Exhibition events 2020

An update regarding Intersurgical’s attendance at exhibitions in 2020.

As a global medical supplier of products essential in the treatment of patients affected by COVID-19, we have a responsibility to protect the health of our staff, NHS staff and prevent the spread of the virus.
 
In order to stay fully functional as a company and continue to supply products into hospitals to help in the fight against COVID-19, we have taken the difficult decision not to attend any exhibition events for the remainder of 2020.

2020 Calendar Competition – July’s Winning Entry!

Duncan Robjohns of Manchester University Foundation Trust takes July’s spot in our 2020 calendar.

When entering Duncan explained why his photo was perfect for the ‘Breath of Fresh Air’ competition, “This was taken on 24th December in Yorkshire near the Gliding club. The air was crisp, the sky was clear, and the beautiful Yorkshire countryside filled my lungs with fresh air.” We felt it was the perfect image for July.

Facing the challenge - Reducing the Risk

Intersurgical’s FiltaMask is designed to reduce the risk to paramedics, hospital staff and visitors.
The Intersurgical 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.

Patients with respiratory infections have specific needs and yet pose a specific risk. Conventional oxygen masks can generate a plume of particles from their exhalation ports, which can travel a distance of 0.4 metres[1][2] resulting in a potential risk.

The Intersurgical FiltaMask is designed to reduce the risk to paramedics, hospital staff and visitors[3].
 
Features and benefits include:
 
• Incurved face seal providing improved level of fit and comfort
• On-chin positioning providing a better fit to a wider range of face shapes
• Low elastic position eliminating trauma to the patient's ears
• Integral filter media reducing the risk of escaping aerosols

New i-view™ video laryngoscope instructional video

A short instructional video is now available for the i-view video laryngoscope.
The video provides a useful guide and overview of the i-view and an introduction to the basic steps for correct use.
With many COVID-19 protocols recommending the use of video laryngoscopy for patients who require intubation, the  i-view provides the option of a single use, fully disposable video laryngoscope with a standard Macintosh blade, making it ideal for use where there is a concern regarding infection control.

The video is available on the dedicated i-view page, product pages and Education video page.
