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.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
