Precise / Accurate Vacuum Control

The VAVD Controller reacts to circuit demands and input conditions to maintain a reliable and consistent output of suction applied to your cardiotomy reservoir.

Provides for Waste Anesthetic Gas Removal

Waste Anesthetic Gas from the membrane oxygenator is a dangerous background contaminant and occupational health experts agree these gases should be removed from the perfusionist's workspace.

Electronic Medical Records Port

It allows for the permanent connection of a Luer-type pressure transducer to allow the VAVD suction pressures to be recorded electronically.

Independent Safety Relief

A precision-machined redundant system vents excess NEGATIVE and POSITIVE pressures in the event of any malfunction in the main regulator or accompanying pump circuit.

Integral Supply Gauge

Open caps on the cardiotomy reservoir or kinked supply tubing can be readily identified and addressed by noting a drop in the supply pressure gauge.

Appropriate Clinical Range

The only device on the market built to an appropriate clinical range.

Self Clearing™ Regulation Components

In the unlikely event, blood does enter the control, patented design and control surfaces ensure continued regulated output.
