Fabian HFO

The fabian HFO evolution is Acutronic’s 4-in-1 device. From the delivery room to the NICU: the fabian HFO offers the best-in-class ventilation modalities in a single device.

A true modular system with choice of ventilation modes for the ventilator configuration you need – more can be added and «enabled» whenever desired.
A clear, bright touch-TFT display – visible at any angle and distance – with intuitive commands reduces human error and puts the focus back on the baby.
All operation procedures are carried out by a direct, time-saving and easy to understand «one-touch» principle.

Ventilation beyond limits

All neonatal and pediatric conventional ventilation modes (Volume Guarantee included), Non-Invasive Ventilation modes (NIV), O2 therapy with High Flow Nasal Cannula (HFNC) and unique High Frequency Oscillation (HFO) with Lung Recruitment Maneuver and Volume Guarantee.
Neonatal and pediatric ventilation modes (IPPV, SIPPV, SIMV, PSV and SIMV+PSV) with independent adjustment of inspiratory and expiratory flow reduces the work of breathing and inadvertent PEEP.
nCPAP and DuoPAP modes, for nasal and mask ventilation, with automatic leak compensation, featuring two-level CPAP mode to improve CO2 removal.

Predictive Intelligent Control of Oxygenation (PRICO)

Every newborn is special. PRICOis the intelligent Closed-Loop FiO2-SpO2 Controls, maintaining the patient’s SpO2within the intended range. Together with the Masimo Set® SpO2-Sensors, its unique algorithm and high-performance blender now perform FiO2 adjustments automatically, quickly, and more reliably than ever before.

PRICO not only supports caregivers in their daily goal for best possible patient comfort and safety, but also helps clinicians save time, reduce cost, and improve their workflow.
PRICO will keep you within your target range more reliably than normal manual adjustment.

Individual. Intelligent. Efficient.

Relieve Baby’s Stress

New high-performance technologies

One device offering all options. fabian HFO comes with the HFO fully integrated into the inspiratory port. No additional tubing for HFO needed. Furthermore, the fresh gas port allows for easier use of NO systems. The fresh gas port also function as the nCPAP port, making it even easier to switch modalities

Highly precise and state of the art technology improve the quality and effectiveness of our non-invasive ventilations.

Patient Safety

On the receiving end of our ventilators are the tiniest and most fragile patients imaginable. To keep them safe and protected whenever they are ventilated is the starting point of all our thoughts.

  • Integrated lock function keyboard to prevent inadvertent settings.
  • Easy maintenance no components for disinfection and sterilization mean no risk of infection inside ventilator.
  • No bacterial filters and therefore no risk of increased resistance during humidified ventilatory therapies.
  • Optimal support with reduced Work Of Breathing (iWOB).
  • Reduced error risk thanks to the self-training ACUTRONIC concept inside.
  • Built-in backup battery pack for up to three hours of self-powered operation.
  • Minimizes your disposables spend as no rebreathing bag, Co2 absorber or tubes are needed.
  • Automatic leak detection.
  • Workflow-driven: No preparation time before starting the test and automatic switched to the next sequence during the measurement.
  • Differentiation of fast and slow lung compartments.
  • Measurement of Lung Clearance Index (LCI) to diagnose patients with small airway diseases.
