Through a full line of surgical consumables and equipment, encompassing theater, intensive care, orthopedics, cardiac, E.D., outpatients and physiotherapy, Nexus Medical Limited has become one of East Africa’s leading suppliers of quality, high-end surgical products.
Dräger accessories for neonatal ventilation and thermotherapy ventilate gently and effectively, reduce stress and help promote the development of the newborn with a wide range of accessories designed specifically for use with the smallest of patients.
Simple, flexible and easy to use: BabyFlow™ nasal CPAP interfaces
Designed specificly for use with Babylog 8000, Evita and Babylog 2000 (only disposable BabyFlow™) ventilators, these extremely low-noise interfaces feature minimal dead space and enable the seamless transition from invasive ventilation to nasal CPAP and vice versa. The BabyFlow™ delivers flow-independent nasal CPAP all in one device: the need for a separate CPAP device is eliminated, reducing costs and complexity at bedside. Using the BabyFlow™ is simple and requires a minimum of training.
BABYFLOW™ ACCESSORIES: MASKS, PRONGS, HEADBANDS AND CAPS
Silicone nasal prongs are available in five different sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL), and NeoMasks come in two sizes (S,M). This ensures a comfortable, effective fit. A total of seven colour-coded reusable headbands with Velcro attachments provide enhanced sizing control and superior comfort. An included measuring tape facilitates sizing, avoiding waste and saving valuable time. A complete line of colour-coded caps is available, and new intermediate sizes ensure the best possible fit and provide easy access for ultrasound or i.v. cannulation procedures. Reusable headbands are made of microfibre and elastane. This makes them breathable, washable and resistant to the warmth and humidity of the incubator environment. Minimal seams ensure increased comfort. The caps are disposable and made of cotton and elastane.
Infinity NeoMed cable – consolidated monitoring of vital functions and parameters
The Infinity NeoMed cable consolidates up to 7 leads into one compact package, effectively reducing the level of complexity and stress at bedside. It provides connections for 3 ECG leads, SpO2, 2 temperature probes (1 for Gamma/GammaXL) and FiO2 (not available for Gamma/GammaXL). The 3 lead ECG cable is automatically detected, saving valuable time. Respiration is detected using the impedance method.
GENTLE AND PRECISE SPO2 SENSORS
Dräger neonatal transdermal pulse oxymetry sensors were designed for secure yet skin-friendly positioning. Both disposable and reusable sensors are available.
DISPOSABLE BLOOD PRESSURE CUFFS – SOFT AND ACCURATE
Dräger disposable blood pressure cuffs come in a wide range of sizes – ready for all levels of maturity. Made from special soft materials, these cuffs provide gentle and accurate blood pressure measurement, even for the smallest, most fragile patients.
TEMPERATURE CABLES AND PROBES
Dräger offers a selection of solutions for temperature measurement designed especially for neonatal applications.
Microstream® capnography – non-invasive, continuous CO2 monitoring
Requiring a flow rate of only 50 cc, the Microstream® capnography system places very little load on the infant’s tidal volume. The Microstream® neonatal airway adapter adds only 0.5 cc of dead space to the circuit and can be used with or without endotracheal intubation. This continuous, accurate CO2 measurement is reliable indication of correct intubation and adequate ventilation – the need for arterial blood gas analysis is significantly reduced. It also provides additional security and peace of mind during and after the weaning process.
Compatible, high-accuracy oxygen and flow sensors for your medical devices.
RELIABLE OXYGEN MEASUREMENT
Dräger O2 sensors are designed for highly accurate, continuous oxygen concentration monitoring in compliance with strict national and international standards.
FAST AND ACCURATE FLOW MEASUREMENT
Dräger Spirolog®, Babylog and SpiroLife® flow sensors use highly responsive hot wire anemometer technology for rapid, accurate flow measurement with minimal inspiratory and expiratory flow resistance.
All sensors are fully compatible with a wide range of Dräger systems and devices.
In today’s time-critical clinical environment you need fast and efficient solutions that are easy to use. The range of the Dräger suction products meets all these needs.
Bronchial aspirators are used to extract secretion from the airways, in particular in the case of patients who are ventilated.
A modular design facilitates the easy replacement of components and allows the system to be upgraded with any of Dräger´s product portfolio.
Continuous drainages are used for drainage of secretion, blood and/or air from body cavities over long periods, following operations, particularly after open-thorax surgery.
All of Dräger’s continuous drainages are made from high-quality materials and are designed with space in mind. Individual solutions allows you to choose between pneumatic or electrical driven drainages, while also assisting you in optimising your specific needs and requirements.
During surgical, endoscopical and minimally invasive procedures you do not have to abandon the easy use of these products. A modular design facilitates the easy replacement of components and allows the system to be upgraded with any of Dräger´s product portfolio.

The portfolio includes the NovaStar® and ClassicStar® NIV full-face masks with SE used with Dräger ventilators. The NovaStar® NIV full-face mask with AAV completes the portfolio.
BREATHING SYSTEM FILTERS/HMES
The utilisation of heat and moisture exchangers (HMEs) and breathing system filters in the OR, the ICU as well as other settings is an approach to address concerns commonly associated with mechanical ventilation: The one is proper humidification of inspired air; the other is cross-infection.
