Evita Infinity V500 Benefits
Setting new trends in ventilation
The Evita Infinity V500 is a highly advanced ventilation unit for use in acute care respiratory support for adult, pediatric and infant use. Delivering high-performance ventilation capabilities, comprehensive monitoring, and effective treatment functions, the Evita Infinity V500 is the ideal choice for respiratory care clinicians and intensivists alike.
A wide range of treatment options enables you to manage the needs of virtually any acutely ill patient. These options include:
Low flow PV Loop maneuver
QuickSet® Pressure and I: E Link
Automated, knowledge-based weaning with SmartCare®/PS
This system helps you successfully manage one of the most common issues in non-invasive ventilation, which is patient-interface leakage. The Evita Infinity V500 recognizes and compensates for leakage quickly by adjusting both inspiratory trigger and termination points. Therefore, optimal synchrony is maintained.
Variable PS generates random adjustments to the level of inspiratory pressure support. This variation simulates the naturally occurring variations of biological systems such as breathing.
High-performance ventilation during transport – critical patients require diagnostic testing outside of the ICU. The Evita Infinity V500 is capable of maintaining high-level therapy outside of the ICU without compromise.
With the optional GS500, the Evita Infinity V500 is equipped with a source of compressed air. The optional PS500 power supply provides independence from AC electricity.
The mobile trolley can also be adapted to carry oxygen cylinders for the complete fulfillment of transport requirements.
The monitoring screen of the Evita Infinity V500 utilizes an omnidirectional alarm bar which can easily be seen from any point within the patient’s room. This allows for easier visualization of patient conditions, thus increasing safety in the ICU.The user interface has a multitude of output ports, including USB, RS232, DVI, and Ethernet. This allows for a high degree of flexibility when connecting to other interfaced devices. The standard Medibus protocols are easily adapted by monitoring and information companies alike.
With a few easy steps, the ventilator and patient data are easily downloadable to a USB stick for follow-up or research endeavors.

APRV Auto Release
Dräger’s APRV AutoRelease feature automatically optimizes Tlow to terminate expiration at an adjustable percentage of peak expiratory flow. This allows for the maintenance of end-expiratory lung volume and effective CO2 removal. When faced with changing respiratory mechanics and expiratory flow patterns, the Auto Release feature reacts accordingly.
Designed with the clinician in mind, the Evita Infinity V500 was created to streamline workflow, as well as provide sophisticated ventilation with simple easy-to-use features such as:
SmartCare®/PS- incorporates an automated knowledge-based weaning protocol with the flexibility to individualize care through configurable patient parameters.
Smart Pulmonary View- transforms raw patient data into useful visual information at the bedside. This helps reduce the cognitive workload of ICU staff and rapidly alerts clinicians to changes in patients’ pulmonary status.
Accessible instructions for use – enables the clinician to access instructions for use through the user interface screen. This allows for bedside assistance when needed most.
The Evita Infinity V500 is designed to meet the needs of small community hospitals and large university centers alike. The scalable design allows clinicians to adjust ventilation features to changing institutional requirements.
The user interface can be configured in a variety of different means; from simple to the most complex patient cases. This includes numerical measurements, graphical waveforms, and trended data.
As additional features become available, the Evita Infinity V500 ventilation system can be updated through software and hardware upgrades, thus, protecting your initial investment now and in the future.
Combining a system of automatic ex-communication from mechanical ventilation, visualization of respiratory functions and a system of radio frequency tags (RFID), the V500 is a smart choice. SmartCare® / PS combines an automatic, knowledge-based weaning system with mechanical ventilation with the flexibility of individual therapy through the configuration of weaning parameters. Smart Pulmonary View real-time visualizes breathing function. By transforming data into user-friendly visual images, this option helps reduce staff workloads. Equipped with RFID-based Infinity ID technology, the V500 is ready to use the appropriate Dräger accessories. These innovative technologies developed by Dräger make it easier to use the equipment and optimize the workflow both at the department level and within the entire hospital.
High-quality therapy while transporting the patient within the facility – the V500 also solves this problem. With the optional GS500 unit, you can equip the device with your own compressed air source based on turbine technology, and the optional PS500 unit significantly increases the independence of the device from power sources. An independent unit for transporting large oxygen cylinders is attached to the V500 in seconds. The Infinity®ID “Transfer Ventilation Parameters” feature simplifies preparation for transportation by copying ventilation parameters simply by switching the breathing circuit to another V500.
The scalable design of the V500 device with standardized interfaces for plug-in additional equipment and software updates allows you to respond to changing patient needs throughout the course of treatment, as well as to the further development of the Infinity system. Additional Infinity® components connected to the system will allow you to achieve a synergistic effect not only in the department but also at the level of the entire medical institution.
The C500, the Infinity® Medical Management Cockpit, supports nosocomial standardization with other equipment, providing a user-friendly interface that is common to all Infinity Acute Care System® products. Standardized interfaces facilitate data exchange, single accessories increase flexibility. All your V500 devices can be unified within a few minutes based on the configuration you created, transferred to a regular USB-drive.
Although the Dräger Evita Infinity® V500 with the C500 medical control cockpit can be used as a standalone high-end fan in almost any situation, the V500 is also a component of the Dräger Infinity® Acute Care System ™, a system designed to move ICUs to new levels of information integration and control. The system gives you a new perspective on your patients — a vision that you have never thought of before — and provides tools that will take the therapy one step further.
