Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) still present a major challenge to you and your patients. So to provide you with another weapon in the ongoing fight against HAIs we add silver ion additives to our breathing system material to help slow down the proliferation of microorganisms.
A range of Silver Knight™ breathing systems for anaesthesia and intensive care are available offering you an option to help reduce the risks of cross infection.
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 breathing systems are all validated for up to seven days use, and remain active, in unopened packaging, for up to five years. Silver Knight is proven to help reduce the incidence of MRSA infection and other organisms including:
• Staphyloccus epidermis
• Pseudomonas aeruginosa
• Klebsiella pneumoniae
• Acinetobacter calcoaceticus
• Escherichia coli
