Always on the lookout. Your magnetic field navigator

The TeslaSpy helps you to keep the ventilator at a safe distance to the MRI scanner.

HAMILTON-MR1

Two strong arms. For the extra long breathing circuits

Choose between a variety of breathing circuits of different lengths suitable for the MRI suite.

HAMILTON-MR1

Stay! Locked in place automatically

The auto-lock brakes on the trolley automatically lock in place, preventing the ventilator from accidentally rolling toward the MRI scanner.

Come closer! MR-Conditional up to 50 mT

The HAMILTON-MR1 allows you to get close to the MRI scanner, because it is designed to withstand a static magnetic field of up to 50 mT. In comparison to ventilators with weaker shielding from the magnetic field, it gives you more freedom when positioning the device, a wider range of movement, and greater flexibility for your workflow and patient setup.

Closer proximity to the scanner also means you can use shorter breathing circuits. The advantage is their smaller compressible volume, which can contribute to better overall ventilation quality.

HAMILTON-MR1 pushing quick release button

Click on, click off. For an easy transition

The quick-release button on the transport kit allows you to detach the device from the trolley with just the push of a button. And it re-attaches just as easily.

With the new Software update 3.0 for the HAMILTON-MR1, the audiovisual TeslaSpy alarms on the are now mirrored on both the ventilator display and the alarm lamp for greater visibility. TeslaSpy is a magnetic field navigator which continuously measures the background magnetic levels, even when the ventilator is switched off. It lets you know when magnetic field levels are safe, and when they exceed the ventilator’s safety threshold. The TeslaSpy alarms are now also included in the Event log.

The Software Update 3.0 brings a lot of new features to our compact devices. To learn more go to: www.hamilton-medical.com/compact-device-more-features

The availability of SW v3.0.x, as well as individual features, depends on the specific device and market.

Your lookout is on board. To navigate the magnetic field

The onboard magnetic field navigator, TeslaSpy, continuously monitors the magnetic field and gives you an audible and visual signal if you are getting too close. Positioning a medical device too close to the MRI scanner can have fatal consequences.

The TeslaSpy alarms are mirrored on the device's GUI and on the alarm lamp. For maximum safety, TeslaSpy continues monitoring even when the ventilator is switched off.

Customer voices

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.

Customer voices

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.

For your patients

Intelligent ventilation solutions at a glance

ASV® - Adaptive Support Ventilation®. For adaptation around the clock

The ventilation mode ASV continuously adjusts the respiratory rate, tidal volume, and inspiratory time breath by breath depending on the patient’s lung mechanics and effort - 24 hours a day, from intubation to extubation.

Integrated nebulizer. For additional treatments

The integrated pneumatic nebulizer is fully synchronized with the timing of inspiration and expiration.

An integrated, synchronized Aerogen nebulizer is available as an option (Not available in all marketsa​, Only available for HAMILTON-C6/G5/S1b​).

The delivery of a fine mist of drug aerosol particles helps you reverse bronchospasm, improve ventilation efficiency, and reduce hypercapnia (Dhand R. New frontiers in aerosol delivery during mechanical ventilation. Respir Care. 2004;49(6):666-677. 100​, Waldrep JC, Dhand R. Advanced nebulizer designs employing vibrating mesh/aperture plate technologies for aerosol generation. Curr Drug Deliv. 2008;5(2):114-119. doi:10.2174/156720108783954815101​).

Speaking valve. For chatterboxes

The Speak Valve option gives tracheostomized patients a voice, and allows them to swallow even while receiving respiratory support.

The ventilator's monitoring, triggering, and alarm management are adjusted for compatibility with speaking valves in pressure-controlled modes (PCV+, SPONT, PSIMV+).

CPR ventilation. For lifesavers

CPR ventilation adapts the ventilator settings during rescucitation. It supports the CPR workflow with quick access to preconfigurable settings, adequate alarm and trigger adjustment, and CPR-timer display.

The main monitoring parameters and curves relevant to CPR ventilation are also displayed.

Vent Status panel. For those who are ready to wean

The Vent Status panel displays six parameters related to the patient’s ventilator dependence, including oxygenation, CO2 elimination, and patient activity.

A floating indicator moving up and down within each column shows the current value for a given parameter.

Dynamic Lung panel. For visual people

The Dynamic Lung panel shows you a graphic real-time representation of the following important monitoring data:

  • Tidal volume
  • Compliance and resistance
  • Patient triggering
  • SpO2
  • Pulse rate

High-performance noninvasive ventilation. For mask-wearers

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).

Compared to ventilators using compressed air, our turbine-driven ventilators are capable of providing higher peak flow rates. This guarantees optimal performance even with large leaks.

High flow nasal cannula therapy. For O2 fanatics

High flow nasal cannula therapy is available as an option on all our ventilators. In just a few steps, you can change the interface and use the same device and breathing circuit to accommodate your patient’s therapy needs.

Automation; Hand turns knob button clockwise

Less knob-turning. More adaptations to your patient

To manage ventilation you usually have to set multiple parameters, such as pressure, volume, inspiratory and expiratory triggers, cuff pressure, and more. And each time your patient's condition changes, you have to make one or even several readjustments.

To simplify this process and reduce the knob-turning, we have created a range of solutions:

Adaptive Support Ventilation (ASV) is a ventilation mode that provides continuous adaptation of respiratory rate, tidal volume, and inspiratory time, depending on the patient’s lung mechanics and effort. ASV has been shown to shorten the duration of mechanical ventilation in various patient populations with fewer manual settings (​Kirakli C, Naz I, Ediboglu O, Tatar D, Budak A, Tellioglu E. A randomized controlled trial comparing the ventilation duration between adaptive support ventilation and pressure assist/control ventilation in medical patients in the ICU. Chest. 2015;147(6):1503-1509. doi:10.1378/chest.14-25991​, Tam MK, Wong WT, Gomersall CD, et al. A randomized controlled trial of 2 protocols for weaning cardiac surgical patients receiving adaptive support ventilation. J Crit Care. 2016;33:163-168. doi:10.1016/j.jcrc.2016.01.0182​, Zhu F, Gomersall CD, Ng SK, Underwood MJ, Lee A. A randomized controlled trial of adaptive support ventilation mode to wean patients after fast-track cardiac valvular surgery. Anesthesiology. 2015;122(4):832-840. doi:10.1097/ALN.00000000000005893​).

Conventional solutions for cuff pressure management require you to monitor and adjust cuff pressure by hand.

IntelliCuff secures your patient’s airway (Chenelle CT, Oto J, Sulemanji D, Fisher DF, Kacmarek RM. Evaluation of an automated endotracheal tube cuff controller during simulated mechanical ventilation. Respir Care. 2015;60(2):183-190. doi:10.4187/respcare.033874​) by continuously measuring and automatically maintaining the set cuff pressure for adult, pediatric, and neonatal patients.
