Advanced ventilation in the operating room

The Perseus A500’s TurboVent 2 ventilation technology supports the continuum of ICU-quality ventilation across all patient categories. Airway pressure release ventilation (APRV) and Volume AutoFlow let you continue protective ventilation therapy in the operating room. The new breathing system design of the anesthesia machine facilitates fast gas concentration changes to help you manage cases with certainty and allows patients to breath spontaneously at any time.

Enhanced workplace ergonomics

The Perseus A500 offers a generous, well-lit workspace for documentation and organization of accessories. With large drawers, hooks, and various shelving options, there is ample room to store and manage accessories as well. The anesthesia machine’s integrated cable channels and castor cable deflectors help you maintain a clutter-free workspace. And the Perseus A500’s newly designed breathing system can be disassembled and reassembled in just a few simple steps.

Flexible workflow support

The workflow support features of the Perseus A500 are designed to streamline and simplify your routine. Its flexible design supports various mounting options for monitors, clinical IT hardware, shelves, and poles for IV pumps to best suit your needs. A common user interface between the ventilator display, patient monitoring system and clinical IT components promotes fast clinical adoption and intuitive control. And a timer-based, fully automatic self-test prepares the anesthesia machine before you are even in the operating room.

Low- and minimal-flow anesthesia tools

The low-and minimal-flow anesthesia tools on the Perseus A500 are designed to improve the clinical, financial and environmental impact of anesthesia delivery. Its Low Flow Wizard guides clinicians to the lowest possible fresh gas flow so anesthetic agent consumption/costs can be minimized. And the anesthesia machine’s heated breathing system is designed to reduce condensation especially during extended cases.

Award-winning design

The Perseus A500 has been awarded two major design awards: the “iF product design award 2013” in the category “medicine / health+care” and the “red dot design award 2013: best of the best” in the category “Life science and medicine.” Both awards count among the most important international design competitions and not only rate design quality, but also aspects such as safety, ergonomics, functionality, degree of innovation, and environmental compatibility.
