A5 Advantage

Anesthesia System

Scalable functionality and decision support

The A5 Advantage System offers modular scalability with advanced ventilation modes and digital technology with optional integrated gas analysis, capnography, and spirometry loops for effective care across a wide range of patient types from neonate to bariatrics. Low flow decision support is available with the Optimizer™.  Lung protective strategies are supported with APRV and recruitment maneuver capabilities. An intuitive user interface with touchscreen display facilitates changes in ventilation modes and settings by eliminating deep menus, control knobs, and dedicated buttons. Built-in safety features, ample storage, and large workspace enhance workflow with accessory mounting options in an award-winning ergonomic design. Direct HL7 data output provides the industry standard connectivity for anesthesia information management systems (AIMS) and electronic medical records (EMR) reducing the expense associated with data integration. The scalable A5 Advantage System is an ideal choice for hospital standardization and cost-effective anesthesia management.

Optimizer™

When used together with the Integrated Gas Module, clinicians benefit from the low flow decision support
tools of the optimizer suite:

  • Manage intraoperative fresh gas dynamics
  • Visualize real-time intra-case agent usage
  • Quantify actual end of case agent consumption values
