BALLARD* Turbo-Cleaning
Closed Suction Systems

Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is the most common and deadly  healthcare-associated infection, affecting up to 28% of ventilated patients. To help protect patients, a closed ventilator circuit is recognized as a best practice.

BALLARD* Turbo-Cleaning Closed Suction System retracts with a unique and isolated turbulent cleaning chamber, making it the only catheter proven to reduce bacterial load on the catheter tip by 89% in a 72-hour period.

The BALLARD* Turbo-Cleaning Closed Suction System Reduces:

  • The risk of contamination from outside pathogens
  • Colonization within the circuit
  • ICU days and associated costs
  • Potential exposure to bodily fluids

Features include:

  • Patented “PEEP seal” technology helps reduce PEEP loss and helps prevent inadvertent lavage
  • One-way lavage port prevents splash-back, which reduces the risk of cross-contamination
  • Dynamic valve technology allows for normal ventilation during catheter cleaning
