New Generation of Portable Secretion Aspirators
Heraeus Med GmbH
Greater mobility and more convenience with the new generation of portable VENTA secretion aspirators.
As a new member of the globally active GETINGE Surgical Systems group and under the new name Hanau Med, Heraeus Med has developed the new generation of VENTA aspiration systems for the specific requirements in clinics, special medical practices, home care and nursing applications.
A total of four models will be available beginning in April 2003: VENTA Multi Care 16 and VENTA Multi Care 26 (with different suction capacities) and the corresponding battery-powered versions VENTA Carry Care 16 and VENTA Carry Care 26. All units rapidly and quietly suck away blood, secretion, vomit and serous liquids from natural or artificial body orifices; in addition, they are particularly suited to the nasal and oral bronchoaspiration.
With a flow rate of 16 litres freeflow/minute and a vacuum of up to – 0.8 bar, the two portable, electrically operated aspiration pumps VENTA MC 16 and VENTA CC 16 are ideally suited to short-term operation in the home care area, in outerclinical care, in old people’s and nursing homes, in medical practices and in the medical corps. The model CC 16 is equipped with a rechargeable battery and an integrated charging unit for connection to the 230 V mains network or an external 12 V DC power supply, for network-independent use worldwide. The integrated battery charger enables mains-supplied operation even during the electronically monitored charging procedure.
The extraordinary design in handbag format is strikingly new and equally functional. A clear control panel with ergonomic On/Off switch, hygienic film keypads and five LEDs for a detailed charge management (VENTA CC 16 only) facilitate your work, as does the integrated, transparent secretion collection jar with filling level indicator, which can be replaced and cleaned easily. The adjustment knob for infinitely variable suction power regulation, the large-surface, easily readable vacuum meter and two mechanical interfaces for equipment racks also increase the handling convenience. As usual at Heraeus Med, Hanau Med also provides top-notch workmanship and perfect hygiene conditions in this new generation of aspiration systems. An extensive range of accessories and a selection of modular overflow protection systems adapt to the respective cost structure.
The same quality characteristics apply to the two models VENTA MC 26 and VENTA CC 26, which are very suitable for continuous deployment in clinics, special medical practices and outerclinical care, featuring a high flow rate of 26 litres freeflow/minute and a vacuum of up to – 0.8 bar. Here too, the model CC 26 operates independently of the power supply system. A fold-up handle makes transport very easy, and a number of practical application sets allow a wide variety of uses.
