Navigator Applications Suite highlights:
Navigator Applications Suite is a software package that includes Navigator Therapy, Navigator Protocol and Navigator Device. Navigator software receives data from supported GE anesthesia delivery systems, GE anesthesia patient monitors and intravenous drug infusion pumps.
Navigator Therapy is a technology that analyzes drug therapy information to model and predict the effect of supported anesthesia-related drugs and drug interactions. It helps clinicians determine effective treatment plans for each patient, and adjust the treatment as needed based on quick access to centralized and relevant information.
Navigator Protocol centralizes your hospital's own care protocols at the point of need for immediate access and reference. Navigator Device troubleshoots technical problems in the anesthesia machine and provides specific step- by-step instructions on how to resolve a device issue. Navigator Applications Suite is one component of the GE Carestation - the intelligent way of managing life-critical information to help you make informed decisions for patients.

At ASA 2006, GE launched the PCV-VG mode on its Aisys Carestation, becoming the first company in the world to bring the PCV-VG mode to the operating room. This year, the mode is available on the Avance Carestation. This compact, integrated anesthesia carestation combines advanced anesthesia delivery, patient monitoring and information management into an integrated perioperative system. The PCV-VG mode delivers all the benefits of pressure control ventilation at the same time it provides a consistent tidal volume to the patient. The benefits of pressure control ventilation include:
