Astral™ life support ventilator: for greater freedom | ResMed
Greater freedom

Greater freedom

Lightweight, quiet and discreet, Astral™ is built to bring greater freedom to the lives of patients, so they can continue with their day-to-day activities.

A helpful range of accessories is also available to support carers, and give patients added mobility and peace of mind.

Powered to move

Astral offers an internal battery that lasts up to 8 hours. You can also add up to 2 external batteries to give patients as far as 24 hours of continuous ventilation on battery.

Weighing just 3.2 kg, Astral’s internal battery has one of the best power-to-weight ratios on the market, enabling your patients to travel lighter, and for longer.

Astral’s DC power option means it can be plugged in wherever there is a DC socket, including cars. All of Astral’s power and battery options meet FAA requirements for use during all phases of air travel.

Convenient mobility bags

For day-to-day mobility or travel away from the hospital or home, patients and their carers have the choice of 2 custom-built protective mobility bags: the Astral mobility bag, which has room for all of Astral’s essential accessories, and the lighter but smaller SlimFit mobility bag, with a pouch for the power supply or external battery.

Providing uninterrupted ventilation on the go, both bags feature versatile shoulder straps, so you can comfortably carry Astral by hand, around the shoulders or even as a backpack. Additional straps also enable Astral to be mounted onto a wheelchair.

Thanks to thoughtful design, a transparent panel means patients and carers always have quick access to the touchscreen menus without having to remove the ventilator from the bag.

Hospital trolley and remote alarm

When patients on Astral need to be transported or moved around, staff can do so with convenience using the Astral hospital trolley. And for easier handling and organisation, the trolley is also available with a medical power strip located in the centre console as well as a storage bin to keep Astral and its accessories together.

Any patient on life support requires close attention and care. For times when carers may be called away, the Remote Alarm II provides patients and carers with peace of mind when linked to remote or hospital alarm systems.
