THE SOLUTION: The FLUSSO BY PASS ADAPTER = Safer Circuit Disconnects
The Flusso By Pass Adapter facilitates the disconnection of the patient from the mechanical ventilator during a circuit change, HME change, or for transport. Flusso allows the patient’s PEEP to be maintained and reduces exhaled aerosols during a ventilator circuit disconnect, enhancing patient and staff safety.
The Flusso By Pass Adapter features proprietary Swing Valve Technology™, a patient port, by pass port, a ventilator port, a tethered cap and an integrated swivel to reduce torque. When the ventilator port is in use, the by pass port is sealed and when the by pass port is in use, the ventilator port is sealed. The innovative swing valve is designed to redirect the gas flow without interruption of positive pressure ventilation to the patient. The Flusso has standard ISO connections, adds minimal dead space and works with all modes of ventilation.
