An anesthetic machine, the Neptune MED model is a device with many abilities and the highest level of technology and safety. This device has a pneumatic and electronic driver. All exhaust parameters are monitored for both Tidal Volume, Mute Volume, Peep, Airway Pressure and Density Oxygen Concentration.The mechanism of operation of the device is based on the Bag-in-bottle system.
The system is a semi-closed system where Fresh gas flows continuously.
The tail and exhale of the patient are carried out through a manual bag (in Manual/Spontaneous modes) or the internal bag of the device (in CMV and PCV modes). The patient CO2 is also absorbed through abzorber.
The ventilator of this anesthetic machine is made to be applicable to all patient groups (pediatric to adult) and also Tidal Volume is adjustable from 10ml to 1600ml.
The device has an ORMC safety, which means that in some situations, when N2O increases without increasing oxygen or flux of oxygen, the patient may become hypoxic. This feature prevents these happenings. This safety provides at least 25% oxygen in the N2O and O2 composition.
Also, when the pressure is lower than 1.8 times Another safety feature called N2O cut off is activated that closed the source of N2O gas supply and activate the oxygen alarm. In this condition we can not gave 100% of N2O.
"Easy to Start"
Atlantamed introduces the Balanced Bag-in-Bottle ventilator. It is a peneumatically driven, electronically controlled system and it can use oxygen or air as drive gas. When compressing the internal bag with drive gas the breathing gas is pushed towards the patientfls lungs using a positive pressure. Exhalation is a completely passive process, which allows the patient to exhale spontaneusly. Atlantamed balanced Bag-in-Bottle ventilator provides a very natural approach of lung ventilation.
BaroProtect reduces the risk of ventilator-induced lung injury during volume-controlled ventilation. It effectively prevents barotrauma by limiting unexpected pressure spikes (e.g. due to changing lung compliance). At the same time, a full breathing cycle is completed without any risk of barotrauma. BaroProtect assesses each individual patient respiratory functionality to determine the pressure level at which it is activated automatically.
Dflow Provides a decelerating flow pattern in volume-controlled ventilation. A decelerating flow provides a more desirable result in volume control. It reduces the risk of barotrauma at the end of inhilation. It improves patient-ventilator synchrony for patients requiring a high flow at the start of inhalation. And it allows for a more efficient oxygenation by delivering a larger part of the volume at an earlier stage of the inspiratory phase. In short, Dflow makes volume-controlled ventilation a safer option.
Durable Flow Sensor
Atlantamed durable flow sensor measures the differntial pressure (Fleisch Principle). A laminar plate transforms turbulent flow into laminar flow to obtain a more precise measurement. The flow sensors can be autoclaved (134°C) as part of the Patient Breathing Unit (PBU) and can be reused during the entire life cycle of the unit. A 10-year warranty on the flow sensor guarantees an unequalled cost-efficiency. Atlantamed flow sensor can reduce the cost of ownership of an anaesthesia ventilator by up to 30%.
In case of emergency Neptune MED can easily continue ventilating. The backup battery guarantees a minimum of 4 hours. In case of complete power and battery failure Neptune MED still supports manual ventilation with administration of anaesthetic agent. Even without power the ORC and nitrous oxide cut-off maintain full functionality. Backup gas cylinders (option) for oxygen and nitrous oxide can be fitted onto the trolley for continued ventilation. When power is restored it takes only 5 seconds to restart Neptune MED.
Its slim design makes it an ideal solution for even the smallest of operating theatres. With its reduced footprint space allocation is no longer an issue. A writing shelf (option) can be installed to extend the working surface. Neptune MED also has a top shelf to accommodate the vital signs monitor. At the backside of the unit two gas cylinders can be fit onto the trolly with separate pressure regulators (option) or with Pin-Index yokes (option). Neptune MED comes with an integrated airway suction system, wich operates on a medical vacuum system.
Anaesthesiologists from the four corners of the world have grown to love the simolicity of this performant machine, even in the most demanding enviroments. Whether it is in a rural, urban or academic hospital, whether it is an induction room or operating theatre, Neptune MED has a proven track record. The reason for its success can be found in its unique combination of affordability and reliability. That is why today Neptune MED is ventilating patients in over tens of countries worldwide.
The 6 inch (15cm) monochrome display shows the pressure waveform and the selected parameters. The surrounding LED displays show the measured parameters, the oxygen concentration and the pressure barograph per breath. Easy access to the keyboard controls and rotary knob make for a straightforward anesthesia ventilator. Ventilation parameters can be preselected in the setup menu to adapt Neptune MED to your individual approach. To easily monitor the remaining volume of backup oxygen and/or nitrous oxide two pressure gauges are ergonomically located directly above the ventilator controls.
Neptune MED is a pneumatically driven ventilator, meaning it does not contain any electromotor or turbine. This drastically reduces the overall maintenance cost per unit. Neptune MED requires preventive maintenance every twelve months. To allow for efficient preventive maintenance predefined service sets are available. This allows the service engineer to perform the annual preventive maintenance in a time-efficient way. Neptune MED offers optimal performance in return for a minimum of service.
The Neptune MED platform is very accessible for technical interventions. All crucial components are positioned in such a way that they can be accessed without any major disassembly. Opening just two screws allows the whole ventilator casing to tilt downwards. To further improve the Service-Friendliness an interactive calibration screen allows the service engineer to assess the status of internal components. Neptune MED is designed to minimise downtime.
Neptune MED is the most compact anaesthesia ventilator, but at the same time it is completely equipped to handle even the most demanding anaesthetic procedures. It offers a wide range of ventilation modes: MAN, SPONT, VCV, SIMV-VC, PCV and SIMV-PC. Thanks to its balanced Bag-in-Bottle ventilator Neptune MED can provide a decelerating flow pattern in volume-controlled ventilation to approach a more natural way of lung ventilation.
VoluProtect reduces the risk of ventilator-induced lung injury during manual or spontaneous ventilation. Clinical research has shown that sustained lung pressure at a critically high level can cause irreversible damage to lung tissue. VoluProtect® is designed to prevent this and to improve patient outcome. It effectively prevents volutrauma by reducing the lung pressure automatically in case of an inadvertently closed APL valve.
