Background and Identification
AGA Medical Corporation is an American manufacturer of cardiovascular medical devices founded in 1995. AGA produces devices to treat congenital heart and peripheral vascular diseases. The company specializes in structural heart diseases, interventional radiology, and vascular surgery. AGA also produces medical ventilators including the AGA UV 705 model.
A ventilator is a machine that provides mechanical ventilation by moving breathable air into and out of a person’s lungs to deliver breaths to a patient who is breathing insufficiently or physically unable to breathe. Ventilators are sometimes called “respirators,” though medical terminology uses the word “respirator” to refer to a protective face-mask.
The AGA UV 705 is a flexible, volume time-constant ventilator that can be used for anesthesia in both rebreathing and non-rebreathing systems, as well as for post-operative use. It is controlled electronically and driven pneumatically, guaranteeing stable ventilation for patients. The AGA UV 705 consists of two sections which are completely separate from each other — the main drive unit with a built-in pressure chamber and a patient unit with an insufflation bag. The respirator’s main unit is driven by compressed air. The UV 705 can be powered by both mains and batteries.
In rebreathing systems like the UV 705, the patient breathes from the insufflation bag. Ventilation is volume-controlled (meaning the volume of air is constant) and the excess gas is diverted through the excess valve during the expiration phase.
