Medical Consumables : Anaesthetics
Anesthesia or anaesthesia is a state of temporary induced loss of sensation or awareness. It may include analgesia (relief from or prevention of pain), paralysis (muscle relaxation), amnesia (loss of memory), or unconsciousness.
Cocoon warming blankets are specially designed to prevent hypothermia and maintain normothermia in your patients. They are designed to be used with the Care Essentials CWS 4000 Convective Patient Warming Machine. In addition, blankets can be used with current competitor convective warming machines.
The Cocoon Convective Patient Warming System includes micro processor controllect CWS 4000 warming machine and a full range of Cocoon Warming Blankets to suit various applications in patient care for maintaining patient temperature control (normathermia).
The development of the micro pore blanker system for the delivery of air gives a constant ait flow, thereby providing a uniform distribution of warm filtered air across the patient. The universal inlet port ties ensure a secure hose connection to the blanket, enabling our blankers to deliver a warm soothing cocooning effect to your patients.
Caelus is Medec’s culmination of 40 years of research and development in the field of anaesthesia workstations. To better suit the needs of your patient we have redesigned and upgraded our well-established bag-in-bottle ventilator with the latest state-of-the-art technologies. To better suit the needs of your hospital our next-generation anaesthesia ventilator is fully upgradable, providing your hospital with a future-proof solution.
To better suit your needs we have built Caelus around you. The ergonomically designed trolley with plenty of working space and storage room enhances your comfort while an 18.5 inch capacitive touchscreen shows all crucial information at a glance.
Intuitive PureTouch® user interface
Medec PureTouch®, allows you to swipe from one waveform to another in a fluent motion and browse through settings effortlessly with an unprecedented simplicity and visual acuity. Thanks to the smooth and responsive graphics, changing parameters was never easier. Swipe to configure your parameter window and choose out of 10 waveforms: pressure, flow, volume, P-V loop, F-V loop, CO2, O2, AA1, AA2 and N2O. Our new integrated gas analyser (option) allows you to centralise crucial information.
The 18.5 inch full-colour touch screen controls the gas mixer (Rotasphere®) and displays all ventilation parameters, without the need to use any rotary knob.
All changes are effected directly on the touch screen display by the touch of a finger.
Ventilation modes simplified & user-friendly
To reduce part of your workload we have simplified ventilation mode nomenclature and reduced the endless list of cryptic abbreviations without compromising on the ventilator functionality. Instead of VCV, ACV, VC-SIMV, PCV, PC-ACV, PC-SIMV and PSV our Medec PureTouch® user interface allows you to choose between ‘Volume Control’, ‘Pressure Control’ and ‘CPAP/Pressure Support’ and still offers you all possibilities of the cryptic list above by setting the required parameters within either ‘Volume Control’, ‘Pressure Control’ and ‘CPAP/Pressure Support’.
Medec's next-generation balanced bag-in-bottle ventilator guarantees the safest and most natural form of mechanical ventilation. A decelerating flow pattern in ‘volume’ mode improves patient-ventilator synchrony and reduces the risk of barotrauma. But most importantly, Medec’s unique safety systems, VoluProtect® (against volutrauma in Man/Spont) and BaroProtect® (against barotrauma in ‘volume’ mode) protect your patient’s lungs automatically, regardless of set parameters.
Medec’s RotaSphere®, an innovative rotameter system, introduces a completely new concept to the market. Fresh gas flow settings are displayed in the form of a sphere so that both gas mixture and concentrations are immediately clear, even from a distance. To change settings simply tap the RotaSphere® and swipe over the settings wheel. Set individual flows or total flow at your preference in ‘%’ or ‘l/min’.
Level of hypnosis & nociception
Adequately measure the depth of anaesthesia (option) with qCON (Depth of Hypnosis Index). qCON monitors consciousness (EEG and EMG) and allows you to tailor the hypnotics to each individual patient, providing improved patient outcome and reduced costs. Additionally, you can now monitor the level of nociception (pain) (option) with qNOX (Level of Nociception Index). qNOX monitors nociception during general anaesthesia. When using both consciousness and nociception monitoring, hypnotics and analgesics can be dosed more accurately, reducing PONV and length of stay in post-operative care units.
