AMSORB° PLUS is a revolutionary carbon dioxide absorbent which does not degrade inhaled anaesthetics to carbon monoxide, formaldehyde or Compound A.
Carbon dioxide absorbents are essential to the modern practice of anaesthesia. However, it has been widely reported that their use also enables the production of toxic byproducts, such as carbon monoxide (CO), formaldehyde and Compound A .
From the manufacturers of the world's first strong alkali-free absorbent, AMSORB°, now comes AMSORB° PLUS...
AMSORB° PLUS is specifically designed for low and minimal flow anaesthesia. Its absorption capacity, intensity and uniformity of colour change have been improved from the original AMSORB°.
The chemical composition remains unaltered but the manufacturing process has been carefully developed to deliver enhanced absorption capability.
AMSORB° PLUS remains the world's only carbon dioxide absorbent capable of complete prevention of anaesthetic degredation. AMSORB° PLUS is the safest absorbent available.
Many conventional soda limes and even some new generation absorbents claim suitability for safe low flow anaesthesia.
However, many of these still contain sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and some potassium hydroxide (KOH).
Research has shown that the presence of sodium hydroxide, at any level, provides the basis for anaesthetic agent dehalogenation.
AMSORB° PLUS is the only absorbent to ensure that gas delivery is free from potentially toxic chemicals.
