Profile

Through medical device innovation, we improve patient care.

We do so by working with global health care professionals to develop new and innovative, patient centric, medical devices that benefit patients and health providers.

The Mediplus philosophy is to provide high-quality products at fair prices supported by excellence in customer service. The Company sells directly to end-users in the United Kingdom and to more than forty countries internationally through a network of carefully selected distributors.

Mediplus will be showcasing our:

  • Capnomask™ Range
  • TIVA Sets
  • Peripheral IV Connectors

Our Capnomask™ range of dedicated masks that allow the measurement of side-stream end-tidal CO2 via a unique double connector located below the nose of the patient. This prevents hypoxia which is a primary goal for every anesthetist

The Mediplus TIVA Sets are dedicated infusion delivery systems. They were designed together with clinicians to meet the highest standards. All Mediplus IV products include features necessary for safe, convenient and cost effective TIVA delivery and are considered the Gold Standard.

Mediplus has worked closely with anaesthetists to create an innovative range of products for the efficient delivery of drugs during surgical procedures. Our Peripheral IV Connectors offer high flow of fluids making them perfect in ICU, HDU and orthopaedic departments.

  • Pioneering technology showcased at ASA offers clinicians an answer to detecting hypoxia early on in patients

    Boston, US, 21–25 October 2017 - A pioneering medium concentration oxygen mask that helps detect early stages of hypoxia will be unveiled at the American Society of Anesthetists Anesthesiology (ASA) meeting.

    The Capnomask™ has been designed to measure CO2 via its unique double connector located below the nose of the patient.   This unique connector offers enhanced and more accurate readings, and an integral filter reduces the risk of cross-contamination.  The mask material is impregnated with a calming vanilla scent to help with postoperative nausea and vomiting.

    Mediplus Capnomask™ (Product Code – A202MX)

    The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) set standards for Basic Anesthetic Monitoring that should apply to all anesthesia care**.

    “During all anesthetics, the patient’s oxygenation, ventilation, circulation, and temperature shall be continually evaluated”.

    “During moderate or deep sedation the adequacy of ventilation shall be evaluated by continual observation of qualitative clinical signs and monitoring for the presence of exhaled carbon dioxide”.

    The Capnomask™ Features:

    • Soft transparent DEHP free PVC for comfort
    • Ophthalmic version available
    • Pediatric version available
    • Nose clip and elastic straps for easy adjustment
    • Unique front dual connector with both O2 line and CO2 monitor line pre-attached for speedy hookup
    • 0.22-micron filter to reduce risk of cross-contamination and infection
    • Vanilla scented to help reduce nausea and vomiting
    • Capnomask™ is not manufactured with any neutral latex material

    The Features of the Mediplus Capnomask™

    Judith Cumming, Critical Care Product Manager of Mediplus said “Patient Safety is the number one goal for procedural sedation, and ventilation monitoring is an important step in its achievement.  Studies have confirmed that CO2 monitoring improves airway management and allows for earlier detection and reaction to hypoventilation.

    The American Society of Anesthesiologists also advocates that, "the adequacy of ventilation should be evaluated by continual observation of qualitative clinical signs and monitoring for the presence of exhaled carbon dioxide," during both moderate and sleep sedation.

    With its unique ‘double connector’, the Capnomask™ offers enhanced readings and accuracy of ETCO2.  Clinicians who have used it in the US say the quality of the mask for the value is superior and that the unique vanilla scent helps patients from feeling nausea from the common plastic smell.”

    Based in the UK, Mediplus have been supplying the healthcare sector with innovative patient-centric products for 30 years. The company, who specializes in Urology and Anesthesia products, will work with a growing number of specialist distributors to launch the Capnomask™ across the US.
