Device description
The e 360 ventilator is a hight performance ventilator that is easy to use and maintain. The e360 features a dual servo gas delivery system, a servo controlled active exhalationvalve, a simple to use interface and a touch screen graphics monitor. The electronically controlled inlet gas mixing system is superior to traditional pneumatic mixers that must exhaust gas from thesystem to consistently deliver precise oxygen concentrations. The dual servos respond immediately to changes in the set FIO2. Approximately 60 minutes of operational backup power is available when theventilator’s internal battery is fully charged. In addition, the e360 has remote alarm (nurse call) and external alarm silence connections, an RS232 interface to connect to central monitoring systems,a VGA port to connect to an external monitor, and USB port for uploading software and downloading saved files.
When the e360 is turned on, the power on self-test (POST) verifies the integrity of thesoftware and hardware of the ventilator. During operation, the ventilator performs regular pressure transducer calibrations and software test to ensure accuracy of monitored and displayed data. A userinitiated Circuit Check ensures that there are no leaks in the breathing circuit system, measures circuit compliance and resistance, and calibrates the exhalation flow sensor. User initiated sensorcalibration tests allow for calibration of the Oxygen and Exhalation Flow Sensors.
All breath types and modes include a range of ventilation and alarm settings appropriate for adult or pediatric/infant patients. The e360 has settable alarm limits for High and Low Peak Airway Pressure, High and Low Expiratory Minute Ventilation, High Respiratory rate, disconnect threshold and Apnea. There arebuilt- in alarms for O2 monitoring, O2 and Flow Sensors, Low Baseline Pressure, High Baseline Pressure, Sustained High Baseline Pressure, Ventilator settings violations, Low Battery, Gas Supply Failure,...
