Palm EVO is a portable unit with rechargeable batteries capable of generating adjustable levels of suction. It is intended for use following thoracic surgery where a portable and independent vacuum unit is required. This unit can also be used for objective measurement of the air leakages. This information is provided in both numerical and graphical form, and can be transferred and saved onto USB storage media.
The vacuum unit is a portable and adjustable suction system dedicated for use with compatible Redax thoracic drainage systems. The unit performs its function in the following ways:
- It creates and maintains a controlled vacuum in the collection receptacle connected to it by means of an internal rotary type suction pump; the suction can be adjusted from 0 to -60 cm H2O by means of the keyboard.
- It measures and stores the data relating to the aspirated air flow and to the pressure changes in the collection receptacle. This data is displayed in numerical and graphical form directly on the screen of the Palm Evo.
- It allows the adjusted suction to be maintained even during patient movements thanks to the internal rechargeable batteries; under normal operating conditions, it can run for up to 36 hours before needing to be recharged.
- Data can be transferred through a USB 2.0 port, for later viewing and/or storage.
