"It's been over 15 years since I made the initial sketches for a large animal ventilator. After 3 years of steady, serious work on the project in collaboration with Keith Simpson and Vetronic Services of the UK, Tafonius is now available.
Tafonius promises to be a large animal machine you will never need to replace. It is constructed almost entirely of stainless steel, aluminum, brass and plastic. Its breathing gas delivery system is capable of generating any inspiratory or expiratory waveform, patterns and sequences imaginable. No more will a new machine be required to implement new modes of ventilation, all that will be needed are software upgrades. You will find this machine like no other for ease of use, ease of cleaning, accuracy, strength and economy. Tafonius sports features such as : PEEP and CPAP delivery, integrated monitoring, data collection and much much more."
