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.
