Our anaesthetic modular breathing systems are a range of standard breathing systems designed to help improve safety and meet the majority of clinical situations whilst improving inventory management and reduces waste.
All systems benefit from an integrated monitoring line and Silver Knight™ anti-microbial additive improving patient safety and reducing the risk of cross contamination in the operating room.
A choice of either Flextube or UniFlow™ breathing systems in a range of tube lengths from 1.6m to 5.6m and the option of Compact™ or Flextube™ bagging limbs. The Anaesthetic Modular Breathing Systems provide maximum product flexibility whilst minimising unnecessary waste and providing improved security of supply.
For ease of reference the new Anaesthetic Modular Breathing Systems uses the last 2 digits of each product code to indicate the length of the breathing system or limb. For example, 2919016 is 1.6m in length.
Helping in the fight against Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs)
In the continued fight against Hospital Acquired Infections, Intersurgical has developed the Silver Knight™ range of products with an anti-microbial additive to further enhance patient safety. This anti-microbial, silver-based ion additive has been introduced to a range of breathing systems for both anaesthesia and intensive care use. Testing to ISO Standard 22196 shows a reduction in bacterial viable count by 99.9% against controls1.
How does it work?
Silver Knight™ is 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. This technology allows the ions to be released in small quantities over time to reduce microbial growth within, and on, the surface of the breathing systems.
Silver Knight™ is proven1 to help reduce the incidence of MRSA infection and other organisms including Staphyloccus epidermis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter calcoaceticus and Escherichia coli.
