Drager Perseus® A500 Anaesthesia Workstations

The Perseus A500 lets you achieve high-quality ventilation for individualised ventilation strategies, always facilitating and supporting the patient’s spontaneous breathing. Lung recruitment functions provide manoeuvres to automate various operating sequences. You can adjust and individually control these at any time. Because of the optimised breathing system, changes in the gas concentration reach the patient more readily, especially during low- and minimal-flow anaesthesia.

The workflow-support features of the Perseus A500 are designed to streamline and simplify routine tasks. The time-controlled, fully automatic self-test also includes innovative technologies like an Oo real-gas test and automatic recognition of any incorrect connected breathing hoses. Other advantages include seamless monitoring transfer from bedside to the OR with a single monitor. The clinical situation oriented emergency start-up ventilation functions , incl. APRV, work even when the machine is switched off. The data analysis function enables an straightforward export of data by using a USB stick. In addition, the Perseus A500 uses RFID technology and can inform you when the individual Infinity ID accessories need to be replaced. Because of the many mounting possibilities for the holder arm and monitors, the Perseus A500 can be configured to meet individual needs. The variety of many remote service options, facilitates you to implement individualised remote maintenance concepts.

The Perseus A500 is compatible with Vapor 2000 and Vapor 3000 with auto-exclusion connection system. Combined with the VaporView option (and Vapor 3000/D-Vapor 3000), Perseus A500 provides you sophisticated oxygen and anaesthetic agent level and xMAC prediction technology. This allows you to administer low- and minimal-flow anaesthesia more intuitively.

The Perseus A500 contains many features that significantly improve workplace ergonomics. It has a spacious, well-lit work surface with plenty of storage space for consumable material. In addition, the optimally positioned central brake, suction unit and anaesthetic gas scavenging system allow you to use the Perseus A500 easily and intuitively. The integrated breathing system can be opened without tools and prepared for reprocessing

Despite the Perseus A500’s completely new design, the user interface utilizes the familiar Drager operating system featuring the same rotary knob you know from other Drager venitlators and anaesthesia devices. Therefore using the Perseus A500 is as straightforward as with any other Drager medical device. The sleek, modern design makes the machine into an extremely flexible workspace that helps you simplify your workflow while maintaining the highest quality of therapy.

The Perseus A500 has been awarded two major design prizes: the ‘iF Product Design Award 2013’ in the category of medicine / health + care, and the “Red Dot Design Award 2013: Best of the Best” in the category of life sciences and medicine. Both awards count among the most important international design competitions and not only rate design quality, but also aspects such as safety, ergonomics, functionality, degree of innovation and, not least, environmental compatibility.
