Real time information when you need it

The Universal Monitron® reads trending information on the ventilator/respirator function. The Monitron® is an independent unit and will not impact function of the Bronchotron® should it fail.

  • Mean Airway Pressure (MAP)
  • Average Inspiratory Pressure (AIP)
  • Average Expiratory Pressure (EIP)
  • Visual display of rate
  • Disconnect Alarm

The Universal Monitron® is designed to be used in conjunction with the Sinusoidal Bronchotron®. Together these units provide the full range of ventilation/respiration, airway clearance and lung recruitment.

Universal Monitron

Military and Hospital Transport

Flow Ventilation® with ventilators developed by Dr. Bird specifically for the military have helped save numerous soldier’s lives during transport from battlefield medical units to major trauma centers. The unique characteristics of Flow Ventilation® with fully pneumatic drive units and the Phasitron make it ideally suited for use in airplanes and helicopters. The same technology enabled thousands of critically ill babies to be safely transported from one hospital to another.
