Dräger Perseus® A500 - Anaesthesia Workstation
Combine proven ventilation technology with the latest refinements in ergonomics and systems integration with an advanced anaesthesia platform designed together with experts from around the world to streamline your anaesthesia workflow.
Advanced, economical ventilation technology
The Perseus A500 gives you quality turbine ventilation for ICU-like capabilities that allows the patient to breath spontaneously at any time. Equipped with the fastest breathing system Dräger has to offer, changes of gas concentration reach the patient faster, especially in low and minimal flow settings. The Perseus A500 is compatible with our Vapor 2000/3000 vaporizers.
Enhanced workplace ergonomics
The Perseus A500 is loaded with features that provide real improvements in workplace ergonomics. A generous, well-lit documentation space, ample storage room for consumables and the intelligent placement of things like the brake lever, suctioning unit and the anaesthetic agent scavenging system make working with the Perseus A500 easy and intuitive. The integrated breathing system can be accessed and processed without the need for special tools.
Flexible workflow support
The workflow support features of the Perseus A500 are designed to streamline and simplify your routine. These include timer-based, fully automatic self-testing, seamless monitoring transfer from bedside to the OR with a single monitor and ventilation capabilities even when the unit is not under power. It's also flexible, offering you a choice of mounts for arms and monitors, letting you configure the Perseus A500 to best suit your needs.
The user interface utilizes the familiar Dräger operating system featuring the same rotary knob you know from other Dräger venitlators and anaesthesia platforms. Learning to use the Perseus A500 is therefore as straightforward as with any other Dräger medical device. The sleek, modern design is a comfortable, inviting place to spend your shift while providing state-of-the-art care for your patients.
Prediction of inspiratory and expiratory concentrations of volatile anaesthetics
In combination with the Option Vapor View (and Vapor 3000 / D-Vapor 3000), the Dräger Perseus A500 gives you sophisticated oxygen and anaesthetic agent level prediction technology, letting you perform low and minimal flow anaesthesia with even more confidence. The Perseus A500 also incorporates RFID technology, alerts you if an erroneous hose connection is made and reminds you when it’s time to exchange RFID-equipped system components.
The Perseus A500 has been awarded two major design awards: the "iF product design award 2013" and the "red dot design award 2013: best of the best". Both awards count among the most important international design competitions and not only rate design quality, but also aspects such as safety, ergonomics, functionality, degree of innovation and, not least, environmental compatibility.
