With easy setup, simple servicing and an intuitive interface, Astral has been designed to make ventilation support straightforward and efficient.
Versatile Treatment Options
Astral delivers excellence in leak and valve ventilation for invasive and noninvasive applications and provides a full suite of therapy modes to suit both adult and pediatric patients.
Simple Patient Set-Up
Astral’s intuitive interface, presettable programs and setup assistant allow for fast and accurate patient setup. The QuickConnect Valve circuits have been specifically designed to reduce known and common setup errors so therapy can be delivered quickly and safely.
Real-time waveforms and patient information are displayed on the large color touch screen to ensure correct setup and to monitor the patient’s condition. FiO2 and SpO2 are integrated to complete the therapy picture.
Simplifying Inventory Management
Astral can treat a broad range of respiratory conditions in pediatric and adult patients, so just one device can go a lot further. Fast turnaround times and simple servicing also reduce the need for backup ventilators, saving both time and money.
Saving Time During Training and Patient Care
Astral’s intuitive interface and easy operation can alleviate training pressures and minimize training time. Easy navigation with user-friendly menus enable quick and confident setup so you and your staff can focus on what’s important: the overall care of your patients.
The pneumatic block can be quickly and seamlessly swapped during an in-field service or at the service center, reducing downtime for the device and improving cost efficiencies.

Vsync and TiControl:
Closely capturing the dynamic nature of leak, Vsync technology accurately compensates for fast-changing and unstable leak, delivering the right flow at the right time, so that patient-device synchrony is maintained.
� When Vsync detects a sudden and large change in the leak flow, the usual 10 second window in which it scans for leak, is rapidly reduced towards a 2 second window. This allows for rapid resynchronization with the patient — usually within two to three breaths, depending on the size of the leak.
� Once resynchronization has occurred, the window period is quickly moved back to its default 10 second value.
� Without Vsync, the outcome would be different. The increased flow from a leak can be misinterpreted as patient inhalation, causing the ventilator to mistrigger from EPAP to IPAP, out of sync with the patient’s actual effort. It can also diminish the ventilator’s ability to cycle the breath.
� Vsync works closely with the tiControl feature to further maintain synchronization, even during instances of large leak.
� TiControl allows you to manage your patient’s inspiratory time limit according to their disease state. For challenging respiratory conditions, TiControl allows you to manage spontaneous flow, letting you set your patient’s ideal levels.
� With its Ti Min and Max settings, you can be rest assured that TiControl safeguards your patient so that they’re breathing at exactly the right pace.
� Even if your patient’s cycle of breath becomes spontaneous and out of its registered inspiration phase, the device will respond, providing timely intervention.
� Together, Vsync and TiControl offer extra assurance and control over your patient’s inspiratory time, promoting reliable device-controlled synchrony.
