New ventilation component: Dräger expands the Infinity Acute Care System

20.11.2008
With the Dräger Evita Infinity V500, Dräger launched the next component of the Infinity Acute Care System at the Medica trade fair.

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.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
