WEINMANN Emergency Medical Technology GmbH + Co. KG (Hamburg, Germany) exhibited MEDUVENT Standard, one of the smallest turbine-driven ventilators in the world, at this year’s Arab Health, the largest healthcare exhibition in the Middle East. MEDUVENT Standard features innovative turbine technology that maintains ventilation even without an external oxygen supply and also boasts of a flexible oxygen supply.

WEINMANN develops innovative medical devices for ventilation and defibrillation, including mobile system solutions for emergency medicine, transport and disaster medicine. At Arab Health 20202, WEINMANN exhibited its new MEDUVENT Standard ventilator that works without oxygen and can ventilate a patient completely without an external gas supply, thanks to its innovative turbine technology. MEDUVENT Standard offers a quick and safe way to start ventilation by providing the option of selecting an emergency mode or entering the patient’s height. Operation is amazingly uncomplicated and easy – allowing the user to switch between patient groups (adult, child, or infant) with only a few steps.

In addition to the manual ventilation mode that allows the use of MEDUVENT Standard instead of a bag-valve mask, the IPPV (Intermittent Positive Pressure Ventilation) mode frequently used in emergency medical services can also be employed. Non-invasive spontaneous breathing support can be applied quickly, easily, and on-the-spot using the CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) mode. If the patient is to be ventilated synchronously with his or her spontaneous breathing efforts, the optionally available SIMV or S-IPPV mode is used. With an average battery runtime of 8 hours on battery power, MEDUVENT Standard is especially suitable for use in air rescue service or in disaster areas. MEDUVENT Standard features a standard, easy-to-replace hygiene filter to protect patients, staff, and the device from contamination by viruses or bacteria.
