Additional Information

High Efficiency Hydrophobic Membrane Establishes a Barrier Against Microbial Pathogens:

The Pall Ultipor 100 provides a barrier against cross contamination between patients in anesthesia.1,2,3 The Ultipor 100 has been validated to remove Mycobacterium tuberculosis,4,5 Staphylococcus aureus,6 Hepatitis C virus,2 HIV7, and Influenza A virus8. When evaluated among a group of 104 breathing filters using the particle retention test specified in ISO 23328- 1:2003,9 it demonstrated outstanding filtration efficiency. All Pall Breathing System Filters contain a proprietary fine hydrophobic filter medium that is tested during manufacturing to demonstrate a water intrusion pressure (hydrophobicity) in excess of 50 cm water column.

Optimal Humidification

The Pall Ultipor 100 efficiently heats and humidifies ventilation gases for respiratory therapy patients.10,11 It preserves the rheological and physical properties of patient airway mucus, and contributes to the maintenance of physiological mucus clearance.12

Latex

The Pall Ultipor 100 is free of natural rubber latex. Pall Breathing System Filters have been tested to verify the retention of natural latex rubber allergens in liquids and airborne particles.13,14

Product Life with Drug Nebulization

The Ultipor 100 may be left in place during nebulization of drug solutions administered between the filter and the patient. If nebulization is performed with the filter in place, the filter has a maximum use life of 24 hours. When a metered dose inhaler is used, or when no drugs are nebulized with the filter in place, the maximum use life of the Ultipor 100 is 48 hours.
