Temperature-controlled Anesthetic Vapor Device for Clinical Use

Oregon Health & Science University, Oregon, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

An anesthetic vaporizer using temperature-vapor pressure relationships of volatile anesthetics to electronically control the delivery of clinically relevant concentrations of inhalational anesthetic vapor.

Primary Application Area: Medical Devices

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: A universal, non-agent specific, anesthetic vaporizer using temperature to control the anesthetic; eliminates expensive servicing and calibration; and the decreased size and weight makes it ideal in space constrained environments and for suboptimal situations such as rural clinics, confined spaces, field military use, or veterinary use.
