Ventilator/ Respirator, specially built for respiration of mice, rats and guinea pigs and general inhalation anaesthesia with an endotracheal canula. Standard the UNO ventilator is equipped with a connection for Anaesthetic gas (mixture), controlls for Frequency, volume and minimum/ maximum pressure, a "circle" system and the possibility for P.E.E.P. settings (f.i. with open thorax surgery).
It is also possible to place the animal under a microscope or in a Stereotakt or waterbath because of the ± 80cm long flexible hoses and endotracheal-canula connection. The unit needs a gas supply (Air, O2 or mixture).
Tidal Volume setting at the ventilator (without counter pressure): 0,1ml - 24ml
Extremely small dead volume
Effective volume (with counter pressure & endotracheal tube): 0,0ml - 12ml* *(depending on size of the endotracheal tube)
Frequency (resporatory rate): 15 - 200/ min
Minimum and maximum pressure setting
Pressure settings:≥ 0 mbar - up
P.E.E.P. adjustment available
Sinus pressure pattern following the natural breathing pattern of awake mice and rats (insp./expiration = 1:1). Because of the design of the unit, there is no danger of peak pressure in the lungs of the animals during ventilation (compared with valve operated ventilators)
Circle System with CO2 absorber
To be easily connected to a flowmeter/ vaporizer unit
Distance between UMV and animal position: upto 1 meter
With extended gas supply- and gas exhaust tubing - the connection of the intubation tube is projected on a flexible supply- and exhaust tubing (which is part of the "Circle" system).
