Simply ingenious starts here
Simply ingenious is the balancing act of making complexity manageable with an approach of simplicity. It is providing safety and flexibility in an extremely complex working environment that enables the anesthesia care team to master quickly escalating situations with confidence. This way, simply ingenious for us means ensuring maximum patient safety and operational ease by providing anesthesiologists and staff with what they need, when they need it.
When flexibility is vital: Dräger Atlan
Our guiding principles
Perioperative patient safety
Even though anesthetic mortality has undoubtedly declined over the past decades, morbidity related to anesthesia and the entire perioperative period remains significant. Anesthetists are in a key position to take the lead in this respect. PD Dr.Sven Staender, head of Anesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine, Hospital Männedorf, Switzerland and Dr. Friedrich, head of the simulation centre at Hannover University Hospital, shares their views on important ways in which anesthesiologists can improve surgical safety for patients and how simulation can help.
Lung protective ventilation
Mechanical ventilation is a potentially harmful intervention. Watch Dr. Ary Serpa Neto explain why he became interested in lung protective ventilation. From the first “mind-blowing” studies he read, to strategies for improving patient outcomes in the ICU and OR. He shares how easy it is to implement such strategies in clinical practice.
As technology makes patient care more effective and efficient at the same time, we need to make sure our devices stand the test of time. And this also includes addressing security vulnerabilities. We take cybersecurity very seriously and consider cybersecurity from the beginning of the development process. Our product security specialist talks about managing cybersecurity.
Building hygiene into design
Anyone can be the instigator of change, says Prof. Didier Pittet, external lead of the WHO campaign "Clean Care is Safer Care" and infectious disease specialist at the Geneva University Hospital. In this interview, Prof. Pittet provides insights into the relevance of infection prevention for hospitals and the challenges that are encountered when trying to implement respective measures and strategies.
Our quality is the result of extreme testing
What makes Atlan safe?
Atlan is designed with safety in mind. The goal is to be a system that makes daily routines easy and helps prevent unpredictable situations that can be very stressful. Below you will find an overview of what makes Atlan a reliable anesthesia workstation.
