KRUUSE Moduflex Patient Circuit Alarm Assisted Ventilation Adjustment A KRUUSE Moduflex circuit alarm added to your Anaesthesia machine will alert you if the patient’s pressure approaches a dangerous level. When assisted ventilation is necessary, it is difficult to determine the airway pressure. Adding a circuit alarm to your Anaesthesia machine can reduce the risk of an elevated pressure. The alarm will alert you if the pressure approaches a dangerous level. The circuit alarm is adjustable, allowing you to set the pressure at a level, which is comfortable for you, (preset to 15 cm H2O). • • • • • Easy installation Standard 9 volt battery Can be installed on any brand of Anaesthesia machine Factory pre-set at 15cm H2O 5 year warranty (with the exception of the battery) KRUUSE Moduflex Scavenger Interface Ensures smooth and controlled suction when using e.g. the KRUUSE Moduflex evacuation ventilator (270382). Use of this scavenger interface ensures a constant suction that does not affect the patient’s access to anaesthetic gas. The scavenger interface can handle multiple connections concurrently, which means that it is not necessary to change connection when changing between e.g. a Bain system and a circle system. During surgery the unused gas should be evacuated outside of the building to avoid it being inhaled by your employees and patients. Connected to a gas evacuation ventilator, the scavenger interface controls the flow of suction and maintains the balance with the quantity of unused gas. If you don’t use a scavenger interface, you have to either adjust the flow of suction from the gas evacuation ventilator so it doesn’t draw up the gas intended for the patient, or you have to increase the gas flow. Cat. No 270372 Evacuation Valve If you happen to forget to re-open the evacuation valve after ventilating your patient, the circuit alarm will warn you at the approach of a dangerous level. Advantages of the KRUUSE Moduflex Scavenger Interface Precautions to ensure proper Functioning of the Gas Evacuation System The KRUUSE Moduflex scavenger interface is designed so that you don’t have to disconnect one system in order to connect another. Whether you use the Bain circuit adapter or the absorber, both systems remain connected thus avoiding a connection error which could leave the gas in the room. The interface also allows you to control the inhalation flow and avoid depletion of the breathing bag or an increase in the breathing resistance. We recommend one scavenger interface per veterinary Anaesthesia machine for an efficient evacuation system. Make sure the scavenger bag is not perforated. It is frequent to see cracks at the base of the evacuation bag connector. These bags tear easier than breathing bags since the Anaesthetic remains stagnant in the bag. Cat. No 270380 In the case of a defect in the ventilation system, the scavenger interface contains an automatic check valve that will evacuate excess pressure and protect the patient. If you are renovating and have opted to install a gas evacuation ventilator, you will need a scaveng
