But Daniel Rowan is also familiar with the MEDUMAT Standard from his duties on a normal ambulance. “I have to say, I have very good experience with both of them. Here on the air ambulance, of course, the devices are used more constantly.” This is due simply to their frequent transporting of intensive care patients. Daniel Rowan says that in the end, this is of course a medical measure. But the team discuss what to do, for example if ventilation parameters need adapting for physiological reasons resulting from flying: “We are moving at altitude, after all.”
Daniel Rowan thinks the WEINMANN Emergency devices are clearly structured. He likes the graphical nature of the control panel. “You have a good, clear overview which shows you what you need to know. The menu guidance is simple, too.”
He also considers emergency ventilation with the various default parameters a good solution. “You can then take your time to make modifications.” He thinks the whole package simply works. Just like his job.
