Silver Knight™ anti-microbial breathing systems provide an additional weapon in the fight against potential cross contamination in the operating room.
contains an anti-microbial additive that uses silver-ions to disrupt the normal enzymatic activities of bacteria. It functions as a safe, quick and effective catalyst to deactivate pathogenic bacteria and prevent their proliferation.
For COVID-19 patients, the disposal of breathing systems on a single-use basis has been recommended for all known diagnosed cases. As elective surgery restarts despite the known risk posed by the COVID-19 this may not always be practical or affordable across the entire patient population undergoing surgical procedures. The adoption of Silver Knight, along with appropriate breathing filters, provides a further opportunity to improve care and patient protection and reduce the risk of cross infection for routine general anaesthesia.
