Bio-Med Devices 2003F (Operating Room)
The 2003F blender was designed specifically for the operating room environment. It is a low flow blender that is configured with a 0-15 lpm flow meter installed. This allows a blended gas source to be delivered to a patient and minimizes the potential build-up of oxygen under the patient drape. The flow meter is attached to an integrated switch that allows the bleed flow (3 lpm) to only be active when the flow meter is in the upright position, and in use. This way, when the OR is not in use, the flow meter can be rotated forward and there is no waste of gas unnecessarily. The positioning of the flow meter in the OFF position can also be visualized without having to enter the room.
