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.
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
If the test fails
Do it again with the checking of the connection and supply
Again if fails call the service engineer
