New ventilator joins the Oxylog family

29.04.2008
The Oxylog 2000 plus1 is the newest member of the Oxylog family of emergency and transport ventilators. The device is specifically designed for ambulance services and emergency departments, combining volume controlled ventilation with ventilation modes that support patient’s spontaneous breathing.

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.

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
