Medical-Grade UPS Systems Support Mobile Therapy and Patient Transport
CHICAGO, April 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, offers medical-grade uninterruptible power supplies (UPS systems) that meet Fisher & Paykel Healthcare’s comprehensive requirements to power the AIRVO 2, their humidified system to administer nasal high-flow oxygen therapy.
Based on testing at Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, Tripp Lite’s SmartPro® SMART700HGL (120V) and SMX700HGL (230V) medical-grade UPS systems meet the recommended specifications to power the AIRVO 2 in mobile and portable applications. These tower UPS systems feature full line isolation and reduce the cumulative leakage current of connected equipment to less than 100 microamps. Full isolation also supports noise filtering and common mode surge protection.
The UPS systems have lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries to power the AIRVO 2 during patient transport. The batteries offer significantly more charge cycles than equivalent lead-acid batteries.
“Powering equipment on mobile medical devices is an essential part of healthcare,” said Jim Folk, Tripp Lite’s Director of Healthcare Solutions. “Tripp Lite’s 700VA medical-grade UPS systems with lithium-ion batteries allow the AIRVO 2 to travel with the patient throughout hospitals and long-term care facilities. The ability to power cart equipment in transport mode ensures therapy can continue without interruption.”
