PEP therapy range

We now offer a range of products for the delivery of Positive Expiratory Pressure therapy (PEP).
The modular design of the product range enables clinicians to select from nine colour coded PEP resistors and two patient interfaces.  The PEP T-piece is supplied with a mouthpiece that can easily be exchanged for a face mask if required, we recommend the use of ClearLiteTM anaesthetic face masks. A pressure manometer can be connected to the system using the PEP manometer connector designed to be fitted between the T-piece and PEP resistor.

New guidance on patient monitoring from the Association of Anaesthetists

'Capnography monitoring is essential at all times in patients with tracheal tubes, supraglottic airway devices and those who are sedated to a level unresponsive to verbal commands' (1)


Intersurgical offer three types of anaesthetic breathing system - Flextube, Uniflow™ and DuoFlow™ - with the gas monitoring line conveniently and safety positioned inside the length of the breathing system.

By anchoring the monitoring line securely inside the breathing system it provides optimal positioning for accurate and reliable gas monitoring and eliminates the need for additional ports in either the Y-piece or filter/HMEF. This therefore avoids any possibility of accidental disconnection in use or misconnections.

We also offer a wide range of accessories and monitoring lines to allow safe and consistent monitoring of the patient's inspired and expired gases during general anaesthesia.

Our DuoFlow™ bi-lumen anaesthetic breathing system includes an inspiratory and expiratory gas pathway in a single 22mm limb system - one limb, two functions. The single limb design decreases the weight of the breathing system when compared with a traditional “Y” piece and therefore reduces potential pull or torsion placed on the patient’s airway connection.  In addition, being single limb, there is a reduction in material content and subsequent waste, which substantially lowers the overall impact upon the environment.

For further information on our extensive anaesthetic breathing system range please visit our product pages or contact us.

Patient monitoring

New guidance on patient monitoring from the Association of Anaesthetists, UK.
In May 2021, the Association of Anaesthetists, UK, published new guidelines on patient monitoring emphasising the importance of CO2 monitoring. The updated guideline now states:
 
'Capnography monitoring is essential at all times in patients with tracheal tubes, supraglottic airway devices and those who are sedated to a level unresponsive to verbal commands'

Intersurgical breathing systems, including our Flextube, Uniflow™ and DuoFlow™, benefit from the gas monitoring line being conveniently and safely positioned inside the length of the breathing system in line with the new guidelines.
 
You can find all of the information detailing the new guidelines in the article, Recommendations for standards of monitoring during anaesthesia and recover 2021’ published in the British Journal of Anaesthesia by Klein, A., Meek, T., Allcock, E., Cook, T., Mincher, N., & Morris, C. et al.
