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

Filtration and humidification

The recent reported outbreak of respiratory infections in the Chinese city of Wuhan has been identified as being caused by 2019-nCoV (2019 Novel Coronavirus).

The number of reports of infection has been rising quickly during January 2020, with 2798 confirmed cases at time of writing.  The current assessment from the World Health Organisation (WHO) is that the risk of this event remains ‘very high’ in China, and ‘high’ at a regional and global level. Keep up to date with the latest news on the WHO website.
 
The Intersurgical filter range provides an effective barrier that prevents cross contamination between patients, respiratory equipment and the clinical environment.  We provide a choice of electrostatic and pleated mechanical filters that have been independently tested and proven to be highly efficient, providing trusted protection against bacterial and viral cross contamination.
