CO2 Absorbent

 

 

Safety with Savings….

 

The World’s First Strong Alkali Free Absorbent… A Patient Safety First

 

AMSORB® PLUS is a new generation carbon dioxide absorbent, free from strong alkali metal hydroxides. It absorbs carbon dioxide (CO2) from cellular respiration during anaesthesia and unlike other absorbents it is not capable of degrading vaporous anaesthetic agent.

 

AMSORB® PLUS is specifically designed for low and minimal flow anaesthesia and is supported by an extensive bibliography of peer-reviewed journals.
