6025 - Cat/Rabbit Ventilator

Cat/Rabbit Ventilator Cat/Rabbit Ventilator

The 6025 Cat/Rabbit Ventilator is a volume-controlled mechanical ventilator (according to Starling's ventilation method), designed for use with cats, rabbits and animals of similar size. It can be can be equipped with 50 or 100ml cylinder/piston assembly.

The 6025 drive consists of a variable speed geared motor linked by a novel variable stroke mechanism to easily interchangeable cylinder/piston assemblies. Their precisely regulated geared-motor speed provides the most accurate and reliable stroke rate control of any respirator available.

Motor speed is controlled by an electronic feedback-controlled drive, thus providing the most accurate and reliable stroke rate control of any respirator available. Electronic noise broadcasting is negligible, and the pumps are also quiet to the ear. The6025 can be equipped with 50 or 100ml cylinder/piston assembly.

The operation of the ventilator may be "paused" by an external TTL logic signal (optional feature). Synchronised START/STOP feature available as optional (series 6125).

“We have four of your respirators in our extended lab and they are wonderful - as is your service” Dr. Nicholas Price, Monash University

    Artificial ventilation, also called artificial respiration is any means of assisting or stimulating respiration in a subject which is not breathing or is not making sufficient respiratory effort on its own.

    Mechanical ventilation is a method to mechanically assist or replace spontaneous breathing: this involves a machine called a ventilator.
