Reduced Risk of Contaminationy
Closed system and reduction in circuit breaks lowers the risk of contamination reaching the patient, clinician or ventilator.
Reduced Patient Risk
Minimises need to open or break the circuit to remove excess rain-out, therefore decreasing the risk of Ventilator Acquired Pneumonia.1
Reduced Risk of Resistance
Less risk of increased resistance to gas flow from fluid build-up in the expiratory limb or filter.2
