The specialised product range complements the wide Intersurgical global portfolio of products providing a further choice for both existing and new customers. Products in the range include: a full range of BiTracTM NIV masks and NIV accessories, CPAP delivery devices, Control-CricTM surgical airway, a range of breathing filters, atomised delivery devices and the AccupapTM breathing exercisers.

One-Piece Guedel colour changes

Our range of Guedel oropharyngeal airways is now fully compliant to the colour coding guidance outlined in ISO 5364:2016.

To comply, we changed the colours of four sizes of our One-Piece Guedel Airway range as confirmed below. These are also available in a sterile option.
 
- ISO Size 3.5: Changed from Pink to Light Green
- ISO Size 6.5: Changed from White to Brown
- ISO Size 7.0: Changed from Yellow to White
- ISO Size 9.0: Changed from Orange to Yellow
 
View the full range on our product page or landing page.
 
Our One-piece Guedel airways combine two materials with very different physical characteristics into one moulding, resulting in the elimination of the separate bite block found in all conventional Guedel airway designs. Loose or detached bite blocks constitute a real threat to patient safety and have been the subject of several hazard notices in the past. Our One-piece design overcomes all of the associated risks. As well as improved safety, the One-piece also incorporates a softer tip reducing the risk of trauma to the patient.

Colour coded breathing filters, HMEs and HMEFs

Intersurgical's range of breathing filters are colour coded for ease of identification, minimising any potential risk to the patient.
Our extensive range of breathing filters, Heat and Moisture Exchangers (HMEs) and Heat and Moisture Exchanging Filters (HMEFs) provide an effective barrier that prevents cross contamination between patients, breathing systems, respiratory and anaesthetic equipment, and the clinical environment.

They are colour coded for ease of selection:

• Yellow = Breathing filters
• Blue = HMEs
• Green (yellow + blue) = HMEF (Breathing filter + HME)

Visit our dedicated page to find out more about the key patient safety features of our anaesthetic breathing systems. To view further information about our filter range please visit the filtration and humidification page.
