MACS CPAP System

MACS is the Next Generation CPAP System for EMS Ground / Air Transport

MACS CPAP system works with your patient providing low spontaneous work of breathing compared to disposable CPAP mask options, and delivers a better patient experience with critical care delivery.

MACS is built tough to stand up to EMS in-field rigor. In fact, MACS is rugged enough to withstand the tests required for the US Army Air Worthiness Certification*. These tests represent the harshest tests for any product.

MACS is designed for patient application by mask or endotracheal tube. CPAP application for those patients in respiratory distress – congestive heart failure (CHF), asthma, COPD or for any patient with severe breathing difficulty.

Cost Effective CPAP for Critical Life Support

MACS is an easy-to-use, economical mask CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) system. Its demand flow system delivers CPAP without wasting oxygen.

A calibrated knob sets the CPAP level and a switch selects 65% or 100% oxygen. Your per run cost is less due to lower oxygen costs and affordable patient circuits.

MACS supports patients in respiratory distress who would otherwise require intubation. EMS agencies with Mask CPAP protocols have reported a substantial decrease in patient intubations with increased ER stabilization.

* Based on US Department of Defense Standard MIL-HDBK-516, October 2002

Reviews

We have seen a reduction in field endotracheal intubations over the past 18 months because of the difference [MACS] CPAP makes to patients in severe respiratory distress that would otherwise be intubated.

The MACS System gives the option of 100% O2 or 65% O2…” He [Pete Moreneo, Jr.] also appreciate’s that it’s very light and portable and has been proven to be very durable.

We nixed the disposables really quickly…then we looked at oxygen consumption, ease of use and benefit to the patient and chose the Airon model [MACS CPAP System].
