DRE AV-S Ventilator Now Has Multiple Spontaneous Breathing Modes

DRE, a premier surgical and medical equipment supplier, now sells its DRE Integra AV-S with a ventilator that features SIMV and SMMV; both support modes can be utilized as patients attempt to breathe spontaneously.

(Vocus) March 3, 2009 -- DRE, Inc. , which was recently named a Company of the Year by Business First of Louisville, continues expanding its DRE Integra AV-S Anesthesia Workstation to have all functions essential for today’s surgery environment. The core of the Integra AV-S is the easy-to-use AV-S ventilator, which now provides three advanced spontaneous breathing modes, including SIMV and SMMV.

The DRE AV-S Touchscreen Anesthesia Ventilator is designed for all patient types. It has a clearly-labeled, simple layout that helps surgeons make quick decisions on the fly, even in the most hectic operating environments. It features a user-friendly touchscreen and comes standard with comprehensive support modes, including SIMV and SMMV.

The AV-S ventilator’s Synchronized Intermittent Mandatory Ventilation (SIMV) and Synchronized Mandatory Minute Ventilation (SMMV) functions can be utilized as patients attempt to breathe spontaneously. Patient recovery is accelerated by increased tidal volume and SpO2, and reduced EtCO2.

The AV-S ventilator’s SIMV function provides a minimum level of volume, and allows spontaneous breaths and set mandatory breaths. When anesthesiologists utilize SIMV for spontaneously breathing patients, negative pressure (relative to PEEP) in the Trigger Window results in a synchronized mandatory breath at a preset volume and rate. When SIMV is utilized for non-breathing patients, a mandatory breath, at the end of the Trigger Window, will still be delivered at the preset volume and rate.

The AV-S ventilator’s SMMV function provides a set level of minute volume ventilation and allows spontaneous breaths, combined with a synchronized mandatory breath, to achieve the set minute volume. When anesthesiologists utilize SMMV for spontaneously breathing patients, negative pressure (relative to PEEP) in the Trigger Window results in a synchronized mandatory breath, allowing the set minute volume to be achieved. When SMMV is utilized for non-breathing patients, a mandatory breath, at the end of the Trigger Window, will still be delivered at the preset minute volume and rate.

In addition to SIMV and SMMV, the AV-S ventilator features Pressure Supported Ventilation, or PSV. PSV assists each spontaneous breath with a preset pressure, reducing the effort required to breathe. Negative pressure (relative to PEEP), generated by the patient’s spontaneous breath, results in synchronized pressure support. PSV is used to support spontaneously breathing patients only.

The AV-S ventilator is a core component of the DRE Integra AV-S, DRE’s durable, easy-to-use anesthesia workstation. The Integra AV-S has an open architecture, is perfect for ultra-low flow and is backed by a manufacturer that has never discontinued service for its anesthesia machines or ventilators.

“The DRE Integra AV-S includes a two-year warranty and costs as much as $20,000 less than competing anesthesia workstations,” says Tim Jarm, DRE’s chief operating officer. “With its low cost of ownership, the DRE Integra AV-S can provide surgery centers with an annual savings of up to 40 percent on supplies and replacement parts.”

The affordable, low maintenance DRE Integra AV-S features the high performance, autoclavable A200SP absorber, which provides an efficient CO2 absorption module and integrated, permanent spirometry sensors that don’t have to be replaced year after year.

The DRE Integra Series includes the Integra SP I and SP II, both of which are fully-featured, customizable and specifically designed for low flow. The DRE Integra Series also includes the Integra SP VSO2, a compact, portable anesthesia machine that fits nearly every surgery environment.

In addition to DRE Integra Series Anesthesia Machines, DRE’s exclusive brand of surgical and medical equipment includes the DRE Waveline Plus Vital Signs Monitor, DRE ASG Series Electrosurgical Generators and the DRE Maxx Luxx II Operating Room Lighting System.
