The AnaConDa is an anesthetic delivery system developed for the administration of volatile anesthetics such as Isoflurane or Sevoflurane to invasively ventilated patients. Use of the AnaConDa system in combination with all Hamilton Medical ventilators has been successfully validated by Sedana Medical.
