Amsorb Plus is a CO2 absorbent that eliminates the possibility of producing toxins when it interacts with the anesthetic agents. Amsorb Plus also offers permanent color change and improved environmental safety. Other absorbents such as Medisorb or Dragersorb produce toxins such as Compound A, Formaldehyde and Carbon Monoxide. This carbon dioxide absorber is incapable of producing these toxins. Amsorb Plus also has a lower pH when exhausted that is safe for landfills and routine trash.
GE Healthcare Endorsement
Armstrong Medical Ltd and our authorized distributor Bell Medical are delighted to announce that GE Healthcare has endorsed AMSORB Plus as their Carbon Dioxide absorbent of choice when used on the complete range of Carestation 600 series, Aisys CS2, Avance CS2, Aespire, and ADU anesthesia systems.
Anesthetic agents are the biggest ongoing expense associated with anesthesia units. The Carestation 600 series is specifically suited to the practice of low-flow anesthesia delivery. AMSORB Plus has been chosen by GE Healthcare for use with the Carestation 600 series as it has been shown to reduce the consumption of sevoflurane, desflurane and isoflurane when compared to soda lime during low-flow anesthesia delivery.
