THE SAV03 is a mains-powered, pressure cycled ventilator designed by vets for use on intubated animals up to 10kg in weight. Using the incoming gas from your anaesthetic machine, the SAV03 controls the gas delivered to the patient in the inspiratory phase until a set airway pressure is reached, at which point the patient is allowed to exhale. A user-defined delay then elapses before inspiration begins again and the cycle repeats. By using pressure cycled ventilation it is easy to ventilate even very small animals safely. The peak airway pressure can be adjusted to control the depth of respiration. This airway pressure is shown on a clear bright digital display together with valve status indicators for instant visual feedback on the state of your patient. The SAV03 can be safely used in mammals, birds and reptiles for procedures lasting from minutes to hours.
