Perseus® A500

Meet the newest anesthesia machine from Dräger – the Perseus A500. Combine proven ventilation technology with the latest refinements in ergonomics and systems integration with an advanced, easy to use anesthesia platform designed together with experts from around the world to streamline your anesthesia workflow.

Prediction of volatile anesthetics concentrations

In combination with the Option Vapor View (and Vapor 3000 / D-Vapor 3000), the Dräger Perseus A 500 gives you sophisticated oxygen and anesthetic agent level prediction technology, letting you perform low and minimal flow anesthesia with even more confidence. The Perseus A500 also incorporates RFID technology, alerts you if an erroneous hose connection is made and reminds you when it’s time to change or maintain RFID-equipped system components.

Comfortable design

The Perseus A500 was made for you. The user interface utilizes the familiar Dräger operating system featuring the same rotary knob you know from other Dräger venitlators and anesthesia platforms. Learning to use the Perseus A500 is therefore as straightforward as with any other Dräger medical device. The sleek, modern design is a comfortable, inviting place to spend your shift while providing state-of-the-art care for your patients.
