|A User-Friendly Heart-Lung Machine|
HL 20 provides the complex technology needed for modern heart-lung surgery while maintaining simplicity: All supervisory and warning functions are on one panel. One knob adjusts all settings except the pump speed. The pump function is dedicated by name, not by location, and the assigned function of the pump is displayed on its front panel. All alarms and errors are indicated both acoustically and visually. A single button is used to silence all alarms. A remote control for the Heater-Cooler Unit HCU 30 is built-in. Patient temperature can be monitored and controlled without diverting the operator's attention. A flat screen display monitor provides graphical and functional status information at a glance.
Safe and Reliable
If the power supply fails, a fully automatic battery backup system will cut in automatically and run the entire system for time sufficient to finish most surgical procedures. All pumps and modules operate on a low 24 Volt voltage for increased patient and operator safety. All electrical connections are inside HL 20; there are no protruding or interfering cables to be broken, tangled or inadvertently unplugged. The system performs an extensive self-test at power-up, then continuously monitors its vital functions during operation.
A wide range of configurations to match every need
The HL 20 console is constructed of stainless steel and easily manoeuvred by means of a side guard and four stable castors, two with total lock and two with direction lock. The HL 20 can be arranged in several configurations. All controls and monitors are run from a single panel, which can be mounted to the left of, right of, or over the pumps. Pump functions can be renamed or relocated instantly without reconnection of a single cable.
Comprehensive and safe control
HL 20 allows accurate measurement of up to four pressures and up to four temperatures. It also offers two safety protection systems to prevent air entering the extracorporeal circulation: Capacitive level sensor and Ultrasonic micro bubble air detector.
Roller Pump Modules
The design of the HL 20 peristaltic roller pumps offers precision, durability, versatility and convenience in handling. All pumps run quietly and smoothly on safe low-voltage power supplied by the console. There are no cables to connect. Due to their compact size and low weight, the pumps are easily removed from and reinstalled onto the console simply by lifting or placing the module onto the guided position.Read More
