Meet the winner of our 2018 photo calendar competition

Congratulations Julie Lehman from County Hospital Stafford…read more.
Julie Lehman’s photo was one of many entrants to our calendar competition and the quality of all those received was truly outstanding. Choosing a winner was no easy task, but her image of a deer in woodland on Cannock Chase caught our eye.

We went to meet Julie in her department at the County Hospital Stafford to present her with the winning prize. This is what Julie had to say:

"I’m lucky to have Cannock Chase so close to where I live and the opportunity to see the wonderful countryside, deer and other wildlife," she said. "Photography is my hobby and my way of relaxing, I love this photo and I’m particularly proud of it."

Julie chose to split the £500 donation prize between two charities: Newlife and University Hospital North Midlands Charity. "I have supported Newlife for the last 18 years and it is very close to my heart. They employ nurses to support families, and researchers improve disabled and terminally ill children in the UK. My matron forwarded me the email regarding the competition, so it was only fair the UHNM Trust benefited from my success."

Well done, Julie, and thank you to everyone who entered.

The Complete Package

Our aim is to provide you with a flexible and comprehensive choice of patient solutions across airway management, anaesthesia, critical care and oxygen and aerosol therapy.

With over 2000 products on our pages, we understand it can sometimes be tricky to find what you need. That's why we've developed our Complete Package webpage - a bird's eye view of the products we have to offer and the clinical scenarios they can be used in. From here you can dive into our product pages based on specialism or on what you require.

We hope you find this new feature effective in reviewing our extensive range and navigating through our website.

Patient connections

Intersurgical provide a comprehensive, high quality range of cathether mounts and elbows.
Our patient connections provide a safe, secure and convenient connection between the breathing system and the patient's airway. They are available in three tube formats: Flexible, Superset™ and Smoothbore. 

Flexible catheter mounts are manufactured from Flextube™ and have a unique clip feature to provide an airtight and secure connection.

Superset™ catheter mounts have a concertina design to allow the length and position to be adjusted to allow optimal patient comfort and positioning.

Smoothbore catheter mounts provide improved flow characteristics and reduced volume.

Our range of patient connections include fixed and double swivel elbows and a variety of ports, providing an option for various clinical needs, including luer ports for secure attachment of gas sampling lines, 7.6 mm port and flip top cap for insertion of suction catheters, and a double flip top cap with seal to allow for both brochoscopy and bronchial suction via one port.

For added safety all Intersurgical port caps are fixed to the connectors, to prevent loss or misplacement in use.

For further information visit our catheter mount and elbow pages or contact us directly.

Create your oral care programme

View our choice of toothbrushes, day kits and protocols for ICU patient care.

Ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) is a major cost concern in modern hospitals. A combination of oral care treatments in a proper oral care protocol means care providers can more efficiently prevent oropharyngeal bacterial biofilm build up. This in turn leads to a reduction of VAP and aspiration pneumonias and greatly reduces associated treatment costs.

Our extensive choice of soft-bristle toothbrushes, treatment packs and OroCareTM day kits with mouthwash offers you all the tools needed to create your own oral care programme.

Full descriptions and clinical evidence are available to help make the choice easier. Please contact us to discuss options further.

Intersurgical EcoLite™ high concentration mask

The lightest and most comfortable mask available.
The Intersurgical EcoLite™ high concentration mask is made from a soft thermoplastic elastomer that enables a secure yet comfortable face seal.

The chin section of the mask has been extended and two integral seals ensure that the mask fits a wider range of face shapes.

An incurved nose seal is designed to prevent oxygen entering the patient’s eyes, eliminating the need for a separate metal nose clip making the product MRI compatible.  The unique nose seal is designed to equalise the pressure exerted on the nose as the seal conforms to differing nose shapes. These design features combine to provide an improved seal on the patient’s face, which in turn, results in higher oxygen concentrations as less ambient air enters the mask.

The mask retaining elastic can be fitted either above or below the patient’s ears depending on the patient’s face shape. In the “below ear” position it eliminates the discomfort and longer term trauma created by elastic to the top of the patient’s ears.  A choice of “under chin” or “on chin” positions provides a better fit on a wider range of patient face shapes.

Low resistance safety valves allow the patient to breathe room air should the oxygen supply fail or be inadequate to meet peak flow requirements.

The material forming the body of the mask is clear, permitting visualisation of the patient’s nose and lips. It is also rigid enough to maintain the mask’s shape during transportation and use.

One-piece™ Guedel airways: Safer by design

How many Guedel airways have an integral bite block? Just one
Loose or detached bite blocks constitute a real threat to patient safety and have been the subject of several hazard notices in the past. Our One-piece design overcomes all of the associated risks by combining two materials with very different physical characteristics into one moulding, resulting in the elimination of the separate bite block found in all conventional Guedel airway designs.

We have an online resource containing all product information on our One-piece Guedel airway, including a video and information sheet.  Make an enquiry for further information.
