The Virus and Bacteria Filter for Ventilators
The growing number of multidrug-resistant germs is becoming an increasingly difficult challenge for emergency and health care services. Epidemic diseases and the spreading of viruses and bacteria around the world increase the need for hygiene, and this includes ventilation for patients.
MEDUMAT Transport and MEDUMAT Standard² are fitted with a bacteria filter on the device inlet to protect users, patients, and the device itself when using ventilators.
Greater Protection for Everyone
The hygiene filter provides greater protection against viruses and bacteria. This filter is different from traditional device inlet filters, which only filter dust particles from the air. The aspirated ambient air is filtered at the device inlet to prevent bacteria and viruses from penetrating through the filter. The filtration rate is > 99%.
The function check allows you to find out the filter’s useful life at any time. Color coding indicates the remaining service life of the filter. If required, you will be reminded when you need to change the virus and bacteria filter. The filter should generally be changed as part of the function check if indicated (every six months or after 24 hours of ventilation using the Air Mix function), or after transporting and providing ventilation for a patient with an infection.
