Hoffrichter Carat I Ventilator Package
The Hoffrichter CARAT I Ventilator Machine is intended for ventilation of patients
which are not completely dependent on mechanical
ventilation. The device is suitable for ventilation
of adults as well as of children with a tidal volume
of 50 ml and higher. CARAT I has been designed specifically
for use in home care but is also applicable for
use in hospitals.
Ventilation is either pressure controlled or volume
controlled and is ensured by setting one of the
ventilation modes listed below:
PCV – Pressure Controlled Ventilation
or Pressure Controlled Assisted Ventilation
• PSV –
Pressure Supported Ventilation
• SIMV –
Synchronous Intermittent Mandatory Ventilation
• VCV –
Volume Controlled Ventilation or Volume Controlled
Both invasive ventilation (e.g. via tracheostoma)
and non-invasive ventilation (via a ventilation
mask) are possible. CARAT I provides the technical
features required for operation with a single
line patient circuit.
The system can be connected to a low-pressure
gas source for ventilation with an increased oxygen
concentration. In addition, it is also possible
to combine CARAT I with a humidifier.
CARAT I is a medical device
and may only be used if prescribed by a physician
and under a physician’s responsibility.
