New LiteScope™ one-piece direct laryngoscope

We are pleased to announce the launch of the LiteScope™ direct laryngoscope, the latest addition to our range of airway management devices and accessories.
LiteScope is a new single use and fully disposable laryngoscope, offering a quick and easy-to-use solution for intubation while maximising patient safety. Unlike a standard laryngoscope, the innovative one-piece design of LiteScope eliminates the need to connect a separate blade and handle, thus saving valuable time in an emergency.

Modelled on a Macintosh size 4 blade, the insertion technique is the same as for any standard laryngoscope with a Macintosh blade. LiteScope is ideal for use in:

• pre-hospital
• emergency medicine
• resuscitation
• anaesthesia
• difficult airway
• intensive care

As a single use, fully disposable laryngoscope, LiteScope eliminates the risks associated with the reprocessing of reusable devices, and therefore provides an ideal solution where there is a concern regarding infection control and also avoids any reprocessing costs.

For further information on LiteScope, or any of our other Airway Management devices, including the innovative i-gel® supraglottic airway, i-view™ video laryngoscope and Guedel airways, please contact us.

Patient monitoring

New guidance on patient monitoring from the Association of Anaesthetists, UK.
'Capnography monitoring is essential at all times in patients with tracheal tubes, supraglottic airway devices and those who are sedated to a level unresponsive to verbal commands'

Intersurgical breathing systems, including our Flextube, Uniflow™ and DuoFlow™, benefit from the gas monitoring line being conveniently and safely positioned inside the length of the breathing system in line with the new guidelines.
 
You can find all of the information detailing the new guidelines in the article, ‘Recommendations for standards of monitoring during anaesthesia and recover 2021’ published in the British Journal of Anaesthesia by Klein, A., Meek, T., Allcock, E., Cook, T., Mincher, N., & Morris, C. et al.

NEW PEP Therapy Range

We now offer a range of products for the delivery of Positive Expiratory Pressure therapy (PEP).
The modular design of the product range enables clinicians to select from nine colour coded PEP resistors and two patient interfaces.  The PEP T-piece is supplied with a mouthpiece that can easily be exchanged for a face mask if required, we recommend the use of ClearLite™ anaesthetic face masks. A pressure manometer can be connected to the system using the PEP manometer connector designed to be fitted between the T-piece and PEP resistor.

We will be showcasing this new range at Respiratory Professional Care, from 13-14th October at the NEC, Birmingham. Visit us on Stand RC25, to view the new range alongside further solutions for respiratory physiotherapy.

New HME from Intersurgical - Hydro-Therm™ Micro

We are delighted to introduce the Hydro-Therm™ Micro, our new neonatal Heat and Moisture Exchanger (HME).
Designed for use in many clinical areas such as hospitals, during transport and in a home care setting.

The Hydro-Therm Micro is a small volume, lightweight HME suitable for use on neonates and infant patients with a tidal volume <8ml, making it ideal for use with a tracheostomy, short-term procedures or during transport.

Designed to replicate the functions of the body’s upper airway by conserving expired heat and moisture and returning it to the patient during inhalation, the Hydro-Therm Micro has an open-celled foam HME that optimises surface area and maximises moisture return.

The introduction of the Hydro-Therm Micro supports and expands our existing HME range and provides a further choice in our filtration range. For further information, visit our dedicated filtration and humidification page or contact us to make an enquiry.
