How to Set Up Your New Mallard 2800 Large Animal Anesthesia Ventilator

Congratulations on your purchase of a new Mallard ventilator! In this article, we'll go through the steps to get your system up and running with the help of Doug Mueller, who is an expert in the field. Before you get started, there are a few things you need to know to ensure a smooth setup process.


First, take a look at the top of your ventilator's control box where you'll find two manuals - the new user step by step guide and the operation instructions and routine maintenance manual. These will provide you with helpful information, safety tips, and other important details that will make your setup process easier.


Your Mallard ventilator system comes with three main components - the control box, the bells on the bottom, and the absorber circuit. Before you start the setup process, inspect the entire system for any damage, scratches, dents, or cracks. Make sure everything looks good, and all gauges are in good condition.


One of the most important things to keep in mind during the setup process is that the system has four swivel wheels, and two of them are locking wheels. It's essential to lock these in place when you're ready to begin the installation process so that the system stays in place and doesn't move around.


Another important aspect to keep in mind is the air pressure. If you're ordering your system domestically, you'll have a green hose, and if you're ordering internationally, you'll have a white hose. When you hook up the air, your gauge will tell you the exact amount of air coming into the system. It's crucial to keep an eye on this and make sure that you have at least 60 psi coming into the machine for it to function normally.


In conclusion, setting up your new Mallard ventilator is a straightforward process that can be done with ease if you follow the steps outlined above. By carefully inspecting your system and following the instructions, you'll have a functional and efficient ventilator in no time.
