

Florida Hospital, Orlando (FL), USA

You can take the patient on the HAMILTON-MR1 from the ICU down to the magnetic resident imaging suite for an MR study and not have to change a thing about the mechanical ventilation. And that is a true advantage because you are not risking lung de-recruitment and a patient setback, which would keep the patient in the hospital longer and make it more uncomfortable for them.
