New LiteScope™ one-piece direct laryngoscope

We are pleased to announce the launch of the LiteScope™ direct laryngoscope, the latest addition to our range of airway management devices and accessories.
LiteScope is a new, one adult size, single use and fully disposable laryngoscope, offering a quick and easy-to-use solution for intubation while maximising patient safety.
 
Unlike a standard laryngoscope, the innovative one-piece design of LiteScope eliminates the need to connect a separate blade and handle, thus saving valuable time in an emergency.
 
LiteScope is ideal for use in:

  • pre-hospital
  • emergency medicine
  • resuscitation
  • anaesthesia
  • intensive care

As a single use, fully disposable laryngoscope, LiteScope eliminates the risks associated with the reprocessing of reusable devices, and therefore provides an ideal solution where there is a concern regarding infection control and also avoids any reprocessing costs.

For further information on LiteScope, or any of our other Airway Management devices, including the innovative i-gel® supraglottic airway, i-view™ video laryngoscope and Guedel airways, please contact us.

Universal Stylet Bougie (USB™)

Introducing the USB - a hybrid stylet and bougie.
The unique design of the USB incorporates two metal inserts with different and distinct properties in-between a more flexible middle section. The USB can easily be manipulated to a variety of angles when used as a stylet, yet has the flexibility when used as a bougie to provide a significantly enhanced level of tracheal ring feedback.  In addition, the hexagonal shape provides less contact with the inner surface of the tracheal tube, providing particularly easy insertion and removal.
 
The USB offers a number of key advantages over traditional bougies and stylets:
  • Hybrid bougie and stylet
  • Improved insertion and removal
  • Improved storage
  • Improved tracheal ring detection

Visit our dedicated website landing page to find out more or make an enquiry.
 
The Universal Stylet Bougie, or USB, represents a significant advance in the design and development of tracheal introducers (bougies) and stylets.

New i-gel® Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine bibliography published

Featuring all known evidence on the use of i-gel® supraglottic airway device in a resuscitation and pre-hospital setting, the new edition includes even more adult, paediatric and manikin studies, case reports and a section on cardiocerebral resuscitation and passive oxygenation.

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, i-gel remains an important option for managing the airway in the emergency and pre-hospital setting, so the opportunity to review the published evidence for the device at this time is particularly valuable.

You can now download the PDF from the i-gel website and through the Education page.

Clinical evidence on the i-gel is also available to view on our evidence database, which includes all studies mentioned in both this bibliography and the standard version.

We hope you find the bibliography and clinical database useful in reviewing evidence published on the i-gel device.

Silver Knight™ anti-microbial breathing systems

Silver Knight™ anti-microbial breathing systems provide an additional weapon in the fight against potential cross contamination in the operating room.
Silver Knight contains an anti-microbial additive that uses silver-ions to disrupt the normal enzymatic activities of bacteria. It functions as a safe, quick and effective catalyst to deactivate pathogenic bacteria and prevent their proliferation.

For COVID-19 patients, the disposal of breathing systems on a single-use basis has been recommended for all known diagnosed cases.  As elective surgery restarts despite the known risk posed by the COVID-19 this may not always be practical or affordable across the entire patient population undergoing surgical procedures. The adoption of Silver Knight, along with appropriate breathing filters, provides a further opportunity to improve care and patient protection and reduce the risk of cross infection for routine general anaesthesia.

To find out more about how Silver Knight can help reduce the risk of cross infection, visit our website product page, view the video or review the supporting information sheet.

Breathing systems and infection control

As elective surgeries slowly resume in some countries following their COVID-19 peak there are continuing infection control challenges.
Breathing systems and all the disposable medical devices used to deliver general anaesthesia play an important role in the reduction of cross-contamination when used appropriately, and in accordance with the local, national or international guidelines.

Intersurgical offers a range of high-quality single-use breathing systems, available in different lengths, configurations and tube types for your clinical requirements.

Intersurgical's FiltaMask™ oxygen mask

FiltaMask™ is an adult medium concentration oxygen mask, combining oxygen delivery with a filter media covering the exhalation ports, and is intended for use on adult patients with respiratory infections who may be a source of aerosolised infectious pathogens and who also require supplementary oxygen.
Features and benefits include:
  • Incurved face seal providing improved level of fit and comfort
  • On-chin positioning providing a better fit to a wider range of face shapes
  • Low elastic position eliminating trauma to the patient's ears
  • Integral filter media reducing the risk of escaping aerosols

Further information on the FiltaMask mask can be found on the product page, and supporting information sheet and oxygen therapy training video. It is also part of the Infection Control range of options which may be used to help reduce the risk of cross contamination between patients and health care workers in the clinical environment.

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.
