Armstrong Medical to Launch AquaVENT® VT Heated Ventilator Circuits at MEDICA 2021

As the world battles a global respiratory disease, Armstrong Medical will be launching its new AquaVENT® VT heated ventilator breathing circuits at this year’s MEDICA Trade Fair (15 – 18 November 2021).

The UK manufacturer of innovative respiratory products for use in Critical Care and Perioperative settings will be joining the ABHI UK Pavilion.


Optimal humidity is necessary in the management of invasively ventilated patients. However, with active humidification systems, water in the expiratory limb and machine-end breathing filter is a common problem, thus necessitating frequent filter changes and management of water vapour that condenses in the tubing limbs.

Armstrong Medical’s vapour permeable technology resolves this challenge. It eliminates the need for a water trap and reduces the number of filter changes, allowing the maintenance of a closed breathing circuit for longer. This means clinicians can focus their time and efforts where it’s needed – on their patients.

AquaVENT® VT technology has been developed to manage humidity throughout the entire breathing circuit. The heater wire form minimises loss of water vapour in the inspiratory limb, thus delivering optimal humidification to the patient.

Meanwhile, the unique structure of the expiratory limb tubing achieves a high Moisture Vapour Transition Rate (MVTR), providing a dry expiratory limb under any conditions of use.

Company comments

Michael Denver-Beautement, Head of International Sales, said: We are excited to launch AquaVENT® VT on a global stage at MEDICA. Our aim is to enable the clinical team to be able to concentrate on the patient, not the equipment, which should help to improve outcomes.

ABHI comments

Paul Benton, Managing Director, International at the ABHI added: “We are excited that Armstrong Medical has chosen to launch its state-of-the-art ventilation circuit technology on the ABHI UK Pavilion. They’ll be joined by some of the most forward-thinking UK companies across the medical world. We look forward to welcoming them this year.”

MEDICA is taking place from 15 – 18 November 2021 and throughout the show, Armstrong Medical will be located on the ABHI UK Pavilion – Hall 16 Stand K42. For more information. visit
