The Zimmer ATS 3000 is a great choice for a tourniquet. Tourniquets are used in surgical procedures to stop the flow of blood from the section being operated on.

Zimmer ATS 3000 Tourniquet Features

Zimmer is a leading manufacturer of medical equipment. The ATS 3000 has many technologically up to date features. Pneumatic tourniquets use electricity to control how much pressure is applied to the body to stop the flow of blood. The use of ambient air is also applied.

The ATS 3000 is intended to be used by qualified medical professionals to temporarily occlude blood flow in a patient’s extremities during surgical procedures. The most popular surgeries in which this device are used include knee, upper and lower extremity arthroplasties. The system can self-check with calibration to automatically measure the machine’s units each time it is powered on. The machine will let the user know with cuff alerts when the machine goes on standby. Cuff Lockout feature prompts the user to confirm when deflation is happening. This command during bilateral or IVRA procedures reduces complications due to a sudden cuff deflation.

Tourniquets have been found useful in producing a bloodless operation field in surgical procedures involving the extremities including:

  • Reduction of certain fractures
  • Kirschner wire removal
  • Tumor and cyst removal
  • Subcutaneous fasciotomy
  • Nerve injuries
  • Tendon repair
  • Bone grafts
  • Total wrist and joint replacement
  • Replacement of joints in the fingers
  • Knee joint replacements
  • Amputations
  • Replantations

The patient’s limb occlusion pressure (LOP) is the lowest pressure required to stop the flow of blood in the extremity. The Zimmer ATS 3000 has the ability to estimate the patients’ limb occlusion pressure base on their physiological characteristics. This unit can take into account anticipated changes in blood pressure during the procedure by adding an additional pressure margin to the LOP measurement at the end of the LOP determination. The additional pressure margin added to the measurement is referred to as the recommended tourniquet pressure (RTP).

ATS 3000 Specifications

The ATS 3000 is mounted on a pole and is easily transported in between operating rooms. The total weight is 16.3 pounds but will feel lighter due to its mount. The battery is rechargeable and lasts for 4 amp hours. The unit can operate on battery power for 240 minutes with a fully charged battery. The power cord can extend up to 14 feet. The maximum pressure that can be applied to a cuff is 475 mmHg. The timer can be set for a range of 5 to 240 minutes with 1-minute increments.

General Maintenance

While the ATS 3000 has been designed and manufactured to high industry standards, it is recommended that regular inspection and calibration be performed to ensure continued safe and effective operation. Tests and inspections should be made at least every 6 months.
