DRE has a solution you won’t want to miss for your aging anesthesia system!


Recently both GE and Drager have announced limited service and discontinued parts for a number of popular anesthesia systems. This means medical facilities operating these machines may not be able to efficiently address future technical and service issues. Keeping these machines running can become a liability, slow operations, and pile up unexpected costs. Below is a list of affected systems:

  • Datex-Ohmeda Excel 210
  • Datex-Ohmeda Excel 210 SE
  • Datex-Ohmeda Modulus SE
  • Datex-Ohmeda Modulus II
  • Drager Narkomed (2B, 2C, 4)
  • Drager Narkomed GS

Based on the model and condition of the anesthesia machine, DRE will offer trade-in allowances toward the purchase of a new Penlon Prima SP2 anesthesia system or one of our professionally refurbished alternatives.

The Penlon Prima SP2 has advanced, easy-to-use features for maximum patient safety. The Prima SP 2 offers ultra-low flow anesthesia with up to four gases, a six-mode touchscreen ventilator, autoclavable absorber and accurate Penlon vaporizers.

DRE’s refurbished anesthesia machines provided advanced clinical options that are significantly more cost effective than upgrading to GE and Drager’s newest platforms. Refurbished anesthesia machines can cost 30 to 70 percent less than new equipment and the familiarity can cut time training staff on new technology. DRE’s factory trained and certified biomedical staff has more than 28 years of experience of bringing currently used equipment back to manufacturer recommended specifications. Some of our refurbished anesthesia options applicable for this offer are:
