Midmark Matrx® Veterinary Anaesthesia range

  1. 1. Matrx® Anaesthesia
  2. 2. Better Patient Care. Better Business. Since 1964 more veterinary professionals and universities throughout the world have placed their trust in anaesthesia technology, pioneered by Fraser Sweatman and now found exclusively in every Matrx® anaesthesia machine.
  3. 3. Matrx®, formerly known by the name, Fraser Sweatman, started back in the mid 1960’s. Throughout the years there has been company merges, buyouts and name changes but the general assembly has stayed the same. Only a few changes occurred for added safety or convenience e.g., Occlusion valve, negative pressure relief valve and flip levers. In 2004, Midmark purchased the dental and veterinary divisions of Matrx®, adding the veterinary/animal health sector. Then in 2009, manufacturing was brought to Versailles, OH where 50+ years of manufacturing experience goes into every Matrx® anaesthesia machine. Matrx® History

  12. 12. Theory of Operation
  13. 13. Oxygen Flush
  14. 14. The APL Valve The APL Valve (adjustable pressure limiting) or Pop-Off valve, controls the pressure in the system and the patients lungs. Fully open, the APL valve maintains a pressure of 1-3cm/H2O. When the pressure in the system exceeds the 1-3cm/H2O, the valve opens and gas escapes. Open APL valve, pressure in the system is under 1-3CM/H2O Open APL valve, pressure in the system is over 1-3cm/H2O allowing gas to escape.
  15. 15. The Occlusion Valve The Matrx® Occlusion valve allows the anaesthetist to simply and quickly close the breathing circuit to allow a bagged breath to the patient. The safety relief feature prevents an unsafe pressure buildup in the anaesthetic machine and patient. If pressure exceeds 25-30cm/H2O, the valve opens, releasing the pressure out the APL valve.
  16. 16. This safety valve allows the patient to breath if the oxygen supply runs out or is shut off. The flexible diaphragm lets air in if the pressure inside the machine during inhalation becomes lower than the pressure outside. Negative Pressure Relief Valve

  28. 28. Maintenance Kits •Recommend changing rubber O rings and seals every 2 years •Save money buying Maintenance Kit rather than separate items •Upgrade old machines with thumb nut on the absorber canister to convenient quick releases
  29. 29. Pressure Gauge (Manometer) The pressure gauge or Manometer allows you to monitor pressure inside the anaesthetic circuit / macine It is especially useful for leak testing the anaesthesia machine and for monitoring the system pressure during assisted ventilation
  30. 30. Testing the APL valve
  31. 31. Testing the inhalation & exhalation valve
  32. 32. Leak Test
  33. 33. Leak Test Other common areas of leakage: • Reservoir bag – replace if necessary • Breathing circuit – replace if necessary • Vaporiser fittings – verify fittings and attachments • Absorber canister – verify seated properly, check gaskets • Safety Valves – remove valve and obstruct opening to determine if leaking or not – check o ring • O Rings – check for damage and replace if necessary
  34. 34. Cleaning
  35. 35. Scheduled Maintenance Interval Inspection / Service Description Before every surgery Inspect Check machine connections and rubber parts for looseness, damage or wear – replace as necessary Before every surgery Leak Test Perform leak test Daily Clean Daily cleaning Weekly Change Sodasorb Follow manufacturer’s instructions for proper use of CO2 absorbents (rec. every 2 weeks) Annually Service Vaporizer Service and calibrate vaporiser Every 2 years Replacement Replace components found in maintenance kits (o rings, gaskets, valve disks, breathing circuit, etc.)
  36. 36. Thank you for watching the Midmark Matrx® Anaesthesia presentation Over fifty years of quality manufacturing experience goes into every Matrx® anaesthesia machines. The all metal construction in combination with high quality rubber seals and hoses provide a durable, pressurized system that requires little maintenance. The Matrx® VMS and VMS Plus anaesthesia machines have been a long-standing favourite with veterinary professionals for the high quality, safety and ease of use. The Occlusion Valve, Negative Pressure Relief Valve, included with the VMS and VMS Plus are added for safety and peace of mind. The dome style inhalation/exhalation valves allows for easy monitoring of respiration and the quick release levers for easy absorbent replacement.
