Evaqua is the world’s first breathing circuit technology that minimizes mobile condensate in the expiratory limb by allowing water vapor to diffuse through the tubing wall.
Advanced ventilator breathing circuits that reduce condensate in an easy-to-use system, helping promote a closed system and reducing the level of intervention required.
Less condensate due to insulating MicroCells
Protection from cool drafts
MicroCells form an insulation shield between the cool air outside and the water vapor inside.
Less condensate with permeable Evaqua technology
Protection through a robust MicroCell wall structure
Allows humidity to diffuse out of the breathing circuit freely.
Breaking open a breathing circuit (to drain condensate, change circuits etc.) introduces the potentially hazardous effect of a drop in PEEP. Zero PEEP has been associated with the leak of infectious secretions past ET tube cuffs, due to circuit pressure changes, regardless of cuff material or inflation pressure.
Watch our Middlemore Hospital experiment with bronchoscope to demonstrate the effects of pressure change upon circuit break and associated secretion dribble
