Respirators and oxygen concentrators
Respirators and oxygen concentrators play a vital role in the treatment of patients suffering from chronic respiratory failure. They provide immediate life support during the acute stage, when the patient is first admitted to hospital. They help the patients to breathe during their hospital stay until their condition is stabilized and they are able to return home. These types of equipment are also used for home care.
Batteries provide mobility
Until recently, this type of equipment needed constant mains power and was ‘hard-wired’ to the wall socket, which restricted patient mobility. But now, thanks to Saft batteries, a new portable generation of respirators and oxygen concentrators has emerged that offers much greater independence and freedom of movement.
Battery reliability is of course essential in this application, to maintain mandatory patient safety requirements. Saft has developed a range of lightweight battery solutions including:
These batteries help to ensure:
