Intersurgical Silver Knight Anaesthetic Breathing Systems

Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI) is a major concern in many hospitals. Patients who contract HAIs often endure a prolonged hospital stay and require additional expensive treatment. In Operating Theatres one of the sources of potential cross-contamination is the outside of the anaesthetic breathing system, especially when these are used on multiple patients.

Intersurgical is the only manufacturer of Silver Knight anaesthetic breathing systems, with anti microbial additive in the tubing that prevents many HAIs from being contact spread.

Silver Knight has been tested to be completely effective in preventing the following micro-organisms from proliferating:

  • Methicillan Resistant Staphylococcus aureus
  • Staphylococcus epidermis
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Klebsiella pneumoniae
  • Acinetobacter calcoaceticus

Silver Knight anaesthetic breathing systems can help to reduce the incidence of HAI cross infection and hospital costs.
