    Fabius GS

Dräger Fabius GS

A unit to meet all the needs of the clinicians with efficient and effective patient care. The Dräger Fabius GS allows you to add modular elements, so you will have all the function available in one machine. This means that the Fabius grows with your needs or concentrates on its main objective: taking care of the patient.

It is electrically driven and controlled, working without drive gas, so it is more flexible and efficient to use than conventional anesthesia units.  It is the first machine to work with vertical flow controls and electronic fresh gas flow indicators. By using this the clinician can control gas flows easily. 

Your future anesthesia unit comes from Dräger.

Integrated safety functions

Sensitive Oxygen Ratio Controller (S-ORC) guarantees
a minimum O2concentration of 23% in an O2/N2O mixture. N2O cut-off if O2fresh gas valve is closed or if O2 flow is less than 0.2 L/min. Audible and visual (flashing red LED) indication in case O2pressure drops below 20 psi
(1.38 bar) ± 4 psi (0.27 bar).
In case of electricity and battery failure, manual
ventilation, gas delivery and agent delivery are possible. Positive pressure relief valve opens at 75 ± 5 cmH2O. Negative pressure relief valve opens at - 7.5 to - 9 cmH2O
