Small Animal Ventilator (Model 683), Single Animal, Volume Controlled

Small Animal Ventilator, Model 683

The Model 683 Small Animal Ventilator comes standard with two piston and cylinder assemblies. The smaller piston (which comes installed) allows tidal volumes to be set from 0.5 to 5.0 cc in 0.5 cc increments and the larger cylinder allows tidal volumes of 3.0 to 30 cc in 0.3 cc increments. Setting the cylinder stroke between gradations it is possible to achieve finer resolution in tidal volume settings.

  • For small animals from 250 g to 10 kg (22 lb) e.g. rats, hamsters, rabbits, cats, monkeys, small dogs
  • CE approved

The 683 Ventilator features a numerical LED to display the respiratory rate which can be set from 18 to 150 strokes/minute. Volume and rate settings can be adjusted while the ventilator is running.

The 683 Ventilator has four gas inlet and outlet ports: supply gas in, gas out (to animal), gas return (from animal) and ventilator exhaust. The ventilator exhaust can be attached to a column of water to achieve PEEP (positive end expiratory pressure) when long term animal ventilation is necessary.

Overhaul kits are available for  the 683 ventilator are are specific for the type of cylinder used. Overhaul kits include complete instructions and replacement parts.
