Saturn Evo Color is Medec’s mid-range anaesthesia ventilator. It’s a fully equipped system with a powerful bag-in-bottle ventilator, capable of handling a wide range of patient categories: neonates, infants and adults (incl. bariatric patients).
Saturn Evo Color is designed with the focus on patient safety, reliability and cost efficiency. It comprises some unique safety systems (e.g. VoluProtect® and BaroProtect®), it’s a durable piece of equipment (high-grade materials) and reduces the cost of ownership to a strict minimum (e.g lifetime warranty on the flow sensor).
The ergonomically positioned 10.4″ full-colour touchscreen and rotary knob make for smooth sailing throughout the anaesthetic procedure.
A gas analyser (option) can be integrated into the Saturn Evo Color. The gas analyser allows you to monitor all inspiratory and expiratory gas values, the capnography waveform and the measured MAC value. Automatic agent identification and dual agent identification are included. The paramagnetic oxygen analyser has an unlimited life span and does not require calibration.
Its compact design makes it an ideal solution for any operating theatre. An extendable writing shelf can increase the working surface. Saturn Evo Color also has a top shelf to accommodate the vital signs monitor. At the backside of the unit two gas cylinders can be fit onto the trolley with separate pressure regulators (option) or with pin-index yokes (option). Saturn Evo Color comes with an integrated airway suction system, which operates on a medical vacuum system. It also comprises an integrated gas scavenging interface.
BaroProtect® reduces the risk of ventilator-induced lung injury during volume-controlled ventilation. It effectively prevents barotrauma by limiting unexpected pressure spikes (e.g. due to changing lung compliance). At the same time, a full breathing cycle is completed without any risk of barotrauma. BaroProtect® assesses each individual patient’s respiratory functionality to determine the pressure level at which it is activated automatically.
Medec was the first to introduce the balanced bag-in-bottle ventilator. It’s a pneumatically driven, electronically controlled system and it can use oxygen or air as drive gas. When compressing the internal bag with drive gas the breathing gas is pushed towards the patient’s lungs using a positive pressure. Exhalation is a completely passive process, which allows the patient to exhale spontaneously. Medec’s balanced bag-in-bottle ventilator provides a very natural approach of lung ventilation.
In case of emergency Saturn Evo Color can easily continue ventilating. The backup battery guarantees a minimum of 90 minutes. In case of complete power and battery failure Saturn Evo Color still supports manual ventilation with administration of anaesthetic agent. Even without power the ORC and nitrous oxide cut-off maintain full functionality. Backup gas cylinders (option) for oxygen and nitrous oxide can be fitted onto the trolley for continued ventilation.
