For many years Intersurgical has been one of the leading suppliers of Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Respiratory products to the Canadian hospital market.

Everyone at Intersurgical Canada is fully committed to enhancing the service and support to our valued customers. We are delighted to have this opportunity and will continue to provide the highest quality of products and service.

The Canadian website features full product listings for all our product groups, covering airway management, anaesthesia, critical care and oxygen and aerosol therapy.

We will continue to add new posts as further studies are released - so keep checking for the latest supporting material.

Highlighting the benefits for both patient and care giver, the site is designed to be simple to use and packed with useful information on each StarMed product in the range, including information sheets to download.

We hope you find this mini site a useful tool in understanding how the StarMed range can result in improved therapy for patients.

UniFlow™ coaxial breathing systems

Intersurgical provide a wide range of universal coaxial breathing systems to fit all anaesthetic machines and ventilators and are ideally suited for low flow anaesthesia for adults and children >5Kg.
UniFlow is a convenient, single limb tube-within-a-tube breathing system that provides warmer, humid inspiratory gases and the option of an integrated respiratory gases monitoring line. UniFlow incorporates a large 30mm diameter outer lumen minimising the resistance to flow of the expired gases so the patient will not experience unacceptable resistance during spontaneous breathing.

The UniFlow deluxe coaxial breathing system incorporates an APL valve, 2L reservoir bag and two different monitoring line lengths allowing the system to be used for anaesthesia induction, low flow anaesthesia and delivery of supplemental oxygen in recovery and transport.

The Silver Knight™ anti-microbial range of UniFlow coaxial breathing systems contain a silver-based ion additive to further enhance patient safety by helping to reduce the incidence of Hospital Acquired Infections(1).

All UniFlow systems come with a leak tester to easily test the integrity of the inner lumen as recommended by the AAGBI(2). Safety is assured as both the inner and outer lumens can be properly and independently tested for leaks.

The UniFlow range of ‘universal’ coaxial anaesthetic breathing systems has been designed to meet the demands of changing clinical practice and user demands. 

For further information visit the product range, Silver-Knight™ landing page or make an enquiry.
