Personalized Pressure™ Technology
Unpack the ATS. 1200 Tourniquet upon receipt and inspect the unit for any obvious damage that may have occurred during shipment. We recommend that this inspection be performed by a qualified biomedical engineer or other person thoroughly familiar with electronic medical devices. If the unit is damaged, notify the carrier and your Zimmer.
Limb Occlusion Pressure (LOP)
Technology that's designed to calculate a patient pressure at an individual level and apply a minimum amount of tourniquet pressure needed to occlude a limb at a specific time for a specific patient. Lower tourniquet cuff pressure reduces postoperative wound complications after TKA.
An 8.4' color touchscreen that increases visibility to read across operating rooms.
Other great features including a 6 hour lithium Ion battery and dual ports
Advanced Leak Detection
Technology that monitors a cuff for minor variations intraoperatively with the intention of reporting potential cuff/hose leaks.
Pre-op Cuff Test
Technology that allows for bedside testing of cuff pre-operatively to ensure proper function.
Zimmer ATS 3000 Tourniquet
Soma Technology s a one-stop shop for a wide variety of medical equipment. We house complete solutions for operating rooms, medical facilities, and most departments of a hospital. The Zimmer ATS 3000 is a great choice for a tourniquet. Tourniquets are used in surgical procedures to stop the flow of blood from the section being operated on.
Zimmer ATS 3000 Tourniquet Features
Zimmer is a leading manufacturer of medical equipment. The ATS 3000 has many technologically up to date features. Pneumatic tourniquets use electricity to control how much pressure is applied to the body to stop the flow of blood. The use of ambient air is also applied.
The ATS 3000 is intended to be used by qualified medical professionals to temporarily occlude blood flow in a patient’s extremities during surgical procedures. The most popular surgeries in which this device are used include knee, upper and lower extremity arthroplasties. The system can self-check with calibration to automatically measure the machine’s units each time it is powered on. The machine will let the user know with cuff alerts when the machine goes on standby. Cuff Lockout feature prompts the user to confirm when deflation is happening. This command during bilateral or IVRA procedures reduces complications due to a sudden cuff deflation.

- Reduction of certain fractures
- Kirschner wire removal
- Tumor and cyst removal
- Subcutaneous fasciotomy
- Nerve injuries
- Tendon repair
- Bone grafts
- Total wrist and joint replacement
- Replacement of joints in the fingers
- Knee joint replacements
The patient’s limb occlusion pressure (LOP) is the lowest pressure required to stop the flow of blood in the extremity. The Zimmer ATS 3000 has the ability to estimate the patients’ limb occlusion pressure base on their physiological characteristics. This unit can take into account anticipated changes in blood pressure during the procedure by adding an additional pressure margin to the LOP measurement at the end of the LOP determination. The additional pressure margin added to the measurement is referred to as the recommended tourniquet pressure (RTP).
ATS 3000 Specifications
The ATS 3000 is mounted on a pole and is easily transported in between operating rooms. The total weight is 16.3 pounds but will feel lighter due to its mount. The battery is rechargeable and lasts for 4 amp hours. The unit can operate on battery power for 240 minutes with a fully charged battery. The power cord can extend up to 14 feet. The maximum pressure that can be applied to a cuff is 475 mmHg. The timer can be set for a range of 5 to 240 minutes with 1-minute increments.
While the ATS 3000 has been designed and manufactured to high industry standards, it is recommended that regular inspection and calibration be performed to ensure continued safe and effective operation. Tests and inspections should be made at least every 6 months.
