FDA Clears New Anesthesia Delivery System

Mindray Medical International Ltd. said it has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its AS3000 next generation anesthesia delivery system (the AS3000) developed by Datascope Patient Monitoring, a Mindray company.

The AS3000 delivers precision anesthesia and ventilation assistance with an intuitive design developed to bring a higher level of ergonomics to the operating room, the company said. The system provides enhanced inhalation anesthesia and ventilation support capabilities for a variety of anesthesia cases and critical care settings, including hospitals, health clinics, outpatient and ambulatory surgery centers, specialty and surgical hospitals. The new system can reportedly be integrated with existing DPM monitors including the recently launched Spectrum OR and Gas Module III.
