Reliable And Accurate Anaesthesia
The Universal Anaesthesia Machine (UAM) delivers safe anaesthesia in any hospital, including those
where shortages of compressed medical gases and unreliable electricity disable conventional machines.
Using a low-resistance vaporizer and operating at ambient pressure, the UAM automatically matches
patient demand to the supply of anaesthetic gas. It generates its own oxygen using an integrated oxygen
concentrator delivering up to 10 litres per minute. In addition, the UAM provides standard connectors
and flow control for cylinder and pipeline oxygen, and can also connect to a portable source of oxygen.
If no source of oxygen is available the UAM automatically draws in room air to meet patient demand. A
real-time monitor displays the oxygen content of inspired air, adding a crucial layer of safety.
No Compressed Gas Or Electricity Required
A built-in oxygen concentrator provides up to ten
litres per minute of oxygen. Standard cylinder
and pipeline connections are included. If power
and compressed gases are unavailable the UAM
draws-in room air, continually delivering safe
anaesthesia. The ventilator is electrically-driven,
features a six hour battery backup, and does not
require compressed gas to function.
Integrated Safety
The oxygen monitor displays inspired oxygen
and runs up to ten hours on battery backup. The
ventilator alarms include out of range volume and
pressure readings and breathing circuit disconnect.
The patient monitor features standard vital signs
Commitment to Training and Service
Every UAM comes with on-site clinical and
biomedical training. Regional service engineers,
spare parts and Internet and phone support
are available to keep your UAM calibrated and
The optional ventilator provides IPPV automatically. It is electrically-driven and does not require
compressed gas. Internal batteries provide up to six hours of backup operation. The ventilator operates in
volume and pressure control modes and can be used during spontaneous ventilation to display pressure
and flow measurements.
A vital signs monitor measuring pulse oximetry, ECG, blood pressure and temperature is also available.
The UAM is CE-certified and manufactured in an ISO-qualified factory. It is compatible with standard
anaesthesia accessories such as breathing circuits and gas scavenging systems.
The UAM comes with a two year warranty, and is designed for easy maintenance and field service.
Gradian provides on-site biomedical technician training, access to in-country biomedical engineers and
rapid access to spare parts and accessories. We maintain regional spare parts depots and a network of
local, factory-certified engineers to ensure a fast response to any problem. All of our user manuals and
service documentation are published on-line as part of our commitment to keeping your UAM in excellent
working condition.
