Supporting care with technology

When handling the unexpected in emergency care, you will never know what to expect. At Dräger, we understand that initial diagnoses and treatment decisions in emergency care can represent a patient’s first and sometimes only opportunity for a favourable outcome. Regardless of the patient’s initial condition, supporting you with reliable technology is our focus in emergency care.

Non-Invasive ventilation for emergency patients

Greater convenience, comfort and safety: Non-invasive ventilation in pre-hospital emergency care.

Together with the Dräger Oxylog VE 300 and Oxylog 3000 plus, prevent intubation as long as possible because:

  • patients with mechanically assisted ventilation could develop ventilator-associated-pneumonia (VAP)
  • patients with VAP could have a significantly longer ICU and hospital length of stay
  • the treatment of VAP may account for almost half of all antibiotics administered in ICUs

O2 Therapy

High-flow oxygen therapy is becoming increasingly useful in the clinical environment, for both preventing intubation and recovery post extubation. High-flow oxygen therapy is typically used in spontaneously breathing patients who require oxygen at higher flow rates, specifically high-flow interfaces are required for this. With the Dräger Evita ventilators, flow rates of up to 50l/min and accurate oxygen concentration from 21 percent to 100 percent can be achieved.

Find out the benefits of using O2 therapy for your patients and you:

Outcomes for clinicians

Outcome for patients

A single device at the bedside for all levels of respiratory therapy delivering O2 therapy

Less anxiety and more comfort
Patients stay on the same device throughout the duration of treatment

Time saving
Nurses do not need to find another device for the bedside, and only have one device for cleaning

Noise reduction
Noise from ventilators that deliver high flow oxygen is usually quieter than an independent device

Infection prevention
Using the same device and circuit reduces the risk of cross contamination

Patient safety
Ventilator with high flow oxygen is ready for NOV and ET ventilation

Cost saving
With the same circuit on the device, there’s no need to buy additional device which would require service and maintenance

If the patient does not need to go back to non-invasive ventilation, the transition is seamless

Accuracy of O2 delivery
The delivery of FiO2 can be accurately selected by the device rotary norm

Clinical use of high-flow therapy

High-flow oxygen therapy is increasingly useful in clinical environments. Accompanying patients along the Respiratory Pathway, the use of O2 therapy is available for the Evita XL, Eviat V300 and Evita V500. Watch our video to learn more.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

The Oxylog VE 300 offers the “CPR” button to immediately start the resuscitation mode. Thanks to the adjusted pre-settings, you can concentrate completely on your patient during resuscitation – and always act according to the guidelines.

PPE in Hospital

During the pandemic, the use of the appropriate PPE when in contact with patients is key. The World Health Organization (WHO) published an interim guidance “Infection prevention and control during health care when COVID-19 is suspected” which names the appropriate PPE when in contact with patients.
