Helix Portable Ventilator - Adult/Paediatric

This lightweight portable gas-driven ventilator uses minimal quantities of oxygen either from a cylinder or oxygen concentrator, alternatively it can be driven by the optional air compressor. Uniquely, there is no oxygen wastage as this is recycled to the patient. It’s ideal for use in an Intensive Care Unit and is widely used in field hospitals and outreach situations too. Easily transportable in its tough Peli case, this double-award-winning ventilator can be used as standalone equipment or with Diamedica’s range of portable anaesthesia machines.
