• Adult, pediatric, and neonatal ventilation

    The HAMILTON-C6 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.

  • Automated ventilation with INTELLiVENT-ASV

    With INTELLiVENT-ASV, the clinician sets targets for PetCO2 and SpO2 for the patient. INTELLiVENT-ASV then automatically controls the ventilation and oxygenation of the patient. INTELLiVENT-ASV sets the minute ventilation, PEEP, and FiO2 based on the targets set by the clinician and on physiologic input from the patient (PetCO2, SpO2, lung mechanics, activity). 

    INTELLiVENT-ASV is based on the proven Adaptive Support Ventilation (ASV). INTELLiVENT-ASV continuously monitors patient conditions, and safely adjusts parameters to keep the patient within target ranges, with minimal clinician interaction, from intubation until extubation. INTELLiVENT-ASV also provides tools to promote early, automated weaning (Quick Wean).

    Clinical studies show that INTELLiVENT-ASV:

    • Is safe
    • Keeps patients in an optimal zone more often than conventional modes
    • Automatically adapts to different lung conditions
    • Requires less interactions by clinicians

  • P/V Tool® Pro - the protective ventilation tool

    The Protective Ventilation Tool (P/V Tool Pro) performs a respiratory mechanics maneuver that records a quasi-static pressure/volume curve. This method can be used to assess lung recruitability and determine the recruitment strategy to apply.

    The P/V Tool Pro can also be used to perform a sustained inflation recruitment maneuver and measure the increase in lung volume. It is particularly helpful for ARDS patients, as selecting an appropriate lung recruitment strategy and the correct PEEP setting as an anti-derecruiting force are critical for this patient group.

    In combination with esophageal pressure measurement, the P/V Tool Pro can give you a clearer understanding of the lung and chest-wall mechanics. This enables you to apply a lung-protective ventilation strategy by titrating the PEEP level (Talmor 2008), and optimizing the parameters for the recruitment maneuver, driving pressure and tidal volume.

    All features
  • Transpulmonary pressure measurement

    Esophageal pressure is considered  a substitute for pleural pressure. Partitioning of lung and chest wall compliance is then possible and is very useful to set PEEP and tidal volume, assess lung recruitability, and perform recruitment maneuvers. Transpulmonary pressure is airway pressure minus esophageal pressure measured during an end-inspiratory or end-expiratory occlusion, and represents the pressure to distend the lung parenchyma. 

    Transpulmonary pressure allows customization of ventilator settings to optimize lung recruitment and protective ventilation in mechanically ventilated patients.

  • Integrated automatic cuff pressure controller IntelliCuff

    IntelliCuff is a new noninvasive automatic cuff pressure controller integrated with the ventilator. IntelliCuff continuously monitors and automatically adjusts cuffed tracheal and tracheostomy tubes, providing real-time optimization of cuff pressure.
     
    IntelliCuff:

    • helps to prevent and control VAP and tracheal injuries
    • is integrated with the ventilator, so there is no need for external device handling
    • provides continuous real-time monitoring of optimal cuff pressure during the entire ventilation period
    • supports and optimizes mechanical ventilation therapy

  • IntelliSync+

    IntelliSync+ keeps an eye on patient-ventilator synchrony by continuously analyzing waveform shapes hundreds of times per second. This allows IntelliSync+ to detect patient efforts and cycling immediately, and initiate inspiration and expiration in real-time. IntelliSync+ applies to invasive and noninvasive ventilation, regardless of the ventilation mode.

    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-C6 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
  • High flow oxygen therapy (optional)

    The HAMILTON-C6 optionally provides an integrated high flow oxygen therapy mode. With this enhancement, the HAMILTON-C6 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
  • Integrated humidifier control

    The unique ventilator connectivity option allows control of the HAMILTON-H900 humidifier from the ventilator. All controls, monitoring parameters, and alarms are available and can be controlled from the ventilator. The humidifier can also automatically select the humidification mode (invasive vs. noninvasive) based on the selected ventilation mode.
