A range of respiratory device filters to help protect and maintain the equipment used in the care of patients with a chronic respiratory condition.
In line with our commitment to offer customer choice and helping them to meet a variety of clinical needs, we have introduced a range of respiratory device filters to help protect and maintain the equipment used in the care of patients with a chronic respiratory condition, including CPAP, bi-level, non-invasive ventilators, oxygen concentrators and suction devices.
Suitable for use on patients needing long-term ventilatory support or suffering from obstructive sleep apnoea, the range further extends our portfolio of products available in the home care market.
For comprehensive information on the products available and their advantages, please visit the product page or download the full product catalogue.
We are proud to support the European Pressure Ulcer Panel (EPUAP) by raising awareness of pressure ulcers.
A pressure ulcer is a localised injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue usually over a bony prominence, as a result of pressure, or pressure in combination with shear. A number of contributing or confounding factors are also associated with pressure ulcers; the significance of these factors is yet to be elucidated1.
Intersurgical provides two products that can help reduce the occurrence of pressure ulcers on the ear: the Intersurgical EcoLite™ face mask range and nasal cannula with ear guards.
The Intersurgical EcoLite™ adult oxygen range features an extra chin section incorporating two integral seals ensuring that the mask fits a wide range of face shapes. The mask's retaining elastic can be fitted either above or below the patient's ear depending on the patient's face shape. In the preferred below ear position it eliminates the discomfort and longer-term trauma created by elastic sitting on top of the patient's ears.
Our nasal cannula with ear guards is designed to prevent trauma to the patient's ears thanks to the soft silicone foam cushions, which are easily adjusted and securely fitted.

Maintaining a closed breathing system is part of the ventilator care bundle, designed to reduce the incidence of VAP in the hospital.
The new Intersurgical TrachSeal™ Closed suction systems are available for 24 hour or 72 hour usage depending on patient requirements. There are two length options to allow attachment to either endotracheal or tracheostomy tubes.
TrachSeal™ features an ultra clear, new softer sleeve. This allows the clinician greater feel when inserting the catheter with optimum visibility of blockage assessments. Our suction control valve is responsive and allows for single handed control of the applied suction force. The positive locking mechanism is designed to prevent suction being accidentally applied.
The TrachSeal™ range is an addition to our extensive range of breathing systems and accessories for the intensive care area. Please visit our product page for further information, to make an enquiry or request a sample to try.
We hope to meet you at the following event where TrachSeal™ will be demonstrated.
