AquaVENT® VT Breathing Circuits
Flowkit breathing circuits with AquaVENT® VT technology provide humidity for the patient and a dry expiratory limb for staff.
Optimal Humidity, Minimal Condensate
Optimal humidity is necessary in the management of invasively ventilated patients. With active humidification systems, water in the expiratory limb is a common problem.
Vapour Transition (VT) - how does it work?
Key Benefits of AquaVENT® VT
1. Optimal Humidification
The patented AquaVENT® Heated Wire designs minimises loss of water vapour in the inspiratory limb, delivering optimal humidification to the patient.
2. Dry Expiratory Limb
The unique layered properties of the expiratory limb achieves a high Moisture Vapour Transition Rate (MVTR), providing a dry expiratory limb.
3. BioCote® Antimicrobial Protection
BioCote® antimicrobial silver additive limits the number of microbes on the surface of the breathing circuit, protecting it from microbial colonisation.
Protected by BioCote® Antimicrobial Silver Technology
AquaVENT® Heated Breathing Systems are supplied with BioCote®, an antimicrobial silver additive to limit the numbers of microbes on the surface of the breathing circuit, protecting it from microbial colonisation.
Biocote® antimicrobial protection is effective against a board spectrum of micro – organisms:
- Clostridium difficile • Legionella pneumophila
- MRSA • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Salmonella entertidis • Salmonella typhimurium
- Staph aureus • Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus
- Aspergillus niger • Aspergillus brasiliensis
- Candida albicans • Penicillium sp.
- Influenza A H1N1
