Ventilators provide the lifesaving function of artificial breathing to accident victims and ICU patients when their respiratory systems fail, helping to prevent life-threatening situations. The HAMILTON-T1 is a transportable, intelligent ventilation system that automatically adjusts to the adult and pediatric patients’ needs. Its resilient and compactness combined with fast setup connectors enable adaptable portability while its hot swappable batteries, at-a-glance touchscreen and single knob operation provide uninterrupted ventilation. It runs from any power source and delivers mobile ventilation for patients as well as hassle-free usage by healthcare personnel in ambulances, helicopters, long distance jets, intra-hospital transport, and in the ICU, accompanying the patient at any place around the world.
