Johann Heinrich Dräger’s inventive spirit led him to tinker and refine until, in 1889, he held the first reduction valve for carbon dioxide in his hands. In a five-part video series, Dräger moments show what has set Dräger apart for over 130 years: the inventive spirit of our founder, who enabled the control of anaesthesia when he produced the Lubeca valve in 1889. Our employees, who work every day to turn technology into Technology for Life. The mine rescue workers in Canada and North America who have proudly called themselves Draegermen for over 100 years. Our customers, whom we care for all over the world.
