For your patients

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.

INTELLiVENT®-ASV. For bedside assistance

The intelligent ventilation mode INTELLiVENT-ASV continuously controls the ventilation and oxygenation of the patient.

It sets the minute ventilation, PEEP, and Oxygen based on the targets set by the clinician, and on physiologic input from the patient.

IntelliSync®+. For patient-ventilator synchrony

Continuously analyzing waveform shapes hundreds of times per second 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.

P/V Tool® Pro. For lung assessment and recruitment

You can use the P/V Tool Pro to assess lung recruitability and determine the recruitment strategy.

Additionally, you can use it to perform a sustained inflation recruitment maneuver and measure the increase in lung volume.

Transpulmonary pressure measurement. For inside insights

Transpulmonary pressure measurement allows optimization of PEEP, tidal volume, and inspiratory pressure.

Use it in combination with the P/V Tool Pro to assess lung recruitability and perform recruitment maneuvers.

Remote humidifier access. For your convenience

The unique ventilator connectivity option enables you to operate the HAMILTON-H900 humidifier (The HAMILTON-H900 is not approved for use during transport.e​) directly from the ventilator's display. You can access all the controls, monitoring parameters, and alarms, and adjust them as needed.

The humidifier can also select the humidification mode automatically (invasive, noninvasive, or high flow) based on the selected ventilation mode.

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​).

Integrated IntelliCuff®. For controlled cuff pressure

IntelliCuff continuously measures and automatically maintains the user-set cuff pressure of an endotracheal or tracheostomy tube in real-time (IntelliCuff Auto mode not available in all markets.c​).

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.

Volumetric capnography. For CO2ntrol freaks

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

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.

Quick Wean. For the independent-minded

Quick Wean is a feature of the INTELLiVENT-ASV mode that provides continuous dynamic monitoring and control of patient conditions to evaluate the patient’s readiness for extubation.

Automated SBTs. For the spontaneous ones

The automated spontaneous breathing trials (SBTs) are part of the Quick Wean function in the INTELLiVENT-ASV mode and give you the option of conducting fully controlled SBTs.

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

Configurable loops and trends. For statisticians

The ventilator can display a dynamic loop based on a selected combination of monitored parameters. With the trend function, you can see trending information displayed for the monitoring parameters and time frame of your choice. 

The device continually stores the monitored parameters in its memory, even when in Standby.

Pulse oximetry. For SpO2 enthusiasts

The SpO2 option offers integrated noninvasive SpO2 measurement with the data displayed conveniently on your ventilator.

We also offer a comprehensive portfolio of SpO2 sensors.

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.

nCPAP modes. For the little ones

The nCPAP modes are designed so you only need to set the desired CPAP pressure. The flow is subsequently adjusted 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 the high sensitivity of the pressure measurement.

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​).

Our intelligent ventilation mode INTELLiVENT-ASV promotes you from knob-turner to supervisor, reduces the number of manual interactions with the ventilator (Beijers AJ, Roos AN, Bindels AJ. Fully automated closed-loop ventilation is safe and effective in post-cardiac surgery patients. Intensive Care Med. 2014;40(5):752-753. doi:10.1007/s00134-014-3234-74​, Bialais E, Wittebole X, Vignaux L, et al.

Published 2017 Mar 21. doi:10.3389/fmed.2017.000316​), and ensures individualized lung-protective ventilation for your patient (Bialais E, Wittebole X, Vignaux L, et al. Closed-loop ventilation mode (IntelliVent®-ASV) in intensive care unit: a randomized trial. Minerva Anestesiol. 2016;82(6):657-668. 5​, Fot EV, Izotova NN, Yudina AS, Smetkin AA, Kuzkov VV, Kirov MY.

Heart Lung. 2020;49(4):427-434. doi:10.1016/j.hrtlng.2019.11.0017​), from intubation to extubation.

IntelliSync+ continuously analyzes waveform signals at least one hundred times per second. This enables IntelliSync+ to detect patient efforts immediately and to initiate inspiration and expiration in real-time, thus replacing conventional trigger settings for inspiration and expiration.

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.033878​) by continuously measuring and automatically maintaining the set cuff pressure for adult, pediatric, and neonatal patients.
