World's 1st 3D ICU Ventilator Launched

Trivitron, in association with Hamilton Medical AG, a Swiss manufacturer of 'intelligent ventilators' launched Hamilton G5, world's first 3D ICU ventilator in India. The new Hamilton G5 ICU ventilator is focused on improved user interface and high patient safety.

Hamilton G5 with a unique ventilation cockpit is designed for simplified operations and monitoring. The new ventilator scores better in comparison to the conventional modes due to its user-friendly and simple operations. Its innovative ventilation cockpit's dynamic lung displays real time tidal volume, lung compliance, resistance and patient activity in synchrony with actual breaths irrespective of lung mechanics.

Suitable for infants, paediatrics and adult patients, it has an integrated autopilot that automatically applies lung protective strategies through intuitive operation and monitoring, thereby improving patient safety and reducing error chances. It works on a new concept of Adaptive Support Ventilation (ASV)—reportedly used for 98 per cent of the ventilatory time of critically ill patients—which is more responsive than conventional modes in adapting to the patient's breathing activity. ASV is also popular as it requires fewer user interactions and gives fewer alarms. The product also has an automated P/V tool that helps in finding the best PEEP, based on respiratory mechanics.

"At Trivitron, our critical care division has partnered with some of the biggest international brands to bring home the latest and best available technology from across the world," said Ravi Srinivasan, General Manager, Trivitron Critical Care.

Graeme D A'Court, Director, Hamilton Medical Asia operations, said "To succeed in a business like ours, it’s important to identify the right partner and share a cohesive relationship. For Hamiliton, India is a very important market. With favorable Government norms and high consumption capacity of the country, we look forward to bring in more technology and products."

Trivitron has been associated with Hamilton for a decade in India and has promoted over 700 ventilators. Hamilton G5 is the first-age 3D ventilator in the country and is now available commercially.

Mobile To Revolutionize Healthcare In Korea

Korea's ubiquitous healthcare system has the potential to provide cheaper and smarter ways to manage and care for patients suffering from age-related chronic diseases. In the ubiquitous healthcare system (U-Healthcare System), sensor devices for measuring a bio signal or environment information communicate with the mobile system for collecting bio signals and environment information by wireless personal area network.

A number of applications are under development since the announcement of Korea "U-Healthcare System". This national project promising anytime, anywhere healthcare has caught the imagination of the Korean bio-industry. As the mobile healthcare system gets commercialized we will get to see more applications like the one in the picture here.

The one shown in the picture is a prototype of a mobile phone, which has a glucose monitoring function via a protein chip integrated into the device. It has the capability to transmit the data to the physician via Internet.
