Sedaconda ACD

Sedaconda ACD (Anaesthetic Conserving Device) is a medical device enabling delivery of inhaled anaesthetics to invasively ventilated patients. The Sedaconda ACD is inserted in the breathing circuit between the endotracheal tube (ET tube) and the Y-piece and contains an evaporator which enables vaporisation of inhaled anaesthetics.

This is how it works

Thanks to an effective carbon filter in the Sedaconda ACD, approximately 90% of the exhaled anaesthetic is adsorbed during expiration and reflected back to the patient during inspiration, reducing the drug consumption. The Sedaconda ACD is also a very efficient Heat and Moisture Exchanger (HME) and contains a bacterial/viral filter.
