Intersurgical Helping To Reduce The Risk Of Cross Infection

Intersurgical offer a range of respiratory products offering a number of options which may be used to help reduce the risk of cross contamination between patients and health care workers

i-view video laryngoscope - The i-viewTM is a single-use disposable video laryngoscope with no reusable components and is therefore ideal for use where there are concerns regarding infection control. Furthermore, i-view provides the option of a single-use, disposable video laryngoscope, eliminating the need for reprocessing

TrachSeal closed suction systems - The use of a closed suction system for infection control maintains a closed breathing system and reduces contamination when clearing the lungs of secretions, whilst maintaining ventilation and minimising contamination. We offer a range of 24- and 72-hour usage depending on patient requirements, and two length options to allow attachment to either endotracheal or tracheostomy tubes

High efficiency breathing filters and HMEFS – The only way that a clinician can determine the efficiency and effectiveness of the performance of a breathing filter and HMEF is via independent microbiological test protocols and results. All our filters are tested at specialist microbiology laboratory facilities against clinically relevant bacterial and viral challenge. Our range of HMEFs combine high filtration efficiency with optimal humidification to provide trusted and proven performance to improve infection control

StarMed Respiratory Hoods – The StarMed range of respiratory hoods has been designed for both non-invasive ventilation (NIV) and CPAP therapy providing an alternative patient interface to traditional masks. The NIV hoods create a closed environment that prevents dispersion from leaks during treatment, improving infection control and the protection of the clinician.

FiltaMask™ medium concentration oxygen mask - The FiltaMask™ combines an oxygen delivery system with a filter media covering the exhalation ports. FiltaMask is intended for use on patients with respiratory infections who may be a source of aerosolised infectious pathogens and who also require supplementary oxygen. The FiltaMask is designed to reduce the risk to paramedics, hospital staff and visitors.

Self-sealing in-line T-piece – The Cirrus2 nebuliser is designed to deliver drugs for tracheobronchial deposition. At a driving gas flow of 8 L/min, the Mass Median Diameter (MMD) is 3.1 microns. It is available with a self-sealing T-piece, which enables the nebuliser to be attached (or detached) from the ventilator breathing system without interfering with patient ventilation or inadvertently activating any alarms. If an HMEF is being used and it is essential this stays in place during nebulisation the T-Piece should be positioned between the HMEF and the patient interface, and every effort should be made to minimise system dead space and monitor ventilation. Monitor the HMEF throughout use and replace if increased resistance or contamination occurs.
Protection you can trust for all your clinical needs.
