The Hamilton C2 Ventilator is a light-weight, portable ventilator. The C2 evokes an inviting, friendly personality, while still giving the operator and the patient confidence that it’s a ventilator upon which you can trust your life. The approachable and intuitive screen of the C2 articulates at different angles to accommodate different operator positions. The clear organization of information reduces pressure on operators and helps to minimize errors. With inbuilt batteries and weighing under 21 pounds the C2 can accompany a patient anywhere within the hospital, independently of central gas and power supplies. Patients don’t have to be disconnected for transport, increasing patient safety and comfort, while at the same time reducing operator workload. The C2 can be used on a countertop, rolling stand, or carried with the built-in handle that nestles into the top of the unit when not in use.
