Drager Apollo Anesthesia Workstation

apollo_D-7074-2009-500x500The healthcare environment is becoming gradually more integrated, in turn, it places a higher demand on anesthesia products. The Apollo Anesthesia Workstation meets these demands. With a greater emphasis on cost reduction in healthcare, this workstations helps lower operating costs and increases reimbursement.

Apollo plays an important role in optimizing your anesthesia workflow and reducing process costs with features such as the fully automatic self-test. Since no user interaction is required, you are free to get on with other jobs. In addition to providing you with invaluable assistance through best-in-class therapy, Apollo also offers you an open-platform architecture – enabling it to be easily integrated into your overall workflow.

Advanced Ventilation
Apollo has the ventilation technology to care for patients of any age and acuity. The E-Vent plus servo controlled high-speed piston ventilator works with great precision to supply a maximum peak flow far in excess of any bellows ventilator, resulting in the kind of performance previously only seen in the ICU. Additionally, unlike a bellows ventilator, it requires no drive gas. The very short response time has clear physiological benefits for your patients while the digital precision helps you make the most of the latest ventilation modes.

Enhanced Monitoring
Create your own custom-designed anesthesia workstation by adding our Infinity® Omega Solution and Innovian Anesthesia information management system. Infinity’s Pick and Go® transport solution not only offers seamless monitoring during transport, its intelligent docking stations and clean cabling system minimize transition times while helping optimize data continuity and patient care.

Unique Low-Flow Wizard
The Drager Apollo Anesthesia Workstation is designed to support the user in optimal low and minimal flow settings. The consistent use of low-flow anesthesia techniques can significantly reduce the cost of inhalational anesthetic agent. Reducing the fresh gas flow from 3L/min to 1L/min can result in anesthetic agent savings of up to 50%.

GE Ohmeda Aespire

ohmeda_aespireThe Aespire Anesthesia Machine was developed using a distinctive approach that included a close and consistent collaboration with clinicians. It had improved patient safety, it is cost effective, and innovative integration. The Aespire helps provide highly effective ventilation for pediatric to adult patients. Standard software includes Volume Control ventilation, integrated volume and oxygen monitoring, electronic PEEP and alarm management, important for every case

The Aespire combines the proven performance of the 7100 Ventilator with Datex-Ohmeda monitoring technology into an affordable system solution designed for clinicians throughout the world. The contemporary, compact design addresses many ergonomic considerations including unique cable management solutions, a large work surface and several optional integrated features such as auxiliary O2, suction control and multiple S/5 monitoring integration kits. To simplify clinical needs, the workstation provides more storage space with two large drawers, an LED light strip that provides bi-level work surface illumination and controls that are conveniently located whether clinicians are sitting or standing. The 7100 Ventilator has been specifically engineered to allow for ventilation of a wide range of patients, from pediatric to adult cases, making it an ideal solution for clinicians that are looking for a high performance ventilator at a cost-effective price.

Aespire Anesthesia Machine marks the introduction of the Advanced Breathing System (ABS). This integrated breathing system enables:

  • Easy on/off capability, facilitating easier cleaning and reduced maintenance time.
  • Ease of disassembly (no tools) and cleaning (fully autoclavable).
  • Complete detection of the ABS utilizing integrated electronics.
  • Available with 7900 Ventilator and optional SIMV and PSV Pro packages.

The Aisys Anesthesia Carestation

ge-aisys-lgThe Aisys Anesthesia Carestation from GE Healthcare helps you provide an unsurpassed performance through dedicated patient care. The perioperative carestations incorporate devices, therapies and information systems. GE Healthcare founded this idea in response to the desires and concerns of healthcare businesses everywhere. The Aisys Carestation contains INview Patient Displays, which provides you with the flexibility to position the patient monitoring, ventilation data, and controls right where you need them.

The Aisys Anesthesia Carestation is modular and upgradeable, offering a familiar user interface and fresh gas delivery. The large-panel displays are mounted on a movable arm with 360° of rotation to easily reposition displays to keep vital signs and ventilation controls in view and in reach at all times.

  • Entropy module aids clinicians in monitoring the state of the central nervous system.
  • Patient Spirometry measures airway pressures, flow, volumes, compliance and airway resistance, breath by breath at the patient’s airway.
  • The neuromuscular transmission (NMT) module provides a continuous quantitative measurement of patients’ responses to nerve stimulation and regional block.
  • The 7900 SmartVent™ is flexible enough to accommodate a broad range of patients: neonates, cardiac, compromised and routine cases.

GE’s Avance Anesthesia Carestation

A GEGE’s Avance Anesthesia Carestation is a small, assimilated anesthesia carestation that is the finest in anesthesia patient monitoring and information management.


Remarkable response time and precision gives you the best in fresh gas control and effectiveness.

  • Low flow anesthesia supported: minimum gas flow of 150 mL/min.
  • 500 millisecond mixer response time – even for dramatic flow changes. This allows you to deliver exactly what you want, exactly when you want it.
  • Since the mixer delivers fresh gas directly to the inspiratory port on your command, there is no fresh gas or agent wasted to “charge the circuit”. This facilitates low flow clinical practices – even when changing from very high flows to very low flows.
  • Intuitive and fast setting of fresh gas flow mixture makes using our state-of-the-art gas mixer easy.
  • Dual flow sensing technology helps ensure safe operation. Gas flow is checked 200 times per second to insure the carestation is delivering the proper blend based on your setting.
  • Electronic cylinder pressure sensing technology alerts you when cylinders are low.
  • Alternate O2 control provides an independent fresh gas source and flow meter control when required – helping you to support your patient under unforeseen conditions.

The Avance comes equipped with an Advanced Breathing System, the ABSTM. Its design, based on your needs and our expertise, is fully integrated into the carestation.

  • Fewer parts and connections reduce the potential for leaks and misconnects, helping to provide greater patient safety.
  • The Multi Absorber canister facilitates fast, easy removal and replacement .
  • Fully autoclavable.
  • Choice of gas scavenging options helps provide compatibility with your existing waste gas system.
  • Easy on/off capability and no tools disassembly of the ABS facilitates easier cleaning and reduces maintenance time.

Special features of the GE Avance Anesthesia Carestation make it easy to use and enable you to focus more attention on your patient.

  • System checkout is fast and intuitive, with full-color photo images to illustrate each step and confirmation tones when each test is complete. A real-time clock displays time to complete each test and the date and time it passed.
  • Patient trends can be displayed in three views: measured (numerical), settings, and graphical. Trend data is saved every five minutes for the most recent 48 hours and every 30 minutes from 48 hours to 14 days.
  • Quick Keys let you easily change O2 and total flow settings. You can use Vent Setup keys to enter and change multiple settings and one button to confirm them.
  • You can press any Gas or Vent key to take the machine out of standby and initiate gas flow to start the case, essential for emergency cases.
  • An 8-second power-down delay protects against accidental shutdown during a case.
