Hamilton ventilator

Ventilator provides complete life support for the patient with post-surgical and ARDS etc.

Intended for the use of positive pressure ventilation

Minimum tidal volume ventilation delivered  shall be equal to or greater than the 20 ml for adults patients and 2 ml for the infants /neonates

Check the ventilator with the resuscitation bag using the PEEPand high concentration oxygen.

Prechecking and Precautions

Do not use the exhaust port of the expiratory valve for the spirometry.

Do not use any liquid items on the Hamilton ventilator, no spillage or liquid item on the ventilator console

Avoid using flammable agents or material on the ventilator setup.

Don’t use the contaminated items, oil or grease on the ventilator.ventilator

Highly compressed oxygen together with flammable sources could lead to a spontaneous explosion.

Do not use the high-pressure hose for the ventilator pipelines and the gas hoses

Do not use the tubing with antistatic or electrically conducted tubing

In case of fire, stop the ventilation and disconnect all the accessories and disconnect from the electric circuit.

Ventilation safe protocol

Preoperational test

If the test fails

Do it again with the checking of the connection and supply

Again if fails call the service engineer

(S)CMV +/APVCMV-          synchronized controlled mandatory ventilation

SIMV +/APV SIMV         – synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation

Volume modes(adaptive pressure )

Combination of the pressure and volume targeted ventilation

Modes in Ventilator

Pressure modes –convetional pressure controlled modes of the ventilation

PCV +             pressure controlled ventilation

PSIMV+          pressure controlled synchronized intermittent ventilation

SPONT            spontaneous pressure supported ventilation

CPAP               controlled positive airway pressure

DUO PAP        dual positive airway pressure

APRV              airway pressure release ventilation

ASV                Adaptive support ventilation ( this is only for the adult’s patients )


Non invasive ventilations modes

NIV   Non invasive ventilation

NIV ST   Non invasive ventilation  spontaneous

nCPAP PS    neonatal modes nasal continuous positive airway pressure

Pressure in cmh2o

Mbar or hpa

1 mbar =1 hpa =1.016 cm h2o
