Intelligent transport ventilation

The first transport ventilator that combines the functionality of a fully featured ICU ventilator with the compactness and ruggedness required for transport.

The HAMILTON-T1 enables you to provide optimal ventilation therapy to all patient groups during transport.

  • Approvals and certificates for use in ambulances, helicopters and airplanes
  • Adult, pediatric, and neonatal ventilation
  • Independence from compressed air
  • Up to 9 hours of battery operating time
  • Noninvasive ventilation and integrated high flow oxygen therapy*
  • Advanced ventilation modes, including ASV®
  • Digital solutions for respiratory care: Hamilton Connect Module and App

*Always use active humidification during high flow oxygen therapy.


The most popular ventilator for intensive care transport helicopters

According to the HOVER survey (Handover of ventilated Helicopter Emergency Services [HEMS] patients in the emergency room) conducted online amongst air rescue organizations in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, and Luxemburg, 71% of those organizations chose the HAMILTON-T1 as their intensive care transport ventilator (1).

Designed for mobility and convenient transport

Approved for all types of transport

The HAMILTON-T1 meets the transport standards EN 794-3 and ISO 10651-3 for emergency and transport ventilators, EN 1789 for ambulances, EN 13718-1 and RTCA/DO-160G for aircraft, as well as IEC 60601-1-12 for basic safety and essential performance. It reliably accompanies your patients to any destination either within or outside of the hospital, on the ground, at sea, and in the air.

Independent from compressed air

The integrated high-performance turbine enables the HAMILTON-T1 to be completely independent from compressed air, reducing weight and saving space. Even patients ventilated noninvasively can be transported successfully across greater distances. 

Up to 9 hours of battery operating time 

A battery operating time of up to 9 hours is provided by one integrated and one hot-swappable battery. The battery operating time can be extended as required with additional hot-swappable batteries.

Flexible mounting and system integration options
The wide range of system integration and mounting options allows you to tailor the HAMILTON-T1 to your needs and infrastructure. Various solutions are available for all the main types of helicopters and ambulances, as well as hospital beds, stretchers, surfaces, shelves, poles, rails, and ceilings.

For transporting all patients, even the smallest

State-of-the-art ventilation therapy for newborns

  • Noninvasive ventilation modes and therapies developed especially for neonatal patients (synchronized noninvasive ventilation, demand-flow nCPAP modes, and high flow oxygen therapy)
  • Invasive ventilation modes developed for neonatal patients, including volume-targeted ventilation
  • Leak compensation in every mode


Continuity of care for newborns from the delivery room to the NICU, as well as for transport

  • In combination with a transport incubator, it represents an advanced solution for intra- and interhospital transport
  • Monitoring parameters specific to neonates (SpO2 measurement with Oxygen Saturation Index, SpO2/FiO2-ratio, and CO2 measurement) 

Dedicated interfaces and consumables for neonates

  • Interfaces for noninvasive ventilation specifically for neonates
  • Robust proximal sensor for accurate flow measurement with low dead space
  • Single-use consumables that may help in controlling infections

HAMILTON-T1 for armed forces

The HAMILTON-T1 for armed forces faithfully accompanies your patients to any destination on the ground, at sea, and in the air. After successfully passing the tests for military compliance according to highest demands under toughest conditions, the HAMILTON-T1 was registered for a NATO stock number (NSN 6515-01-648-5814), and is now officially available in the US military ECAT catalog.

HAMILTON-T1 for pandemics or mass casualties

Emergency preparedness ventilators must be versatile enough to meet the ventilator demands of a mass casualty and/or pandemic event. The AARC provides a list of requirements in Guidelines for Acquisition of Ventilators to Meet Demands for Pandemic Flu and Mass Casualty Incidents, all of which the HAMILTON-T1 either meets or exceeds.

What customers say about HAMILTON-T1

Dr. Ralf Huth

Senior Physician Interdisciplinary Pediatric ICU

Center for Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Mainz, Germany

We use the HAMILTON-T1 for intrahospital transport and transfers to other hospitals. This ensures that the patient receives the same quality of ventilation during transport as at the bedside.

Süha Demirakça

Senior Physician PICU & Pulmonology

Clinic for Pediatric Medicine, Mannheim, Germany

The leakage compensation of the HAMILTON-T1 is excellent and even better than in a conventional ICU ventilator. The patient is, even with high leakages, at all times optimally synchronized.

Trisha Degoyer

Life Flight Neonatal RN

Intermountain Life Flight, Salt Lake City (UT), US

To be able to use nCPAP with the HAMILTON-T1 is a huge advantage for us. We no longer have to intubate certain babies just for transport.
