Life support ventilators
Versatile non-invasive and invasive ventilator series for less dependent to fully dependent patients (>5kg)1 in need of acute and/or long-term care. Astral features a variety of modes, circuits and interfaces to treat a wide range of conditions and includes wireless connectivity to AirView
Product codes: Astral 100 (27061), Astral 150 (27063)
Secure by design
Astral’s systems have been thoughtfully designed to support smooth and effective transitions across all setups.
The disconnection alarm monitors multiple parameters to assess whether the ventilator breathing circuit has become disconnected from the patient. The Learn Circuit automatically measures the circuit resistance and compliance of the breathing circuit components then adapts and compensates accordingly.
Versatile, practical, liveable
Astral delivers a suite of therapy modes in a broad range of scenarios. It can be used during the day and at night, for tracheotomised patients or non-invasively ventilated patients with a mask or mouthpiece. This versatility enables you to cater for a wide variety of patients, from adults to children weighing as little as 5kg.
There’s no need to change the circuit when you switch from a mask to a mouthpiece. You can choose from a range of trigger options to match your patient’s inspiratory effort. It’s easy to flex between different circuit configurations and settings and to keep track of them, with four configurable programs and the option to name them.
Work fast and effectively
From initial setup to ongoing care, Astral is designed to provide a positive user experience. Its intuitive interface gives you the tools and information you need, to make fast and early decisions.
ResMed worked closely with clinical experts to make Astral easy to use and understand. The intuitive interface provides breath-by-breath statistics and auto-scaling real-time pressure and flow waveforms. Device and battery management is simplified by maintenance reminders and fast USB cloning of settings between devices.
Make the most of Astral
AirView allows you to see ventilated patients’ device and therapy statistics at a glance2. You can monitor your patients’ device settings remotely (unintentional leaks, respiratory rate, spontaneous trigger, minute ventilation, etc).
Astral Mobility bags
