Unique design, compact and reliable
- Quiet operation
- Negligible R.F. broadcasting
- Impeccable finishing
The “quality-first” animal ventilators from Ugo Basile feature unique designs to ensure accuracy, durability and quietness of operation unequalled by any other ventilator. This new ventilator from Ugo Basile is ideal for use with mice and is also suitable for small birds and perinatal rats.
The valve mechanism on all of these ventilators features nearly zero dead space and superb durability with no leakage. Expired air may be channeled for analysis when used with anesthetic gases.
Principle of Operation
A unique variable stroke linkage mechanism, very similar in principle to the one used in Basile’s larger respirators, operates the piston. The reciprocating motion is adjusted and transmitted to the piston by rods and articulated joints only, which leads to minimal wear, no backlash, silent operation and exact stroke reproducibility.
Easily Adjustable Stroke Volume
The stroke volume is adjustable whether the ventilator is on or off. For the most convenient and accurate stroke volume control available, the knob and scale remain stationary, even when the piston is in motion. The valve mechanism on these ventilators features nearly zero dead space and superb durability with no leakage. Expired air may be channeled for analysis and/or recycled, when used with anesthetic gases.
Digital Stroke Rate Display
The stroke rate (breaths per minute) is feedback controlled from 50 to 300 strokes/min and displayed on an LED digital readout. A connection square of four ports (pictured at right) include intake, out to animal, return from animal and exhaust.
