Scitech introduces the new SAR-1000 small animal ventilators from CWE Inc.
Featuring a simple and intuitive interface, which can be used in
conjunction with a variety of different small animals, the SAR-1000 delivers
highly accurate respiratory parameters utilising advanced sensors for airflow
The ventilator is based on the proven ‘flow-time’ principle, where a
known airflow is delivered for a set period of time in order to achieve a fixed
volume. The volume mode provides a fixed tidal volume on each breath while the
pressure mode works to adjust the level of airflow as a means to achieve an appropriate
Respiratory parameters such as ‘Actual Tidal Volume’ and ‘Minute
Ventilation’ are computed and displayed on the LCD display. The SAR-1000 can be
operated under remote computer control using the built-in USB port and a host
PC. Basic control and monitoring software is also provided.
CWE Inc. has also released the new ‘SAR-COMM’ software package, provided
free to all SAR ventilator users, equipping them with elaborate remote control
capabilities. The software allows users to perform a variety of ventilator
protocols such as stopping, starting, breath-holding, and running complete
user-defined ventilation schemes.
