ECRI Technical Review of Automedx SAVe II+ Ventilator Offer
17 June 2020
The demand for ventilators world-wide exceeds the available supply. In response to the scarcity of traditional intensive care ventilators, AutoMedX proposes a solution that, although it does not meet the WHO standards for an intensive care ventilator, may be useful for patients that require basic mechanical ventilation, therefore making a facility’s intensive care ventilator fleet more available to treat COVID-19 patients requiring intensive care.
The AutoMedX SAVe II+ ventilator is a ventilator designed to provide positive-pressure mechanical invasive ventilation. This ventilator is highly portable and appropriate for patients that weigh at least 45 kilograms. Tidal volume, respiratory rate, peak inspiratory pressure and PEEP are all adjustable; however, this ventilator is limited to assist/control only and lacks other modes of ventilation.
Compared to the WHO criteria for an intensive care ventilator, the SAVe II+ does not meet the following criteria:
- Lack of ventilation modes, such as volume control, pressure support, SIMV, pressure regulated volume control and CPAP/PEEP
- Tidal volume of 1000 mL (SAVe II+ range is 200 to 800 mL)
- Peak inspiratory flow of 120 LPM (SAVe II+ maximum is 40 LPM)
- Respiratory rate of 60 BPM (SAVe II+ reaches respiratory rate of 30 BPM)
- Peak inspiratory pressure up to 80 cm H20 (SAVe II+ reaches pressure support of 60 cm H2O).
This ventilator can accept a low flow regulated oxygen source (less than 10 LPM) and this ventilator does not have an oxygen analyzer. Therefore, an external oxygen analyzer must be used to measure the oxygen concentration of air delivered to the patient. It is also recommended that the ventilator be equipped with expired volume and CO2 monitoring equipment before being put into service.
In an ideal situation, a fully featured ventilator is the preferred device for treating patients with COVID-19 respiratory symptoms. Based on its technical and clinical review, ECRI believes that the Automedx SAVe II+ is an emergency ventilator most appropriately used to treat COVID-19 patients on a short-term basis when fully functional ventilators are not available.
AutoMedX, LLC is a small privately held company based in Texas, USA, that was founded and incorporated in late 2004. AutoMedX’s strategy has been to develop a portfolio of differentiated early resuscitation products geared at raising the standard of care in the pre-hospital environment. The mission of AutoMedX is to improve the survival rate of individuals requiring respiratory support by providing ready and easy access to mechanical ventilation during the first critical minutes of distress in the emergency medical services and military markets.

Ventilators are pieces of medical equipment that provide ventilatory support to patients who cannot maintain adequate ventilation or oxygenation on their own due to illness, trauma, congenital defects or drugs.
Ventilators typically consist of a flexible breathing circuit, a pneumatic system, a control system, monitors and alarms. Depending on the type and complexity of the ventilator, the gas is delivered either using a single or dual limb breathing circuit. Most ventilators are microprocessor controlled to control the pressure, volume, and Fi02. Power is supplied from either an electrical wall outlet and/or a battery.
All ventilators require a source of oxygen. Critical care ventilators always require a source of oxygen at high pressure (approximately 4 Bar) while other ventilators require a high pressure or low flow (2-15 l/m) source of oxygen, depending on the individual ventilator. Mechanical ventilators have several operating modes which are chosen by clinicians to define breath initiation and end (i.e., cycle) as well as adjustable parameters such as pressure and flow. Different modes can also provide either full or partial ventilatory support, depending on the individual patient’s condition and clinical requirements.
High Flow Delivery Devices
High-flow oxygen delivery systems, commonly referred to as a High Flow Nasal Cannula (HFNC) supply a given oxygen concentration at a higher than normal flow rate to the patient. These systems generally consist of three parts: the flow generator, an air-oxygen blender, and a heated humidifier. The heated and humidified air-oxygen is delivered to the patient via a specially designed nasal cannula.
The benefits of high-flow oxygen include the improvement of gas exchange and the decrease in the work of breathing. High-flow devices are capable of delivering a maximum flow of 60 l/min and all require a high-pressure source of air and oxygen at approximately 4 bars.
