TrachSealTM Closed Suction System
Closed suction systems
Every time any part of a breathing system is opened to the atmosphere a number of problems for both the patient and nursing staff can occur:
• There is an immediate loss of PEEP to the patient and a
• potential for compromising patient ventilation
Oxygen desaturation may have an impact on the patient’s
• overall condition
Bacteria and other pathogens may  nd their way into the lungs
• with the introduction of an open catheter
A coughing re ex by the patient may put the healthcare provider at risk from cross-infection
Since the introduction of closed suction systems in 1987, care providers have been offered a solution to keep the breathing system, and consequently PEEP, intact resulting in patient ventilation uncompromised.
Closed suction enables the clinician to clear the lungs of secretions while maintaining ventilation and minimising contamination with the least possible disruption to the patient.
Prevention of VAP
Ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) is a hospital acquired infection, which can be ef ciently fought when applying certain strategies. It has a signi cant impact on patient’s health, length of stay and hospital cost.
Closed suction greatly reduces the potential for contamination from the bacteria which cause VAP. Maintaining a closed breathing system is part of the ventilator care bundle, designed to reduce the incidence of VAP in the hospital.
Another important factor in infection control is the cough re ex of the patient. By using a closed suction system the care provider reduces the risk of cross infection by aerosolised pathogens.
Intersurgical TrachSeal closed suction systems
TrachSeal features an ultra clear, new softer sleeve, allowing the clinician greater feel when inserting the catheter with optimum visibility of blockage assessments.
Our suction control valve is responsive and allows for single handed control of the applied suction force. The positive locking mechanism is designed to prevent suction being accidentally applied.

1. Day stickers which easily identify change requirements
2. 15F–22F catheter mount for  exible connection to the patient 3. A disconnection wedge for removal of the closed suction
