A5 Anesthesia Machine


The Mindray A5’s user interface and ergonomic design simplify workflow. The 15” touch screen enables clinicians to easily select ventilation settings, so less time is spent maneuvering and more time is devoted to patient care. The A5 provides a range of advanced ventilation modes enabling effective care across the range of patient acuity types. Integrated spirometry offers additional information and enhances careful decision making.

The auxiliary Oxygen/Air flow meters deliver blended gas through the nasal cannula, allowing the clinician to maintain their preferred clinical practice without increased risk of surgical fire. The A5 conforms to the IHE (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise) Patient Care Domain (PCD) profile. A5 is capable of outputting data in industry standard HL7 protocol. HL7 with the IHE PCD profile is recognized by anesthesia information and electronic medical records (EMR) systems as the demonstrated industry standard for unambiguous interoperability.

The A5’s ample work surface, comfortable footrest, central brake and integrated cable sweeps enhance device mobility.
