Dräger Primus® Infinity® Empowered
As an advanced anaesthesia machine Primus Infinity Empowered offers premium quality ventilation therapy and anaesthesia delivery. Due to its compact breathing system and integrated advanced gas monitoring it is optimally designed to perform minimal- and low-flow anaesthesia. In combination with Infinity Acute Care System patient monitor all relevant patient data are available at the point of care what contributes to increased worfklow efficiency and better patient outcome.
The Primus Infinity Empowered has a clearly structured user interface which supports a quick familiarisation process. This makes it easier for your staff to operate the device. The fully automated self-test safes you time for other meaningful activities. In emergency cases you can skip the self-test and get the device “ready in seconds” with full anaesthesia functionality.
The leak-tight and compact breathing system of Primus Infinity Empowered ensures a fast gas-exchange time even under extreme settings down to 200 ml fresh-gas flow. Thanks to heated components, the patient gas is optimally climatised and water build-up is significantly reduced. The optional Econometer guides the user to set the optimal fresh-gas flow, and it is a great help especially during minimal- and low-flow anaesthesia applications.
Delivering accurate tidal volume in neonatal ventilation is mandatory. The high-precision piston ventilator technology from the Primus Infinity Empowered can accurately deliver a tidal volume of down to 5 ml and allows the frequency setting of up to 100 breaths per minute. The CPAP pressure support ventilation mode faciliates spontaneous breathing during surgery. The Autoflow ventilation mode enables to deliver the set tidal volume with possible lowest pressure. Both modes enhance the application of protective ventilation settings during surgery which can improve patient outcome.
With Infinity ID accessories, Dräger has pioneered the use of RFID technology for clinical use in intensive care units and operating rooms to transform data into useful additional functionality for your daily clinical routine. Infinity ID accessories from Dräger do more than just fulfill their primary function by offering additional functionality. In combination with Primus Infinity Empowered the Infinity ID accessories can help you to simplify routine tasks, streamline workflow, and increase safety levels by checking incorrect circuit and soda lime canister connections and monitoring recommended replacement intervals for consumables.
