Hamilton Medical’s transport ventilator, the T1, is now available for use by armed forces to safely accompany critical care patients in the air, on land, and at sea.
After successfully passing various environmental stress tests, the Hamilton-T1 was issued a NATO stock number (NSN 6515-01-648-5814) and is now officially available in the US military ECAT catalog, according to the company.
The device has been equipped with special features for the US Armed Forces, including a night vision option and optional NBC filter adaptor. The night vision option allows the T1 to safely be used in the dark without interfering with night vision devices. The optional NBC filter adapter provides a NATO standard thread for attaching a standard NBC filter canister.
In addition, the standardized transport and storage case for the device is lightweight but unbreakable, and keeps the ventilator in pristine condition even in the most punishing environments.
The Hamilton-T1 can operate in temperatures from -15ºC to +50ºC, tolerates humidity levels from 5% to 95%, can be used at altitudes of up to 25,000 ft, and is able to withstand blowing dust or pouring rain (IP24 ingress protection).
The device offers all the conventional and advanced ventilation modes and monitoring features expected from a high-end ICU ventilator at the bedside. To ensure safe and lung-protective ventilation even under challenging circumstances, the Intelligent Ventilation mode ASV (Adaptive Support Ventilation) constantly adapts automatically to the patient’s condition to keep the patient within defined target ranges.
Standard ventilator settings can be stored in up to three quick start-up scenarios to comply with military standard operating procedures and clinical practice guidelines. This ensures standardized ventilator care, improves patient safety, and simplifies ventilator management even for non-expert medical personnel.
