Please remember to add the Hydrophobic Submicron Filter to your airway circuit for patients with respiratory distress during the COVID-19 pandemic. These filters reduce risk of spread of respiratory pathogens and are tested for 99.9% bacterial and viral efficacy. Add them to your ventilation circuit in order to protect yourselves, other healthcare members and the public from COVID-19 and other aerosolized pathogens.
