Smiths Medical Portex Bacterial Viral Filters connect to a ventilator appliance for artificial respiration during anesthesia or while patient is in intensive care. This respiratory accessory effectively protects the patient by filtering the air. It's made of electrostatically-charged polypropylene which means it naturally cleans the air as particles are attracted to the static charge. This creates a filtration efficiency of 99.9 percent.

The Portex Bacterial Filter has multi-vents and features a flexible coupler to fight tight connections. The circuit end measures 22 mm with BARB connector and the patient end connection is 15 mm I.D. x 22 O.D. The Portex 002863 Ventilator Filter can be purchased individually or by the case of 40 filters. The filters are packaged non-sterile.

Smiths Medical also manufactures adapters needed for mechanically ventilated patients who require tracheostomy or endotracheal tube.
