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.

Intersurgical EcoLite™ high concentration mask

The lightest and most comfortable mask available.
The Intersurgical EcoLite™ high concentration mask is made from a soft thermoplastic elastomer that enables a secure yet comfortable face seal.

The chin section of the mask has been extended and two integral seals ensure that the mask fits a wider range of face shapes.

An incurved nose seal is designed to prevent oxygen entering the patient’s eyes, eliminating the need for a separate metal nose clip making the product MRI compatible.  The unique nose seal is designed to equalise the pressure exerted on the nose as the seal conforms to differing nose shapes. These design features combine to provide an improved seal on the patient’s face, which in turn, results in higher oxygen concentrations as less ambient air enters the mask.

The mask retaining elastic can be fitted either above or below the patient’s ears depending on the patient’s face shape. In the “below ear” position it eliminates the discomfort and longer term trauma created by elastic to the top of the patient’s ears.  A choice of “under chin” or “on chin” positions provides a better fit on a wider range of patient face shapes.

Low resistance safety valves allow the patient to breathe room air should the oxygen supply fail or be inadequate to meet peak flow requirements.

The material forming the body of the mask is clear, permitting visualisation of the patient’s nose and lips. It is also rigid enough to maintain the mask’s shape during transportation and use.

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.

New StarMed product page

We have launched a landing page dedicated to the StarMed range of respiratory hoods for CPAP and NIV therapy and masks for CPAP therapy.
Within the site are sub pages detailing the products available for CPAP and NIV, clinical evidence, product videos, full range details and an enquiry facility.

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.

The StarMed range is part of our complete patient interface range, which also includes FaceFit™ and CPAP masks.

Solus Curve laryngeal mask airway

We are delighted to announce the introduction of Solus™ Curve to our range of laryngeal mask airways.
Solus™ Curve is a sterile, single use, latex free laryngeal mask airway for those who prefer the insertion characteristics of a device with a preformed airway tube. Solus™ Curve provides all the benefits of Standard Solus, including an integral inflation line to reduce the risk of damage whilst in use, a classic cuff shape for optimal performance and a low friction material for atraumatic insertion and removal.

Solus™ Curve is available in three adult sizes and is a welcome addition to our range of supraglottic airways, which includes the innovative 2nd generation i-gel and 1st generation Standard, Satin, Wire Reinforced and MRI Solus™.

The Solus™ video and Solus™ Curve information sheet provide additional details about this range.

TrachSeal™ Closed Suction System range expansion

We have now expanded our range of TrachSeal™ Closed Suction Systems to include saline ampoules (NaCl) sold in individual packets or as part of several combination products.

All of these combination products will feature one closed suction system packaged with an initial supply of ten saline ampoules (NaCl).

Available with 72-hour versions only.

The Intersurgical TrachSeal™ features an ultra clear, new softer sleeve. This allows the clinician greater feel when inserting the catheter with optimum visibility of blockage assessments.  Our suction control valve is responsive and allows for single handed control of the applied suction force. The positive locking mechanism is designed to prevent suction being accidentally applied.
