DuoFlow™ bi-lumen breathing system range extension

We are pleased to announce an extension to our range of DuoFlow™ bi-lumen breathing systems, with the introduction of 3m configurations. Duoflow™ bi-lumen breathing systems have an inspiratory and expiratory gas pathway in a single 22mm limb system.
The internally moulded inner septum creates a gas tight division and allows transfer of heat between the inspired and expired gases, optimising the warmth and humidity of the gas. The design means that exposure to the ambient air temperature is reduced and further minimises the cooling of gases, lessening condensate in the system. The system is DEHP free and in addition the single limb design reduces material content and subsequent waste, which reduces the overall impact upon the environment.
