The Hamilton-C6 represents a new generation of high-end ventilators. The combination of modularity, ease of use,mobility, and advanced features provides respiratory therapists the real-time support they need to optimize patient ventilation therapy. The high-resolution monitor with capacitive touch screen combined with the clear and intuitive user experience aligns the interface of Hamilton-C6 with the interface of most touch-sensitive mobile phones thus assuring, familiar,easy, intuitive and rapid operation. The new GUI incorporates a clear graphic representation of critically relevant patient monitoring parameters and ventilation settings so as to provide a rapid real-time overview and assessment of the patient's ventilation status.A clear visual hierarchy continually communicates to the caregiver which parameters are in auto-mode and thus will be adjusted automatically by the ventilator and which have been selected to be manually adjusted by the caregiver. The design of the Hamilton-C6 GUI is proof of a careful implementation of an innovative interface which builds on a strong history of well-structured and appreciated User Experience. The GUI of the Hamilton-C6 is strikingly familiar and yet brings radical innovation to a traditionally conservative audience in a much needed area of innovation so as to better facilitate patient ventilation therapy.
