Intersurgical acquires Pulmodyne

Intersurgical is delighted to announce the acquisition of Pulmodyne, a USA and Malaysian based manufacturer, specialising in high quality innovative airway and respiratory products for use in prehospital, emergency care, critical care and the home. 
The specialised product range complements the wide Intersurgical global portfolio of products providing a further choice for both existing and new customers. Products in the range include: a full range of BiTracTM NIV masks and NIV accessories, CPAP delivery devices, Control-CricTM surgical airway, a range of breathing filters, atomised delivery devices and the AccupapTM breathing exercisers.

The acquisition will provide Intersurgical with an enhanced presence in the USA market and provide an opportunity for increased sales of the Pulmodyne ranges through the extensive global Intersurgical network.

One-Piece Guedel colour changes

Our range of Guedel oropharyngeal airways is now fully compliant to the colour coding guidance outlined in ISO 5364:2016.

To comply, we changed the colours of four sizes of our One-Piece Guedel Airway range as confirmed below. These are also available in a sterile option.
 
- ISO Size 3.5: Changed from Pink to Light Green
- ISO Size 6.5: Changed from White to Brown
- ISO Size 7.0: Changed from Yellow to White
- ISO Size 9.0: Changed from Orange to Yellow
 
View the full range on our product page or landing page.
 
Our One-piece Guedel airways combine two materials with very different physical characteristics into one moulding, resulting in the elimination of the separate bite block found in all conventional Guedel airway designs. Loose or detached bite blocks constitute a real threat to patient safety and have been the subject of several hazard notices in the past. Our One-piece design overcomes all of the associated risks. As well as improved safety, the One-piece also incorporates a softer tip reducing the risk of trauma to the patient.

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.

Patient Monitoring

'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 safely 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.
