Fabian HFO

The fabian HFO evolution is Acutronic's 4-in-1 device. From the delivery room to the NICU: the fabian HFO offers the best-in-class ventilation modalities in a single device.

A true modular system with choice of ventilation modes for the ventilator configuration you need  - more can be added and “enabled” whenever desired.

All these features and even more in just one device:

all neonatal and pediatric conventional ventilation modes (Volume Guarantee included), Non-Invasive Ventilation modes (NIV), O2 therapy with High Flow Nasal Cannula (HFNC) and unique High Frequency Oscillation (HFO) with Lung Recruitment Maneuver and Volume Guarantee.

Neonatal and pediatric ventilation modes (IPPV, SIPPV, SIMV, PSV and SIMV+PSV) with independent adjustment of inspiratory and expiratory flow reduces the work of breathing and inadvertent PEEP.

nCPAP and DuoPAP modes, for nasal and mask ventilation, with automatic leak compensation, featuring two-level CPAP mode to improve CO2 removal.

Ease of Use

A clear, bright touch-TFT display – visible at any angle and distance – with intuitive commands reduces human error and puts the focus back on the baby.

All operation procedures are carried out by a direct, time-saving and easy to understand 'one-touch' principle.

The Next Generation of Closed-Loop Oxygenation

Individual. Intelligent. Efficient.
Every newborn is special. PRICO (Predictive Intelligent Control of Oxygenation) by Acutronic is the next generation of Intelligent Closed-Loop FiO2-SpO2 Controls, maintaining the patient's SpO2within the intended range. Together with the Masimo Set® SpO2-Sensors, its unique algorithm and high-performance blender now perform FiO2 adjustments automatically, quickly, and more reliably than ever before.

PRICO not only supports caregivers in their daily goal for best possible patient comfort and safety, but also helps clinicians save time, reduce cost, and improve their workflow.

PRICO will keep you within your target range more reliably than normal manual adjustment.

Less tube sets. More flexibility.

The new fabian HFO doesn’t require any additional tube set to connect the internal HFO module to the patient circuit and this solution improve different aspects:

  • More power transmitted from HFO internal module to the patient
  • All modes (conventional and HFOV) can be used with the same patient circuit providing a seamless transition between modes
  • Reduction in costs of treatment
  • More efficient time management for caregivers




One device offering all options

The latest edition of fabian HFO comes with the HFO fully integrated into the inspiratory port. No additional tubing for HFO needed. Furthermore, the fresh gas port allows for easier use of NO systems. The fresh gas port also function as the nCPAP port, making it even easier to switch modalities.

Relieve Baby’s Stress

Developmental Care

Particularly silent, the fabian HFO, creates a low-stress and low-noise environment for the undisturbed handling, bonding and kangaroo care of the baby during its development.

Patient Safety

On the receiving end of our ventilators are the tiniest and most fragile patients imaginable. To keep them safe and protected whenever they are ventilated is the starting point of all our thoughts.

  • Integrated lock function keyboard to prevent inadvertent settings.
  • Easy maintenance no components for disinfection and sterilization mean no risk of infection inside ventilator.
  • No bacterial filters and therefore no risk of increased resistance during humidified ventilatory therapies.
  • Optimal support with reduced Work Of Breathing (iWOB).
  • Reduced error risk thanks to the self-training ACUTRONIC concept inside.
  • Built-in backup battery pack for up to three hours of self-powered operation.



Designed for Mobility

Medical technology should make the workflow faster and easier for clinicians. Interfaces should be familiar and intuitive at a glance — consistent across different workstations thus reducing the potential for error. Data should be entered once and be available across multiple platforms to support decision making.

Ultimately, innovations in ventilators’ design and clinical information management can improve both patient safety and outcomes while supporting the maximum flexibility.

  • Comprehensive device allowing easy access to the baby at all times without disturbing the bed site inside the NICU/PICU
  • Lightweight unit designed for safe practical transport with integrated electronic gas blender and built-in battery

Communication Interface
Digital Interface with all hospital lnformation systems, download ventilation and monitoring data.

Service mode
“Service mode” with advanced diagnostics via USB port, standard Ethernet connection.

Flexible & scalable
The system is flexible and can be used with all conventional breathing circuits currently available on the market.

Built-in microprocessor, multi-language, guaranteed, upgradeable, all connections clearly placed and easily accessible.

Meet the fabian family

The new fabian generation by ACUTRONIC consists of three Gold Club members. Each one is representing the benchmark in its class, either in non-invasive, conventional or sophisticated High Frequency ventilation. They are configured for your specific needs and can be upgraded with further options.