- For different tidal volumes and/or different deadspace needs all products are available in different sizes
- Equipped with a Luer Lock connector for gas sampling
- Sampling port in convenient 45° angle
- With a tethered luer cap in order to prevent any loose parts from falling into the breathing system
- Transparent housing of the products allows for visual inspection at any time while in use
- Fast and easily identified due their colour coding and clear labeling
- Standardised connectors provide proper and easy connection with other components of the ventilation circuit
DEVICE RELATED ACCESSORIES
Make your life easier – Evita disposable expiratory valve
It assures the functionality of intensive care ventilation and helps keep bacterial infection to a minimum. The disposable expiratory valve helps to maintain hygienic standards since it is changed and disposed of with every patient. This is another example of how accessories may support clinical and financial benefits across all applications and how Dräger is working to “make your life easier.”
Disposable expiratory valve for use with the Evita ventilator family (Evita 2 dura, Evita 4, Evita XL). For adult ventilation only.
Comfortable and easy to use – Dräger disposable anaesthesia masks
Patient comfort and ease of use were the top priorities when developing the Dräger LiteStar® and ComfortStar® anaesthesia face masks. Patient comfort is supported by teardrop or round-shaped masks which provides an anatomical fit with effective seal.
Researches show that added aromas can help in minimising the potential side effect, PONV of general anaesthesia (Post Operative Nausea and Vomitting). ComfortStar® scented anaesthesia face masks have the same excellent benefits of the ComfortStar® standard masks, but in addition have added aromas.
The anaesthesia mask portfolio consist of the LiteStar® masks in sizes 1-6 for paediatric and adult applications and the ComfortStar standard and scented masks. The standard version is available in sizes 0-6 for neonate, paediatric and adult applications. The scented versions are available with strawberry or bubble gum scents in sizes 1-4, and mint scent in sizes 3-6. The appropriate colour scheme provides optical stimulation and is intended to reduce pre-operative anxiety in patients.
OXYGEN AND AEROSOL THERAPY
A comprehensive range of O2 accessories providing quality and comfort for patients and caregivers alike. Oxygen can be delivered to the patient through tubing attached to a nasal cannula(prong), face mask, a face tent or a tracheo-stomy mask.
Dräger provides a comprehensive range of oxygen delivery products for different applications, each particularly suited to treat a range of disorders resulting in hypoxia.
Safe and simple – Dräger disposable breathing circuits
Dräger disposable breathing circuits offer correct fit and reliable function and are designed for use with existing systems. The PVC-free materials used ensure that no hazardous softening agents can enter the circuit. Latex-free breathing bags are also available. Single-use design effectively eliminates the risk of cross contamination, reducing the overall incidence of nosocomial infections. Disposability saves prep time and reduces workloads, allowing caregivers more time with their patients.
RELIABLE PATIENT DATA WITH LESS STRESS
The Dräger line of monitoring accessories includes consolidated ECG, oxymetry, blood pressure and temperature measurement that lead to a complete accessories offering for critical care monitoring accessories, as well as comfortable blood pressure cuffs. Special applications like accessories for the measurement of cardiac output, end-tidal CO2 and PiCCO® are also covered by the product portfolio.
Accessories that actively cooperate Each and every Infinity ID-accessory has been designed to offer additional functionality, which – that has been demonstrated by the daily clinical routine at Zurich’s University Hospital – can help you simplify routine tasks, streamline workflow and increase safety levels.
TRANSFER OF VENTILATION SETTINGS (TVS)
Transport your patient while the circuit transports the ventilation settings – from one device to the next.
- The Primus IE stores ventilation settings and alarm limits continuously on an RFID chip inside the Infinity ID breathing circuit – from the first second on.
- Once you’re there, connect the Infinity ID breathing circuit directly with the Primus IE. The parameters stored on the chip are automatically displayed; all you have to do is confirm and ventilation continues using the same settings.
Just connect the breathing circuit. The system will help you recognise possible connection errors.
- The Primus IE recognises the connector of an Infinity ID breathing bag or Infinity ID breathing circuit.
- If a circuit is incorrectly connected, an alarm will sound, enabling you to immediately correct the error.
As quick as a click: The anaesthesia workstation lets you know if the CLIC Absorber is not firmly connected.
- Is the Infinity ID absorber just parked in its holder on the Primus IE?
- The Primus IE recognises this problem right away. The system informs you that the absorber is in park position as soon as ventilation begins, which lets you make a firm connection quickly.
CALCULATION OF REMAINING CO2-ABSORBING CAPACITY
With the help of the absorber, the system automatically calculates the remaining capacity of the soda lime.
- As soon as ventilation begins, the Primus IE simultaneously begins to calculate the remaining CO2 absorption capacity.
- You can see the results on the self-test page of the Primus IE user interface.
- If 80% of the soda lime has been used, the system will inform you, giving you time to prepare to replace it.
You’ll never have to worry about missing an exchange date again – our devices will remind you.
- The Infinity ID water trap from Dräger stores the date of first use on an RFID chip.
- Now you can exchange the water trap on schedule, avoiding damage to devices caused by using old water traps.
You can count on it: The system automatically checks to make sure if the accessories are approved for use together.
- For example, is the Infinity ID breathing circuit certified for use with the Primus IE?
- If not, the Primus IE will inform you of this incompatibility as soon as the connection is made, easily avoiding potential hazards for patients and devices.
Get ready to be more efficient: The system automatically sets all parameters to correspond to those of the Infinity ID breathing circuit.
- The accessory-specific data – for example, for active humidification – is stored in the Infinity ID breathing circuit.
- When you connect the circuit to an Evita Infinity V500 ventilator, all settings are transferred automatically – no need for separate input of the ventilation settings.
