Description

The second generation Simplified Automated Ventilator (SAVe II) is designed for Combat Medics where size, weight and extreme ease of use are paramount. The SAVe II improves triage capabilities and elevates the standard of care in the pre-hospital environment. By simply selecting the casualty’s height, the device dials in a preset tidal volume based on the patient’s Ideal Body Weight.  This helps reduce operator error and eliminate the guesswork associated with bagging in a high stress environment. Highly portable and extremely easy to use, the SAVe II provides lifesaving air normoventilation 2 for up to 10 hours. It serves as a bridging device between rescue breathing and a full-functioning transport ventilator during all Phases of Care. At just 2.7 pounds the SAVe II isn’t only the easiest to use compressor driven ventilator it’s the smallest.

Exacerbated shock, reduced cardiac output and aggravated traumatic brain injury are all complications associated with hyperventilation, making it a “silent killer”.1 United States Army Institute of Surgical Research (ISR) data show that 35% of the 2,699 combat casualties (945 war-fighters) that died en route to the hospital had a traumatic brain injury (TBI). These same 945 war-fighters represent 20.5 percent of all combat casualties from 2001-2011.3 Based upon data presented in an American Heart Association (AHA) study by Aufderheide, et al., 100% of these casualties would have been hyperventilated using current manual ventilation devices.4
