Energy Saving Valve increases operating room efficiency.

Press Release Summary:

Designed to mount directly to any inhalation anesthetic machine, conservation valve has internal sensors that detect when patient is connected to inhalation anesthetic apparatus. This enables waste anesthetic gas disposal (WAGD), reducing energy as well as pump wear and tear. Valve also works alongside Halogenated Drug Recovery system, improving performance by concentrating drugs up to 9 times for more efficient capture. Safety features include manual override and failsafe design.

Original Press Release:

New Conservation Valve Saves Energy in Operating Rooms

Cambridge, ON - Class 1 Inc. is pleased to receive its Class II medical device license from Health Canada for its new conservation valve. The conservation valve is designed to mount directly to any inhalation anesthetic machine. Many waste anesthetic gas disposal (WAGD) systems currently operate continuously, regardless of whether the anesthetic machines are in use or not. With Class 1's conservation valve, internal sensors detect when a patient is connected to the anesthetic apparatus, enabling the WAGD, and thus reducing both energy and wear and tear on pumps. The conservation valve also works alongside Class 1's Halogenated Drug Recovery system, improving its performance by concentrating the drugs up to nine times for more efficient capture. Safety features of the conservation valve include a manual override and a failsafe design, which revert the WAGD system back to full continuous scavenging in the event of internal failure or power loss.

Class 1 Inc. is helping hospitals help our planet.
