This patient supply system aims to improve clinical processes and workflows by offering especially powerful individual components for patient monitoring, therapy and information management.
The Evita Infinity V500 offers modern acute care ventilation therapies, both invasive as well as non-invasive. It can also be integrated into the Infinity Acute Care System. “This is what's important: it is no longer about single components but a holistic concept. In future, we need systems that are capable of combining various data and generating decision-making aids", says Prof. Dr. Eike Martin, Managing Director of the Clinic for Anesthesiology at the University Hospital of Heidelberg. Market launch is planned for the end of 2008.
Increase patient safety
Dräger accessories with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology are designed to increase patient safety, simplify handling and improve workflows. Once these accessories are connected to the V500, information is exchanged using RFID technology. For example, incorrectly inserted breathing circuits would trigger an alarm. The device also reminds the user when to replace certain accessories.
System settings can be transferred quickly
The V500 can quickly transfer configurations, such as screen content or therapy and alarm settings, from one device to another. Whereas it used to take between 15 and 45 minutes to transfer a configuration, clinicians can now recreate the exact same settings in no time on any number of V500 systems using a standard USB storage device. In addition, the V500 offers the option to export log books, trends and screen content to a USB stick and then print or e-mail the data. This mobile data facilitates interdisciplinary consultations and can be used as the basis for training documents.
Stable respiration quality even during transport
The V500 also provides constant ventilation quality and continuous monitoring when the patient is being transported. In future the V500 will be able to be docked to a gas supply cart and connected to the bed.
Flexible and ready for the future
Different treatment functions for invasive and non-invasive ventilation and oxygen therapy enable the clinician to respond quickly and flexibly to changing patient circumstances. When clinicians choose the Evita Infinity V500 today, they can build on it in future, combining it with other components to create one harmonious system.
In addition to the Heidelberg University Hospital, the university hospitals in Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE), Magdeburg and Zürich were among the first to acquire the Dräger Evita Infinity V500.

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...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
