New ventilator joins the Oxylog family

The-Oxylog-2000-plusThe Oxylog 2000 plus is the newest member of the Oxylog family of emergency and transport ventilators. The device is specifically designed for ambulance services and emergency departments, combining volume controlled ventilation with ventilation modes that support patient’s spontaneous breathing. Now as an option, patients can also be ventilated non-invasively. The new device joins the Oxylog 1000 and 3000 family in October 2009.

The very first Oxylog was introduced to the market 30 years ago. Based on this know-how and expertise, the new Oxylog 2000 plus emergency ventilator, developed by Dräger Medical b.v., subsidiary of Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA has responded to customer demand for more advanced ventilation possibilities in emergency care.

With the Oxylog 2000 plus emergency physicians, paramedics and EMTs can now choose between different ventilation techniques – including the option pressure support (spontaneous breathing support) and non-invasive ventilation. Additionally, the synchronization with the patient’s breathing has been improved resulting in a minimized trigger delay.

The ventilator now has a large display which is divided into three areas. At a glance, users can see the monitored data, airway pressure and ventilation parameters. The airway pressure is displayed in the form of a bar-graph showing current and previous airway pressure measurements, breath by breath.

The Oxylog 2000 plus weighs 5.4 kg, is splash proof, and continues functioning at ambient temperatures of -20°C to +50° C. Drop tests ensure that the Oxylog 2000 plus still functions after a fall from a height of up to
75 cm.

Similar to the Oxylog 1000 and the Oxylog 3000, the Oxylog 2000 plus is built suitable for use in air ambulances and helicopters.

Following the “family-platform approach,” the Oxylog 2000 plus is compatible with the Oxylog 3000 carrying system and accessories.
