Easy access to intelligent therapy
From hospital care to homecare, invasive to noninvasive applications, paediatric to adult use, Stellar 150 offers high-quality ventilation in an easy, accessible device.
It also features ResMed’s unique iVAPS (intelligent Volume-Assured Pressure Support) mode.
Light, small and quiet, Stellar 150 is optimal for patients with mobility needs.
A complete ventilation system, Stellar 150 is compatible with a range of ResMed masks, including the Pixi™ mask for children.
The intuitive interface and menus, a user-friendly push dial and a coloured LCD for complete therapy overview with live monitoring—all provide quick and simple navigation.
An oxygen inlet option at the rear of the device makes it easy to connect to the oxygen source for accurate monitoring. The Easy-connect FiO2 kit enables live oxygen monitoring on the device LCD. The integrated pulse oximetry offers hassle-free SpO2 monitoring.
The replaceable air path makes it quick and easy to clean and service Stellar ventilators, minimising any device down-time. The sealed silicone filter, which protects the ventilator from dust and contamination, also contributes to easy maintenance.
Easy patient monitoring
Stellar 150 ventilators combine real-time therapy monitoring with summary and detailed data on all essential parameters.
Real-time onscreen monitoring facilitates easy patient assessment at-a-glance. Used with conjunction with ResMed’s EasyCare Tx software and Tx Link, Stellar 150 enables real-time monitoring and remote titration.
Comprehensive summary and detailed data is available in high and standard resolution. The USB provides convenient data storage, uploads, downloads and easy transfer of therapy settings.
Patient Reminders assist patients and carers by reminding them when to carry out essential tasks, such as replacing filters, masks, etc.
iVAPS: intelligent Volume-Assured Pressure Support
ResMed’s new ventilation mode, iVAPS, uniquely targets alveolar ventilation (i.e. minute ventilation minus dead space) rather than tidal volume or minute ventilation alone.
A mode in itself, rather than a support function, iVAPS is designed to maintain a target alveolar ventilation by automatically adjusting pressure support.
Combining the comfort and synchrony of pressure support with the assurance of a target volume, iVAPS technology maintains appropriate alveolar ventilation even as the patient’s respiratory needs change, such as during different stages of sleep.
Versatile and customisable for a wide range of patients
Suitable for patients with progressive or changing conditions, Stellar 150 is designed to meet the ventilation needs of a wide range of patient groups, including those with OHS (Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome), restrictive lung diseases (e.g. Neuromuscular Disease) and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).
Stellar 150 is suited to those who need higher levels of pressure and oxygen, and those with mobility needs.
The ventilator offers the flexibility of two customisable programs that the clinician can preset, enabling the patient to select the right therapy at the right time.
Learn Circuit: overcoming circuit impedance
At the push of a button and in less than a minute, this inbuilt test evaluates and compensates for any impedance in the circuit caused by filters, tubing and other accessories.
Interface selection and fitting
Selecting the correct mask from the device menu enables Stellar 150 to estimate the amount of intentional leak and make pressure and flow adjustments accordingly.
The Mask Fit feature helps to check that the mask is well-fitted. This is a preliminary step to minimise unintentional leak before actual treatment begins.
With a clear choice of disease-specific, preset parameters to facilitate therapy initiation, the Pathology Defaults feature helps optimise advanced settings, allowing medical staff to focus on and fine-tune the pressure settings required for each individual patient.
Vsync and TiControl™—excellence in synchrony
ResMed’s unique Vsync leak management technology and TiControl™ inspiratory time control feature work hand-in-hand to provide the control and flexibility needed to improve the patient’s ventilation, comfort and quality of sleep.
Designed to optimise patient–ventilator synchrony during noninvasive ventilation (NIV), these technologies help reduce the work of breathing and provide better disease management for individual patients.
Adjustable Trigger and Cycle sensitivities
Five adjustable sensitivity levels provide the flexibility to accommodate a wide range of patients and conditions—even challenging ones. They assist in further fine-tuning patient–ventilator synchrony.
Adjustable Rise Time and Fall Time—fine-tuning pressure transitions
Adjusting the Rise Time and Fall Time allows the device to fine-tune the transitions between inspiratory and expiratory pressures, depending on the patient’s ventilatory demand and respiratory rate.
Light and compact
Excellent design means that Stellar 150 packs a comprehensive range of features, functions and technologies into an easy-to-carry device that weighs just 2.1 kg.
ResMed’s exclusive SlimLine™ tubes enhance the lightness and compactness of the system.
Internal and external battery
Providing continuous therapy for patients on the move, Stellar 150 has an internal battery with 2 hours* capacity, and connects to the optional external battery—ResMed Power Station II (RPS II) offering 8 hours** capacity. An additional RPS II can be connected simultaneously to the ventilator, which automatically switches to the second battery when required, doubling the hours that the ventilator can run on battery.
* 2 hours capacity at EPAP 5 cm H2O, IPAP 15 cm H2O, 20 bpm
** 8 hours capacity per battery at EPAP 5 cm H2O, IPAP 15 cm H2O, 20 bpm
