SPANZA/APAGBI 2019

Come and visit our team at the Society for Paediatric Anaesthesia in New Zealand and Australia (SPANZA) Annual Scientific Meeting 2019.
Our team will be there to demonstrate the i-gel® supraglottic airway device, paediatric breathing systems, breathing filters and ClearLite™ anaesthetic face mask range.

This year's event is co-hosted by the Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (APAGBI), producing an international conference on the theme of 'changing tides', which represents the changes in ideas that will challenge attendees during the meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you to our stand at SPANZA 2019.

New oxygen recovery t-piece with reservoir bag

Our new recovery device is designed to deliver supplementary oxygen to post-operative, spontaneously breathing patients in transport and recovery.
Featuring a standard 15mm connector for connection to supraglottic airways or tracheal tubes, the reservoir bag material used provides an audible and visual indication of respiration.

The lightweight design means there is minimal pull on the patient’s airway during transfer from operating room to recovery while the airway is still in place.

ClearLite™ anaesthetic face masks

ClearLite is a new range of phthalate and PVC-free anaesthetic face masks available with or without a hook ring.

The range is lightweight and crystal clear with a colour-coded seal for ease of size selection.  The range is available in seven sizes - from 0 (neonatal) through to size 6 (large adult) - to meet the clinical needs of all patient types and sizes.

Due to the enhanced anatomical design and flexible, non-inflatable cuff, the ClearLite mask offers superior seal performance with minimum pressure, reducing the risk of unnecessary discomfort and potential trauma. The superior seal can also assist the clinician in providing optimum manual ventilation of the patient in both the anaesthetic and emergency situation.

As the ClearLite mask is phthalate and PVC free, and is available without a hook ring, it significantly reduces waste and minimises the impact on the environment.

To find out more about the range please visit the product page to review the information sheet and video.

ClearLite - a clear choice to reduce your impact on the environment.

Introducing the new i-view™ video laryngoscope

Video laryngoscopy wherever and whenever you intubate.
i-view™ is the new single use, fully disposable video laryngoscope from Intersurgical, providing the option of video laryngoscopy in the ER, ICU, maternity or the pre-hospital environment. 
 
By incorporating a Macintosh blade, i-view can also be used for direct laryngoscopy and the technique for insertion is more familiar and instinctive than for devices with a hyper-angulated blade. Its ergonomic design ensures i-view is easy to use, and the integral LCD screen provides an optimal view in a variety of light conditions.

By combining all the advantages of a fully integrated video laryngoscope in a single use, disposable product, i-view provides a cost-effective solution.
 
In addition, i-view is ready to use seconds after removing from the packaging.

i-gel O2 Resus Pack included in TCCC guidelines

We are delighted to announce that earlier this year the Intersurgical i-gel O2 Resus Pack* was included in the US Military Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) guidelines for securing an airway in the Tactical Evacuation (TACEVAC) phase of care.

TCCC is the standard of care for Prehospital Battlefield Medicine and TACEVAC relates to the care given to a casualty whilst still under fire on the battlefield. The Committee on TCCC issue and regularly update guidelines. These guidelines include airway management and the use of supraglottic airways. 
 
The original TCCC guidelines were published in 1996 and an update in 2012 reaffirmed support for the use of SADs for the TACEVAC phase of care, but did not recommend a specific device, as they did not feel there was sufficient evidence at the time to do so. However, in the latest update, i-gel has been designated as the 'preferred Extraglottic Airway (EGA)' as it was decided it had a number of characteristics that make it favourable for use on the battlefield.
 
They concluded that current evidence suggests the i-gel performs as well or better than the other SADs available and has other advantages in:
 
• Ease of training
• Size & weight
• Cost
• Safety
• Simplicity of use
 
The gel-filled cuff in the i-gel both eliminates the need for cuff pressure monitoring during flight and reduces the risk of pressure-induced neuropraxia to cranial nerves in the oropharynx and hypopharynx as a complication of SAD use.
 
The latest changes to the TCCC guidelines does the following things:
 
• Adds extraglottic airways (EGAs) as an option for airway management in Tactical Field Care;
• Recommends the i-gel as the preferred EGA in TCCC because its gel-filled cuff makes it simpler to use than EGAs with air-filled cuffs and also eliminates the need for monitoring of cuff pressure;
 
You can find all of the above details confirmed in the abstract of the article, 'Extraglottic Airways in Tactical Combat Casualty Care: TCCC Guidelines Change 17-01 28 August 2017 published in the Journal of Special Operations Medicine by Otten EJ, Montgomery HR, Butler FK Jr.

Create your oral care programme

View our choice of toothbrushes, day kits and protocols for ICU patient care.

Ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) is a major cost concern in modern hospitals. A combination of oral care treatments in a proper oral care protocol means care providers can more efficiently prevent oropharyngeal bacterial biofilm build up. This in turn leads to a reduction of VAP and aspiration pneumonias and greatly reduces associated treatment costs.

Our extensive choice of soft-bristle toothbrushes, treatment packs and OroCareTM day kits with mouthwash offers you all the tools needed to create your own oral care programme.

Full descriptions and clinical evidence are available to help make the choice easier. Please contact us to discuss options further.

One-piece™ Guedel airways: Safer by design

How many Guedel airways have an integral bite block? Just one
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 by combining 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.

We have an online resource containing all product information on our One-piece Guedel airway, including a video and information sheet.  Make an enquiry for further information.
