Unomedical Oxygen Therapy

Oxygen therapy is used for medical interventions in various clinical areas to treat patients with hypoxia and hypoxemia.

Different disease patterns and different types of applications require different levels of oxygenation.1

The Unomedical Oxygen Delivery System represents a complete range of products to meet virtually any situation, where oxygen supply is required.

All of them come with special features designed to help healthcare professionals give their patients the best possible care.

Low 24-40%

Acute & chronic use

Designed for use when precise control of FiO2 is not mandatory.

Used with flow rates of up to 6 litres/min in adult patients.2

Oxygen supplied via nasal cannula at flow rates ≤4/min does not need to be humidified.3,4

FiO2 may fluctuate greatly depending on the breathing pattern of the patient.5

Unomedical Sof-Touch™ Nasal Oxygen Cannulas

Specially moulded extra-soft and flexible nasal oxygen cannulas

Complete Range (click for product catalogue):

Nasal Oxygen Cannulae Oxygen Catheters

Fits-All™ connector for connection to an oxygen nipple/fir-tree or directly to a flow meter screw eliminating the need for adaptors.

Transparent material enables patient observation.

Sof-Touch™ nosepiece and extra-soft lariat tubing for patient comfort. Neonate/premature, infant, children, adult sizes available.

No-Crush™ tubing helps to decrease the risk of occlusion and stall.

Free of DEHP/Phthalates, Latex and Bisphenol for increased patient and environmental safety.

Medium 35-50%

Acute use

Designed for use when precise control of FiO2 is not mandatory.

Medium FiO2 is delivered at oxygen flows of 5 to 10 L/min.

Flow rates should be maintained at 5 L/min or more to avoid rebreathing exhaled CO2.2,6,7

The FiO2 may fluctuate and is influenced by the fit of the mask and breathing pattern of the patient.8

Unomedical Medium Concentration Oxygen Masks

Soft and flexible masks with smooth finish for excellent seal and wearing comfort

Fits-All™ connector for connection to oxygen nipple/fir-tree or directly to flow meter screw eliminate the need for adaptors.

Adjustable nose clip supports comfortable fit.

Transparent material enables patient observation.

Elongated under-the-chin design improves patient acceptance and compliance.

Free of DEHP/Phthalates, Latex and Bisphenol for increased patient and environmental safety.

Fixed 24-60%

Acute use

Designed for use when precise control of FiO2 is mandatory.

Fixed flow / Fixed concentration systems deliver a prescribed gas mixture.

Venturi Mask Kits deliver the assigned FiO2 irrespective of the patient’s breathing pattern but depending on the fit of the mask.

Unomedical Venturi Masks with single diluters

Soft and flexible masks with a set of diluters to cover all concentrations

Complete Range

(click for product catalogue):

Venturi Mask Kits (single or adjustable diluters)

Adjustable nose clip supports comfortable fit.

Transparent material enables patient observation.

Elongated under-the-chin design improves patient acceptance and compliance.

Aerosol hood allows for simultaneous supply of aerosolized medication/humidification.

No-Crush™ tubing helps to decrease the risk of occlusion and stall.

Clearly stated FiO2 and oxygen flow rates on each diluter for fast and easy identification.

Fits-All™ connector for connection to oxygen nipple/fir-tree or directly to flow meter screw eliminate the need for adaptors.

Free of DEHP/Phthalates, Latex and Bisphenol for increased patient and environmental safety.

High 40-80%

Acute use

Designed for use when an adequate amount of O2 is required to meet unpredictable breathing patterns.

At a flow rate of 6-10 L/min the rebreathing system can provide 40-70% oxygen and at a min. flow rate of 10 L/min the non-rebreathing system 60-80% oxygen.9

Oxygen flow should always be supplied to maintain the reservoir bag at least one third to one-half full-on inspiration.9

The FiO2 may fluctuate and is influenced by the fit of the mask and breathing pattern of the patient.10

Unomedical High Concentration Oxygen Masks

Soft and flexible masks with smooth finish for excellent seal and wearing comfort

Complete Range

(click for product catalogue information):

High Concentration Oxygen Masks (rebreathing & non-rebreathing masks)

Adjustable nose clip supports comfortable fit.

Transparent material enables patient observation.

Swiveling connection between mask and tube/bag reduces the risk of dislocation by torque.

Elongated under-the-chin design improves patient acceptance and compliance.

No-Crush™ tubing helps to decrease the risk of occlusion and stall.

Fits-All™ connector for connection to oxygen nipple/fir-tree or directly to flow meter screw eliminate the need for adaptors.

Free of DEHP/Phthalates, Latex and Bisphenol for increased patient and environmental safety.

Unomedical Aerosol Therapy

A comprehensive range of nebulization solutions for tracheobronchial and alveolar deposition to meet the treatment requirements of patients with various respiratory conditions. All products come with special features designed to help healthcare professionals give their patients the best possible care.

Environmentally Friendly Materials

Phthalate/DEHP- and PVC-free respiratory care solutions

We are dedicated to providing medical products and packaging solutions that follow the highest environmental standards to ensure patient and environmental safety. We work progressively to further reduce and replace substances of concern.

Today, Unomedical respiratory products already are free of DEHP/Phthalates, Latex, and Bisphenol. In addition, our FreeLineTM respiratory care range is also completely PVC-free.






Unomedical respiratory care products are free of Phthalates/DEHP

DEHP (Di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate) has been the most commonly used phthalate plasticizer (a phthalate used to soften PVC-based plastics) in the medical device industry.11

Prolonged exposure to the DEHP has been associated with reproductive system outcomes in animal tests, such as with concerns over impact on male fertility.11-21

Based on these concerns, we have replaced DEHP with non-toxic plasticizers (DEHT) in all our Respiratory Care solutions.

 

 

FreeLineTM mask solutions for oxygen and aerosol therapy

To reduce the environmental affects related to the manufacturing and recycling of products containing polyvinyl chloride (PVC), the use of alternative, PVC-free products has been recommended by a number of health and governmental organizations in many industries. During its production and disposal PVC has shown to cause more pollution and toxins than other plastics.22

Based on these concerns, we are starting to offer PVC-free alternatives for commonly used products, such as oxygen and aerosol masks.
