Design Specifications

To operate, users first check that the unit is ready for use by running performance and calibration checks. They then make sure that settings for all components, including alarms, are correct and appropriate for the patient type and condition. The patient can then be connected to the ventilator, where caregivers are responsible for monitoring the patient during the ventilation. Main components include the MTTS-Asia Impala Ventilator, a gas hose with an oxygen connector, a power cable, and a silicon mask.

The ventilator should only be operated by a trained professional. An alternative means of ventilation should be available in case of an malfunction with the primary ventilator. Operating the device outside of the specified ambient temperature range (19°C - 37°C) or humidity range (30%RH - 90%RH) can compromise performance. The ventilator should not be operated if any of the components appear to be damaged or broken. Damaged or broken components should be discarded and replaced. For additional safety considerations, refer to the user manual provided by the manufacturer.
