Drägersorb® 800+ – Soda Lime
Dräger is the only manufacturer of anaesthesia machines that also develops and produces its own soda lime. That’s why in Dräger systems, the soda lime is optimised to meet the latest requirements of anaesthesia equipment.
- Increased efficiency thanks to uniform utilisation
- Low dust generation protects the patient, user and the equipment
- Fewer undesired reaction effects, even if the soda lime is unintentionally allowed to dry out
- Improved handling thanks to user-friendly packaging
Thanks to its unique pellet form, Drägersorb 800+ does not undergo channel formation. Our soda lime absorbs CO2 evenly and is effectively utilized. Its pellet form and high porosity create an optimal surface. Drägersorb 800+ is therefore able to absorb more CO2 and lasts longer than conventional soda lime.
The shape and composition of the Drägersorb 800+ pellets enhance its strength and resistance to abrasion. This helps protect the lungs of both the patient and anaesthesia staff. Dust emissions are harmful to high-tech anaesthesia machines which is another reason why Drägersorb 800+ was developed – to protect your valuable investments and reduce ongoing costs.
Drägersorb 800+ significantly reduces the build up of decomposition substances that are produced if the soda lime accidentally dries out.1 Drägersorb 800+ may be used with all halogenated inhalation anaesthetic agents. Of course, only fresh soda lime guarantees optimal use for patients. A change in color from white to violet blue clearly indicates when the soda lime needs to be changed.
