Multiple-Patient-Use Anesthesia Circuits

Protect patients, staff, and equipment while increasing efficiency and reducing costs

Features

  • Pall anesthesia circuits may be used on an unlimited number of patients within a 24-hour period, as long as every new patient receives a fresh Pall patient kit (consisting of a mask, elbow, and Ultipor® 25 filter)1
  • A variety of coaxial (single-limb) and dual-limb circuits available  
  • Four mask sizes: one pediatric and three adult (small, medium and large)
  • All components are latex-free 

Benefits

  • Reduces the number of circuits used on a daily basis
  • Decreases overall circuit costs
  • Saves time by turning the operating room over more quickly in between procedures
  • Generates less medical waste (approximately 2000 lbs less per year than single-use circuits), decreasing disposal costs2
  • Protects patients and staff from machine contamination
  • Protects machines from patient contamination

Why hospitals are converting to Pall Multiple-Patient-Use Circuits

A single Pall anesthesia circuit can be used for all procedures performed within a 24-hour period, as long as each new patient is provided with a fresh Pall patient kit. Pall patient kits contain a mask, an Ultipor® 25 heat and moisture exchange filter, and a filter elbow. Four different mask sizes are available.

Pall Multiple-Patient-Use Anesthesia Circuits

The advantages of using the same circuit for multiple patients are clear:
  • Fewer circuits are used, saving money
  • Less medical waste is generated, decreasing disposal costs
  • Operating room turnover time is decreased, saving staff effort
  • Patients and staff are protected from machine contamination
  • Machines are protected from patient contamination
The key to the ability to reuse circuits is the Pall Ultipor 25 Heat and Moisture Exchange Filter. Rigorous monodispersed testing of the hydrophobic Ultipor 25 filter vs. B. diminuta and MS-2 bateriophage has demonstrated 4-5 log retention efficiency3,4. In addition, Vezina et al5. demonstrated superior retention of M. chelonae by the Ultipor 25 when compared to other brands of breathing filters. Ultipor 25 filtration efficacy is complemented by its unequalled patient heat and moisture retention capability. Both Pall dual-limb and coaxiel (single-limb) circuit configurations may be used for multiple patients with Pall patient kits
