MACS epic CPAP System

MACS epic

MACS epic CPAP System, Critical Care CPAP for Hospitals and Transport

The MACS epic is designed specifically to address the unique requirements of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) within the hospital, including dynamic breathing patterns, flow demand, and higher oxygen needs.

The MACS epic enhances patient care and staff efficiency delivering CPAP with accurate patient monitoring, reliable alarms, and oxygen control 21 – 100%, or, with a simple flip of a switch, you can transport with an oxygen e-cylinder option for your convenience.

CPAP mode with demand flow automatically adjusts flow to meet changes in patient’s needs for maintaining airway patency and decreasing work of breathing

MACS epic meeting patient needs for respiratory support
Emergency Department

  • Supports acute pulmonary exacerbation
  • Advances care for congestive heart failure

Post Anesthesia

  • Airway support for sedation anesthesia
  • Pressure supported oxygenation for shallow breathing

Intensive Care

  • Weaning protocol for respiratory conditions
  • Reduces work of breathing post intubation

Continuum of Care

  • Provides early intervention for respiratory support to reduce needs for intubation
  • Nocturnal CPAP support for respiratory muscle mechanics

Benefits for the Patient

  • Low patient Work of Breathing (WOB) with peak flow of up to 140 L/min to meet patient needs
  • Adjustable oxygen delivery from 21% to 100% to precisely match patient oxygen requirements
  • Low-profile, easy-seal mask reduces facial pressure
  • Audible alert reminds patient of mask leak/patient disconnect to maintain CPAP therapy
  • Early intervention for respiratory support in emergency care or within the general hospital environment

Benefits for the Healthcare Provider

  • Calibrated CPAP control with automatic sensitivity for changing patient needs
  • Gas input options to deliver precise FIO2 for acute care needs or oxygen only for transport
  • Built-in patient disconnect alarm with remote output to nurse calls systems
  • Manometer to monitor CPAP delivery pressure and patient effort
  • Ease of operation with two controls; CPAP and FIO2
  • Night visible pressure gauge for ease of patient monitoring
  • Monitor CO2 with invasive/non-invasive CPAP support for spontaneously breathing patients
  • Pneumatically powered – no batteries

Benefits for Your Budget

  • Oxygen delivery options for critical care and transport; no external battery required for CPAP transport
  • Standardized economical patient circuits exchanges with the pNeuton Ventilator to save on operating costs
  • Minimal oxygen consumption, even at high oxygen levels, to maximize transport times and lower cost
  • No batteries or electronics decrease preventative maintenance costs
