Airstream 2

2 Cell Cycle Alternating Pressure Air Mattress - Full Replacement

The NoDec Airstream 2 is a new generation, large cell, double layered, alternating pressure air mattress that provides effective care and protection from pressure injuries in patients at high and very high risk.

The 10 minute, two cell-cycle action will accelerate the healing of existing pressure injuries by stimulating reactive hyperaemia in the deep tissues around the vulnerable bony prominences.

Characterised by its ability to maintain a significant pressure differential between inflated and deflated cells, with the patient on the mattress, the Airstream 2 is ideal for acutely ill patients after stabilisation, mobility restricted patients (e.g. general medicine, orthopaedic) or patients whose condition is deteriorating (e.g. palliative care, oncology, respiratory).

In-built pressure sensors along with sophisticated electronic and pneumatic circuitry allows for efficient changes in air-cell pressures and automatic adjustment to patient weight and body position.  Advanced engineering and a powerful compressor have enabled the creation of a dynamic support surface that is therapeutic for patients weighing up to 220kg.

Key Features:

  • The integrated air-cell structure, where air-cells in each layer are ultrasonically welded together to provide 2 layers of conjoined cells (held firmly in position by side clips) remove interface pressure during the deflation from exactly the same place it was applied when inflation occurred. Each deflating cell efficiently retracts away from body contact creating defined areas of high then low pressure.
  • The unique mattress construction of Airstream 2 is comfortable and safe for even the most frail of patients. A permanently inflated base layer of longitudinally placed, conjoined air-cells contains a large volume of air at low pressure which enhances patient comfort and makes 'bottoming out' impossible even with a patient sitting up in bed.
  • Two extra-large air-cells along each side of this base layer provide a firm and stable edge to the mattress and protect patients from falls as they transfer out of bed to trolley or chair.
Airstream 2
Pressure relief10 minute alternating 2-cell cycle provides effective pressure variation through rapid air cell deflation.
Ultrasonically welded cell structureAll cells in each layer are ultrasonically welded together to eliminate air cell encroachment and allow each deflating cell to efficiently retract away from body contact.
Solenoid technologyEnhances pressure relief by providing a more efficient flow of air in and out of the cells therefore a superior reactive hyperaemic response in the deep tissues about the bony prominences
Dual layer of air cellsTop cells provide alternating pressure relief while bottom layer of permanently inflated cells provides support and safety from patient bottoming out
Easily accessible CPR facilityIntuitive, always visible and accessible CPR release valve located on umbilical provides rapid deflation in approx. 10 seconds.
Integrated side formersPermanently inflated side formers provide a firm mattress edge to ensure patient stabilisation and fall prevention (NSQHS standard 10) during exits or transferring to a trolley/chair.
Permanently inflated support deckLower deck of permanently inflated longitudinal cells improves patient comfort and safety whilst eliminating bottoming out.
Comfort controlAdjustable comfort control available within both Static and Dynamic modes provide nursing staff with the ability to adjust air cell inflation pressures to suit individual patient comfort or clinical requirements.
Timed Static modeProvides a firm and stable surface for essential nursing procedures such as physiotherapy and wound cleaning. A safety automatic return to Dynamic mode after 30 minutes ensures that patients are not put at risk of pressure damage.
Auto-adjustmentAutomatically adjusts pressure settings in response to patient weight and position to optimise pressure relief and ensure that staff are not burdened with difficult product ser-up.
30 hour transport modeEasy to operate one way valve lets mattress remain inflated for at least 30 hours and also facilitates patient/bed movement without unnecessary risk to patient.
Audible and visual alarmsA sophisticated set of audible and visual alarm functions provide enhanced patient safety and ensures peace of mind for nursing staff.
Cable management systemConvenient power cable storage to ensure safety by preventing it becoming a trip hazard and also avoid cable damage.
Dartex cover with welded seamsSoft, easy to clean, waterproof Dartex cover provides a complete barrier against viruses and blood, minimising infection control risks.
Unique anti-hammocking coverUnique pre-tensioned design ensures that the cover conforms tightly to the cell shape thereby eliminating hammocking across the deflated cell and optimising the zero pressure phase of the cycle.
