Adult and pediatric ventilator FOR HOSPITALS
ResMed Stellar 150 Ventilator ResMed’s Stellar 150 ventilator is well suited for a wide range of hospital care environments. It’s designed for invasive and noninvasive (NIV) applications on adult and pediatric patients and offers reliable, intelligent ventilation in one easy, accessible device.
Light, small and quiet, the Stellar 150 combines simplicity with advanced technologies, such as ResMed’s iVAPS, Vsync and TiControl™. From set-up to therapy management and monitoring, Stellar 150 helps establish confidence among clinical staff.
Designed for versatility, the Stellar 150 is a noninvasive ventilator with invasive capabilities. Offering a comprehensive range of therapy modes, Stellar treats a wide range of adult and paediatric patient types with changing respiratory needs. From those who need NIV during their hospital stay to chronic patients at home with conditions, such as COPD, NMD, and OHS, Stellar is a versatile system designed with its end-users in mind.
Delivering optimal therapy to suit your patients
Stellar 150 also offers IntelligentAir, a collection of ResMed technologies that deliver individually-responsive ventilation to suit your patients, with: intelligent Volume-Assured Pressure Support (iVAPS) mode to target their alveolar ventilation; an intelligent Backup Rate (iBR) to provide backup breaths when needed; and AutoEPAP to maintain upper airway patency.
Meeting the demands of fast-paced hospitals
Taking into consideration the busy hospital environment and typical workflows, Stellar’s intuitive menus simplify the setup process, while its real-time display makes monitoring quick and available at a glance.

- Personalized efficacy and comfort: various features allow you to easily fine-tune settings to suit your patients’ needs: Vsync and TiControl™: proven ResMed technologies for leak compensation and inspiratory management for excellence in NIV. Ramp and ramp down: gradually increases and decreases the pressure support delivered to help ease your patients into and out of therapy sessions. 5 Trigger: trigger and cycle sensitivity levels can be fine-tuned according to your patient’s given condition. Rise and fall times: transition times between inspiratory and expiratory pressures can be adjusted to suit your patient’s inspiratory and expiratory needs.
- An internal battery: 2 hours of continuous power
- External batteries: the power of one– or two – RPS II external batteries, each providing an extra 8 hours’ capacity
- A DC-DC converter: plug in mobility for use anywhere with a DC outlet, including cars
- Custom-built mobility bags: protecting the ventilator while out and about
- A quality build and durable body: rigorously tested to withstand day-to-day use
Stellar provides the following modes:
- CPAP mode—a fixed pressure is delivered.
- S (Spontaneous) mode—the device senses the patient breath and triggers IPAP in response to an increase in flow, and cycles into EPAP at the end of inspiration. The breath rate and the respiratory pattern will be determined by the patient.
- ST (Spontaneous/Timed) or PS (Pressure Support) mode—the device augments any breath initiated by the patient, but will also supply additional breaths should the patient breath rate fall below the clinician’s set ’backup’ breath rate.
- T (Timed) mode—the fixed breath rate and the fixed inspiration time set by the clinician are
supplied regardless of patient effort.
- PAC (Pressure Assist Control)—the inspiration time is preset in the PAC mode. There is no spontaneous/flow cycling. The inspiration can be triggered by the patient when the respiratory rate is above a preset value, or time-triggered breaths will be delivered at the backup breath rate.
- iVAPS (intelligent Volume Assured Pressure Support)—designed to maintain a preset target alveolar ventilation by monitoring delivered ventilation, adjusting the pressure support and providing an intelligent backup breath automatically. The iVAPS therapy mode is indicated for patients 66 lb (30 kg) and above.
