The Hallowell EMC Model 2002PRO is electronically controlled, time-cycled, pressure limited ventilator.
Electronic control-- Eliminates the substantial driving gas required to operate pneumatically controlled ventilators.
Time cycled-- Ensures consistently spaced breaths. The possibility of stacking breaths or auto-PEEP is eliminated by keeping the I:E ratio constant at 1:2. This means that regardless of the respiratory rate setting two-thirds of the breath will remain for expiration. The respiratory rate is adjustable from 6 - 40 breaths per minute (BPM).
Volume constant-- Ensures that each delivered breath will have essentially the same volume, independent of changes in animal patient compliance and airway resistance. The deliverable tidal volume (TV) range is from approximately 20 cc to 3,000 cc.
Pressure Limited-- Provides for animal patient safety by limiting the maximum working pressure (MWPL) to a user adjustable pressure range of 10 - 60 cm H2O.
Ventilators are equipped with dual airway pressure alarms that monitor and sound when the peak inspiratory pressure (PIP) of any breath either exceeds the preset maximum working pressure limit (MWPL); or fails to reach 6 cm H2O as in the case of a disconnect.
