Used by multiple international armed forces for casualty care during transport (both ground and air) as well as in field hospitals and forward surgical suites, MOVES® SLC™ is a revolutionary, completely integrated Intensive Care Unit (ICU). MOVES® SLC™ combines an O2 concentrator, a unique O2-conserving ventilator, suction, and complete vital signs monitoring into a single, compact, portable, battery-operated system.
MOVES® SLC™ is designed, and tested, to support enroute care patient transport missions in addition to providing stationary life support capability. Whether operated in a helicopter, jet aircraft, turbo-propelled aircraft, ground transport vehicle, or stationary field hospital, MOVES® SLC™ has undergone real and simulated lifecycle testing to confirm reliability in these various extreme environmental and use conditions. Across the care continuum, no disconnections or equipment hand- off is required as MOVES® SLC™ accompanies the patient through the different levels of care, maintaining patient care at the highest level.
MOVES® SLC™ simplifies patient care, as patient monitoring, ventilation, suction and oxygen concentration functions are controlled through a single device, with a single user interface, and powered by battery or a single external power source. MOVES® SLC™ will operate in all transport platforms and provide the attending healthcare provider complete access to the patient. MOVES® SLC™ reduces the weight and size of current portable systems by over 50%, allowing for quick setup and tear down and making forward-deployed medical personnel more mobile and efficient.
Thornhill Medical’s patented circle-circuit ventilator, in combination with the integrated O2 concentrator, means MOVES® SLC™ can effectively eliminate the need to carry heavy, bulky and dangerous high pressure O2 cylinders. How? A high FiO2 can be maintained with low flow O2, as the patient rebreathes their exhaled O2 through MOVES® SLC™’s innovative circle-circuit ventilator. MOVES® SLC™ provides typical standard of care oxygen therapy for critically ill patients without high pressure O2 cylinders.
Since early 2017, MOVES® SLC™ has been deployed in battlefield conditions, providing primary life support care for forward surgical teams operating in challenging environments. These forces have reported that MOVES® SLC™ relieved their logistical burden of transporting multiple devices and compressed oxygen cylinders as the field surgical suite changed location, enhancing their mobility and operational efficiency.
The MOVES® SLC™ is a portable ventilator which is computer-controlled and electrically powered. It is intended to provide continuous or intermittent ventilatory support for the care of individuals who require mechanical ventilation.
MOVES® SLC™ provides the following supplemental functions for patients that it is ventilating or supplying with supplemental oxygen:
The MOVES® SLC™ suction pump is intended for aspiration and removal of fluids, tissue (including bone), gases, bodily fluids or infectious materials from wounds or from a patient’s airway or respiratory support system.
The MOVES® SLC™ is intended to provide supplemental oxygen-enriched air to patients that require supplemental oxygen.
MOVES® SLC™ is intended to monitor physiological parameters of patients and provide these parameters to a health care provider for interpretation in the form of physiological data and system alarms. Physiological data and system alarms will be available to the care provider from the monitor.
MOVES® SLC™ is intended to be operated in a transport and emergency setting.
The intended patient population is adults and pediatric patients who weigh between 10 kg and 120 kg.
NOTE: The automated sphygmomanometer is not intended for use with pregnant patients.
MOVES® SLC™ is intended to be used by, or under the supervision of, medically qualified and trained personnel.
