Lung Protective Ventilation
Inflammation caused by lung overdistension (volutrauma) is thought to be important in the pathogenesis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Preterm infants with variable lung compliance are particularly at risk. Use of protective tidal volumes, 4 – 6 ml/kg in preterm infants, has been shown to reduce ventilator length of stay, incidence of BPD and pneumothorax.
The HAMILTON-C2 with volume targeted ventilation delivers consistent, appropriate tidal volumes as low as 2 ml with the aim of reducing lung damage. This type of lung protective ventilation can provide an effective, safer means of ventilating the neonatal patient.
At the bedside or on the move: benefit from a double-duty solution
The HAMILTON-C2’s compactness and independence from external power and air supplies allow for maximum mobility throughout the hospital. With the extended battery option, your ventilator can run for an indefinite time on hot-swappable batteries. With 2 fully charged batteries, independence of 5.5 hours can be achieved.
The HAMILTON-C2 includes everything you expect from a high-performance ICU ventilator:
- An extensive monitoring package with 72h trend function
- A compact design, built-in batteries and ultra-quiet turbine
- The ability to ventilate adult, pediatric, and neonatal patients
- A Ventilation Cockpit that is designed to improve safety through intuitive operation and monitoring
