Imagine the flexibility to have one anaesthesia device platform with high-class safety in every Operating room. The comprehensive set of clinical features and proven ventilation quality make Atlan the ideal anaesthesia workstation for all patients and surgical procedures. The work of the operating room team is closely timed, while patients need to be cared for in the best possible and safe way. Medical technologies can play a large role in these situations in protecting the patient and supporting the treatment outcome. This is where the new Atlan anesthesia workstation family comes in. Thanks to its robust electronic piston ventilator, the Atlan allows for safe and precise intraoperative ventilation of surgical patients, even for neonates. The device is supplied with a system of extensive safety functions, which helps avoid unintentionally high tidal volumes or inspiratory pressures, for example. Beyond this, Atlan also features safety backup functions to increase operational reliability. If, for example, the device is suspected of a technical malfunction or in the case of a power outage, the anesthesiologist can control the ventilation manually in backup-manual-mode at the flip of a switch.

Here are the benefits of Dräger Atlan®

Patient Safety

Atlan offers a wide range of functionalities to help make the anaesthesia process safer for patients and clinical staff. First, customisable screen layouts in combination with Dräger monitoring provide a quick to grasp overview of the patient status just the way you need it. Additionally, decision-support tools assist in making informed and safe decisions.


Atlan is the “can do all” anaesthesia workstation for all your patients, procedures and spatial conditions. The workstation set-up can be tailored to your specific needs and upgraded for later use.

Lung Protection

Perioperative lung-protective ventilation approaches have been demonstrated to reduce the risk for postoperative pulmonary complications. Atlan offers numerous features to support the anaesthesiologist to protect the patient’s lungs during surgery.

Decision Support

In general, anaesthesia workplaces offer a wealth of information and data which are often not well contextualised and can thus be of limited use. Atlan provides meaningful support to help clinicians make informed decisions quickly.

Infection Prevention

Atlan was designed with easy yet effective cleaning in mind. Tool-free disassembly of the breathing system as well as smooth and rounded surfaces ease the cleaning process and enhance compliance with cleaning standards.

Connected Technologies

Continued, networked monitoring with Dräger Infinity® Acute Care System (IACS) allows for uninterrupted surveillance of the patient with a customised, well-organised view of relevant parameters.


Cyber-attacks are an increasing threat for hospitals negatively impacting care and hospital finances. We at Dräger strive to consequently embed cyber security best practices deeply into our development processes.
