The New SLE6000

The SLE6000’s specialist lung-protective features include SLE’s own High Frequency Oscillation Ventilation (HFOV) using proprietary bidirectional jets, Pressure Support Ventilation (PSV), Volume Targeted Ventilation (VTV) and a choice of non-invasive ventilation modes (NIV) including High Flow Therapy.

SLE specialises in infant ventilation and as with all of our ventilators the SLE6000 is optimised for the smallest of patients. Rest assured that the SLE6000 will keep pace with the ever changing needs of babies - whilst being safe, reliable and easy to use.

High Frequency Oscillation Ventilation
The SLE6000 is the fourth generation oscillator from SLE. With SLE’s unique valveless technology using high-speed bidirectional jets, it ensures a powerful, effective and reliable HFO delivery.

Volume Targeted Ventilation
Volume Targeted Ventilation (VTV) is a lung protective mode of ventilation that can reduce the risk of serious complications such as BPD, pneumothorax, atelectasis and hypocarbia [3]. In VTV mode, the SLE6000 monitors and targets the expiratory tidal volume (Vte) and can compensate for an ET tube leak of up to 50%.

Non-Invasive Ventilation
The SLE6000 is unique in allowing for the choice of either dual or single-limb non-invasive ventilation, extending the interface options available to medical staff. NIV can then be applied using a nasal mask or nasal prongs. Servo-controlled flow compensates for varying leaks and results in a more consistent pressure requiring fewer staff interventions.

High Flow Oxygen Therapy
High flow oxygen therapy delivers breathing gas through a simple, loose-fitting nasal cannula that is more comfortable for the baby. It can provide on-going respiratory support throughout the infant’s recovery process. High flow oxygen therapy is available as an optional upgrade on the SLE6000, enabling the provision of even more comprehensive care.

SLE5000

The smallest thing does matter...
There are still some neonates who cannot be adequately ventilated with even the most sophisticated conventional ventilation. Indeed, using conventional ventilation with higher rates and airway pressures has often led to an increased incidence of volutrauma and lung tissue damage. High Frequency Oscillation (HFO) has been shown to overcome this problem whilst still allowing excellent gaseous exchange.

A proven technique
Developed in cooperation with nurses and doctors, the SLE5000 uses a unique valveless system that gives both a manageable range of HFO parameters plus the ability to have ‘active exhalation’. Of course, the SLE5000 still has all of the conventional ventilation modes meaning that it can be used on virtually any baby in the NICU.

User Interface
SLE has always worked hard to make our ventilators easier to use. Essential functions are never more than a couple of button pushes away. Our own research has shown that users find it much easier to use a ventilator if there are fewer sub-menus. By reducing the number of menus and sub-menus the SLE5000 is even easier to use when time is critical. The SLE5000 has a high resolution colour touch-screen that is your interface to all the ventilator controls and functions, but in addition allows you to access many new features including trends and dynamic loops.

The SLE5000 also features parameter presetting, meaning that you can choose a ventilation mode and set up all parameter values before accepting these and confirming the mode change.

Features
  • The ability to preset parameters in all modes of operation
  • Powerful HFO with active expiration to cover a wide range of patients
  • Full colour, total touch-screen operation
  • Integral flow monitoring measuring lung mechanics and displaying of loops and waveforms
  • Trending of measured parameters
  • Standard patient circuit for all modes including HFO
  • Unique, patented valveless technology
  • Integral battery with up to 60 minutes operating capability
  • Software based, allowing for upgrading to versions with new or improved functions
  • Very quiet operation HFOV, yet with the performance to successfully provide HFO to both the smallest pre-terms and the largest infants.
  • Same patient circuit is used for conventional and HFO ventilation, minimising risk of lung de-recruitment.
  • Proximal Hot Wire flow sensor technology ensures sensitivity to even the tiniest of patient breathing efforts, and control of tidal volumes as small as 2ml.
  • Volume targeting capability to limit and monitor delivered tidal volumes as part of the Lung Protective Strategy.
  • Colour display of respiratory waveforms and key respiratory parameters, in addition to 24 hour trending data.
  • Simple upgrade capability to keep up to date with latest software and modality enhancements.
  • Easy to set up, easy to use, easy to train, easy to clean.

SLE4000

The total solution for conventional infant ventilation
SLE is a world leader in the design and manufacture of neonatal ventilators. Years of ventilation experience have given the company an understanding of the challenges facing clinicians when caring for the tiniest and most critical babies.

The SLE4000 ventilator is the benchmark in conventional infant/paediatric ventilators. Touch screen control and a comprehensive range of ventilation modalities and monitoring modes make the SLE4000 the choice ventilator for today's demanding NICU environment.

The knowledge and experience gained during years of development is evident in the SLE4000 ventilator; the result of SLE’s ongoing commitments to innovation, competency and care.

Modes include: CPAP, CMV+ TTV, PTV, PSV, SIMV+ TTV + PSV
  • Ability to preset parameters in all modes of operation
  • Full colour, total touch-screen operation
  • Integral flow monitoring measuring lung mechanics and displaying of loops and waveforms
  • Trending of measured parameters
  • Standard patient circuit for all modes (Except with NO therapy, where an adaptor is required)
  • Unique, patented valveless technology
  • Integral battery with up to 60 minutes operating capability
  • Software based, allowing for upgrading to versions with new or improved functions
Other features
  • Proximal Hot Wire flow sensor technology ensures sensitivity to even the tiniest of patient breathing efforts, with control of tidal volumes as small as 2ml

SLE1000

A breath of fresh air
The SLE1000 is a revolutionary CPAP machine: a servo-controlled CPAP unit with intelligent alarms and modern electronics.

The SLE1000 incorporates a complete rethink of the way CPAP is delivered.

Using modern technology, it allows the user to set the desired pressure, and make the driver do all the hard work of adjusting the flow.

The new SLE1000 is designed to be easier to set up and to use. The servo-controlled flow ensures a more consistent pressure even when the baby is moving a lot. Using computer-controlled feedback means that the Work of Breathing (WoB) is kept to a minimum and can cope with varying leaks.

Staff are finding that once they’ve set the CPAP level, the machine can accurately track it, leaving them to get on with caring for the baby and not spending all of their time adjusting the equipment.

The illustration below shows the difference between the SLE1000 (with servo-controlled CPAP) and a conventional fixed flow CPAP.

Features include:
  • Easy-set controller gives access to all user-settable parameters
  • Servo-controlled flow assures more comfortable support to the baby
  • Integral apnoea monitoring
  • Full range of graded alarms - Smart alarm system automatically adjusts primary parameters
  • Automatic leak compensation
  • Electronic Oxygen blending and flow control
  • Automatic Oxygen calibration reduces set-up time and gives accurate and reliable FiO2 readings
  • High visibility display and 360º alarm bar
  • Fewer nuisance alarms
  • Long life integral battery (minimum of 4 hours)
  • Swivel gas inlet for a variety of mounting options
