'7 steps' in anaesthesia

The '7 steps' to help improve patient and environmental safety in anaesthesia summarises the patient safety features and environmental advantages of using an Intersurgical breathing system.

  1. Integral monitoring lines – Intersurgical’s modular breathing systems include an integral gas monitoring line which helps to improve accuracy and reduce  patient connections.
  2. Silver Knight™ - Antimicrobial silver ions within our Silver Knight™ breathing systems help to reduce bacteria proliferation and minimise cross-contamination.
  3. Tethered caps – All Intersurgical anaesthetic breathing systems have brightly coloured and tethered luer caps, which help reduce the risk of foreign body aspiration during ventilation.
  4. Push and twist – Intersurgical’s unique Push and Twist feature ensures a secure, leak free fit every time.
  5. Colour coded filters – Intersurgical’s filter range is colour coded for ease of identification and to ensure the correct filter/HME is used at the correct position within the breathing system, minimising any potential harm to the patient.
  6. Intersurgical sodalime – The absorbency capacity of Spherasorb™ means that fewer kilos  are used per hour of anaesthesia than many other absorbents and production waste is recycled back into usable soda lime, reducing the amount of waste.
  7. Reduce your environmental impact - Intersurgical’s ClearLite™ face mask offers a 72% reduction in environmental impact compared to a traditional PVC mask.
