AVANOS KIMVENT BALLARD TURBO CLEANING CLOSED SUCTION SYSTEM ADULT-DOUBLE SWIVEL ELBOWS
- Avanos Kimvent Ballard Turbo Cleaning Closed Suction System is a revolutionary medical device that provides respiratory care.
- Ballard Turbo Cleaning Closed Suction System features an exclusive, independent cleaning chamber that allows the device to be retracted and cleaned
- The catheter has been proven to reduce the risks of contamination by outside pathogens and the possibility of colonization within its circuit while simultaneously being safe for adults (2-4).
- This catheter is only for adults. This system was developed only for adults (2-5).
- The Trach Care 72 Closed Suction System has been designed and labelled to provide 72 hours of closed suction usage without interruption and protect caregivers from exposure to body fluids.
Advantages of Ballard Turbo-Cleaning Closed Suction System:
- Reduces the risk of contamination from outside pathogens
- Reduces colonization within the circuit
- Designed to protect caregivers from exposure to body fluids
- Sealed by our patented “PEEP seal” technology, the suction and saline produce turbulent cleansing action for a cleaner catheter tip
- One-way lavage port, designed to prevent “playback.”
- The turbulent cleaning chamber creates a cleansing action, resulting in a cleaner catheter
- The hinged valve isolates the catheter tip and helps prevent inadvertent lavage
- Integrated MDI port (optional)
Features of the Ballard Turbo Cleaning Closed Suction System
- Patented “PEEP seal” technology helps reduce PEEP loss and helps prevent inadvertent lavage
- One-way lavage port prevents splash-back, which reduces the risk of cross-contamination
- Dynamic valve technology allows for normal ventilation during catheter cleaning
The BALLARD Turbo Cleaning Closed Suction System Reduces:
- The risk of contamination from outside pathogens
- Colonization within the circuit
- ICU days and associated costs
- Potential exposure to bodily fluids
What is a closed suction system?
- Closed suctioning permits a suction tube to be placed into the endotracheal tube via a single valve, with no requirement to separate patients from the ventilator.
- While suctioning is vital, it poses a risk to patients and caregivers.
Why is the closed suction system used?
- The closed system keeps the Positive End Expiratory Pressure (PEEP) constant during the aspiration maneuver, reducing arterial desaturation and cerebral deoxygenation and speeding up the stabilisation of vital parameters.
How do you do closed suctioning?
- Apply the suction and withdraw in one smooth action over about ten seconds.
- Make sure you entirely withdraw the catheter.
What are the disadvantages of a closed suction system?
- Drawbacks associated with a CTSS include increased damaging airway pressure buildup in specific ventilation modes and increased costs incurred with its implementation and use.
How does a closed suction drain work?
- Surgical drains are catheters placed near the surgical wound to remove blood, pus, or other fluid and prevent it from accumulating in the body.
- They are active drains that maintain an adverse pressure gradient.
- The collection reservoir of an active drain collects fluid by exchanging negative pressure, and the drain may become ineffective if the vacuum is lost.
- The activity describes suction drains and highlights the role of the multidisciplinary team in drain care.
