Dräger has received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA for its Evita V600, V800, and Babylog VN800, ventilators.

Dräger has developed an operating concept that makes device orientation easier and provides clear user guidance. The user is guided through the individual menus with larger icons, important functions at the top menu level, and a clear, color-coordinated screen design. The lower number of colors for the screen elements and the reduced use of signal colors enable clear, smooth navigation. The bright screen background also minimizes disruptive reflections of ambient light. Clearly structured device checks help safely prepare for the next patient.

Dräger Evita V600 and V800

The Evita V800 and Evita 600 combine high performance ventilation with an aesthetic design enabling quick and efficient operation – from the first onset of lung protective ventilation to the integration of a patient care-centered intensive care workplace.

Dräger Babylog VN800

The Dräger Babylog VN800 comes with a new user interface and design, which makes it easier and safer for clinicians to operate. The neonatal ventilator supports lung and brain protective ventilation modes throughout the whole respiratory cycle. It facilitates a smooth and seamless transition from O2 therapy to non-invasive ventilation to invasive ventilation and vice versa. Dräger Babylog ventilators can be easily integrated in a developmental care-friendly workplace.

“We developed the Evita and Babylog family of devices to meet customer demand for effective and safe mechanical ventilation that is both easy to use and cost-conscious,” said Steve Menet, Senior Vice President of Sales for Hospital Solutions at Draeger, Inc. “This launch takes us a step closer to our goal of providing added value for clinical personnel and patients while simultaneously optimizing costs in the hospital.”

Proven ventilation technology protects patients

Over one hundred years of Dräger experience in ventilation flowed into the technology. It is the basis for efficient therapy options, which can simultaneously improve patient safety. The early support of spontaneous breathing can also help the patient regain mobility more quickly.

Infection prevention requirements considered

To maintain the infection management chain in the hospital, medical devices must support the requirements of hygienically sensitive areas in hospitals. As a result, the new Dräger ventilators not only have a rounded design with few edges and overhangs, but they also have surfaces that can be effectively disinfected. The glass touchscreen on the devices, as an almost seamless screen, also supports the daily hygiene routine at the intensive care workstation.
