Now as an option, patients can also be ventilated non-invasively. The Oxylog 2000, a market mainstay for 15 years, will be phased out. The new device joins the Oxylog 1000 and 3000 family in the second quarter of 2008.
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 (Emergency Medical Technicians) 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.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
