Patient Transport

  • No need to change the ventilator during patient transport.
  • Operate the device in intra-hospital transport independently with gas and external power supply units.
  • Utilise the bed coupling to safely transport the patient in the bed.

Early Mobilisation

  • Early mobilisation of the patient helps to decrease the possibility of delirium as well as the length of stay in the ICU. 
  • Studies show that the cost of care also decreases, and more importantly there is an improvement in the patient’s functional independence upon discharge.1,2,3

Quick and effective weaning icon
  • Stabilises the patient’s spontaneous breathing in a comfortable zone of normal ventilation and automatically reduces ventilatory support (SmartCare®/PS).
  • Increases variability in spontaneous breathing and mimics the variability in normal breaths (Variable PS, PPS) which may improve pulmonary function and reduce risk of VALI.
  • Maintains stable tidal volumes even when compliance, resistance and spontaneous respiration drive changes to reduce the risk for overdistention or collapse and protects the lung against hyper-and hypoinflation (AutoFlow®, Volume Guarantee).
  • Compensates for artificial airway resistance in all ventilation modes (ATC®).

Connected technologies icon

We envision a future of acute care where medical devices are connected as a system. Interoperability between different devices can help to avoid preventable medical errors and potentially serious inefficiencies. 

The new standardised network protocol named SDC makes the safe and dynamic connectivity in the hospital possible which will allow the interoperability of medical devices in the future. 

Our first step is connectivity through CC300:

  • Give you full HL7 data export to HIS from all devices to exchange high-quality data between medical devices and EMR.
  • Ensure future-proof open connectivity: standardised and secure communication between medical devices with high level of cyber security.

This is differentiation

Our devices combine high performance ventilation with an aesthetic design and state-of-the art operating philosophy. Watch our video below and discover the new simple way how you can guide your ventilation strategy.

This is the new user experience in mechanical ventilation.

User Interface Designer Sebastian Fischer

This is more important than layout

We asked our User-Interface Designer Sebastian Fischer three questions about how the design process of a new user interface starts. What do you need to consider and what are the improvements in daily use?

How do you start the development of a new user interface? Where do the user insights come from?

First we look at the needs of our customers and users. Then we analyse their workflows and daily routines in the clinical environment. Further input comes from our sales, marketing and Dräger Service departments.

In addition, we also integrate direct customer feedback from the Customer Support into our work.

What was the main reason to revise the UI? What was particularly important to you during the development?

Today, many products in our customers’ everyday lives are digitised and networked. This also has an impact on their expectations with regards to the UI – new ways to interact with devices have established themselves.

These include, for example, a tablet-like operating system, which is now also part of the new Dräger user interface. It was important to us that users could transfer their experiences from everyday life as directly as possible to our devices.

This contributes to shorter training times and increased application safety - and thus also patient safety.

What are the main advantages of the new interface in relation to its daily use?

In today’s intensive care units you find many devices around the patient's bed. Doctors and nursing staff have to process the information and data from all of these devices. The new user interface has a clear design that helps them to make quick and accurate decisions. Moreover, the bright background minimises disturbing reflections of ambient light. We know that the use of only a few colours brings peace of mind; this is why we decided to use only signal colours when it’s really necessary. The same applies to the information on display, where we have reduced it to the essentials. Decisive clinical questions beyond that can be answered with a few extra interactions.

Another important advantage is that you can start the ventilation in the new Evita V series simply, safely and in just a few steps. This makes a significant contribution to relieving staff of their daily routine work.

Dr Thierbach talks about his first impression about the Evita V800

This is what your colleagues think about it

You never get a second chance for a first impression. That’s why we asked Dr Thierbach three quick questions to get his impressions after having used the new Evita for the first time.

What was the first thing you noticed when you saw the new Evita?

The display on the screen is tidier and clearer, the colours are well chosen and thanks to considerably improved sharpness the readability and visibility is very good. There are practical additional possibilities of representation and individual configurations. The new user interface also supports us with great new help functions during the implementation of the ventilation therapy.

How did you find the introduction to the product?

Actually, we didn't need a briefing at all. My colleagues and I are used to the Dräger operating philosophy and immediately felt very familiar with the device. This is of course a great advantage in terms of safety and training.

This drastically reduces the likelihood of errors due to overload, hectic behaviour or lack of knowledge.

How would you summarise the new Evita in one sentence?

A consequent further development of a proven technology with an improvement in all areas.

is the only ventilation mode that shortens weaning time (up to 40%) and ICU stay.⁸

Ventilated lung icon


In patients suffering from moderate to severe ARDS, application of APRV improved lung funktion and haemo-dynamics. It also reduced the need for sedatives and the duration of mechanical ventilation as well as days in ICU.⁹

Shorter stay in ICU icon

Shorter stay in ICU

NIV shortens stay on intensive care wards and reduces the length of hospital stay by an average of 3 days.¹⁰

This is improving outcomes

Ventilated patients are among the most vulnerable in the hospital. We support ventilation strategies that help avoid lung injury while maximising gas exchange. Learn more about our solutions below:
