Electronic Gas Blender
Providing a continuous comparison of actual and set values
In the Electronic Gas Blender, actual and set values are continuously compared.
The actual value is measured by two independent sensors and an alarm is triggered if a deviation between the two values is detected.
The remote control of the Electronic Gas Blender can be used tochange the set values for Air + O2, FiO2 and CO2, from gas flow to blood flow. The operator is made aware of the actual values exceeding or dropping below the set values by acoustic and visual signals.
The Electronic Gas Blender is available in three different versions:
- Electronic Gas Blender (10 l/min) for adult perfusion
- Electronic Gas Blender (5 l/min) for pediatric perfusion
- Electronic Gas Blender (2 l/min) for infant/neonate perfusion
