About Glostavent® Portable DPA02

Versatility is a key feature of the Glostavent® DPA02 portable anaesthesia machine.

Lightweight and assembled in two minutes, the DPA02 is supplied in a tough Peli case – the size of a briefcase – making it safe and easy to transport as hand luggage on a plane. At short notice you can be where you need to be with the right equipment to save lives.
