The right CO₂ absorbent can create a healthier Anaesthesia environment

CO₂ absorption creates a chemical reaction that forces moisture from the absorbent material. This happens with any absorbent. However, with many absorbent products, this reaction can exponentially increase alkalinity enough to degrade anesthetic vapors into toxic inhalants. AMSORB® Plus is different. It has a unique formulation free of strong alkali, making it incapable of degrading volatile anesthetic. It also has a violet color indicator that reacts to the dehydrating effects of CO₂ absorption. This helps you maximize the life of your absorbent and results in less waste. Overall, AMSORB® Plus is safe for your patients and safe for the environment.

  • Eco-friendly
    Breaks down into harmless organic compounds, so it’s easier on patients and staff and potentially simpler to dispose of.
  • Efficient
    Irreversible color change provides an accurate indication of hydrated state, improving confidence in clinical and purchasing decisions.
  • Cost-effective
    Low-flow Anaesthesia delivery reduces the consumption of anesthetic agents and lowers your overall cost of ownership.
