Reduce intervention, increase protection Condensation is a common issue when ventilating actively humidified patients in the ICU. Excess condensation in the ventilator and breathing system can quickly accumulate, leading to higher airway resistances, compromised ventilator performance and additional work for the patient and clinician.

The Intersurgical InterCooler™ dehumidifier is engineered to remove 100% of excess moisture from the expiratory limb of heated wire breathing systems. InterCooler’s unique patented technology reduces the risk of cross infection by managing all excess fluid in the breathing system, increasing filtration and minimising ambient aerosol release.

InterCooler™ is compatible with all leading ICU ventilators, humidifiers and dual heated wire breathing systems and is the only solution to offer complete control of expiratory condensate.

Protect the patient

• InterCooler allows for a closed breathing system, and helps to:
       • maintain PEEP
       • maintain O2 saturation
• Extend system use for up to 14 days
• Filter remains dry resulting in no increase in expiratory resistance

Protect the ventilator

• Protect ventilator valves and sensors from condensation
• Maintain ventilator performance
• Dry gas allows for high level pleated membrane filtration use on the expiratory limb

Protect the clinician and working environment

• Reduce the risk of cross infection
• Manage excess condensate safely and efficiently
• Collect and remove condensate with easy to use, self-sealing collection bags
• Removed waste fluid is converted to a gel for safe handling and disposal
• Increase filtration efficiency with 7 day, 99.9999% efficient hydrophobic pleated membrane filter

InterCooler™ features and benefits

1. Dry gas returning to the ventilator - protects the valves and sensors from condensation


2. High level pleated mechanical filtration - Dry gas allows for high level pleated mechanical filtration use on the expiratory limb


3. Self sealing condensate collection bag - with gel for safe handling and disposal


4. Visual status indicator for condensate fluid - collection bag replacement
