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: 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...
