The Surgical Company – Patient Temperature Management
The Surgical Company has a complete Blood and Fluid Warming portfolio that offers a safe and controlled techno logy to consistently deliver warm blood and IV fluids to patients undergoing surgical procedures from low to high flow.
Blood and Fluid Warming can help maintaining nor-mothermia and will contribute to a positive patient outcome by providing consistent normothermic blood and fluid at all flow rates. Maintaining the right patient body temperature results in clinical and economic ben-efits by reducing the length of hospital stay and compli-cations.
Preventing inadvertent perioperative hypothermia helps to reduce surgical site infections, the length of hospital stays and the costs per patient. The Mistral-Air® Plus Warming Unit is a Forced Air Warming device which enables safe, comfortable and a smart management of patient temperature to achieve normothermia.

Oesophageal Doppler Monitoring (ODM+)
Oesophageal Doppler Monitoring (ODM+) is unique in its ability to guide fluid and drug interventions with accuracy and in real time. The principle is to keep surgical patients in their best haemodynamic state. This means ODM+ helps clinicians to optimise outcomes, with fewer complications.
The adverse effects of poor haemodynamic management during surgery aren’t always immediately obvious. In other words, they often only become apparent later in the care continuum. However complications can be nonetheless serious, study after study reporting a high incidence of conditions such as Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and Surgical Site Infection (SSI). The result can often be a demand for prolonged care. Importantly, resources may even end up being used to treat conditions that the patient unfortunately, and avoidably acquired in hospital.
The good news is that careful haemodynamic management avoids complications and helps clinicians to deliver better outcomes.

SMARTeZ® Elastomeric Infusion Pumps
The SMARTeZ® Pump allows medication to be delivered to the patient by positive pressure applied by the elastomeric membrane. The flow rate is determined by the combination of the flow regulation device (flow restrictor) and positive pressure. This pressure delivers the solution against the back-pressure of catheters and blood pressure in the veins. Back-pressure affects the flow rate.
The Right Choice with SMARTeZ® Pumps
Not all pumps are created Equal. SMARTeZ® offers unique differences that supports safe and effective infusion for patients. Caregivers find the pump very easy to use. Of course, DEHP and Latex Free is a standard specification.
- Extensive Drug Compatibility Studies
Extensive drug studies are conducted with SMARTeZ® Pumps. These are documented in American Society of Healthcare Professionals (ASHP) Manual of Extended Parenteral 6th Ed. 2017. The use of silicone material as the drug reservoir facilitates compatibility with a broader range of drugs.
- USFDA Extractables And Leachables Clearance
The SMARTeZ® Pump obtained USFDA clearance in 2015 (K151650). All pumps cleared after 2014 are required to comply to Extractables and Leachables Testing in accordance to FDA Guidance “Infusion Pumps Total Product Life Cycle“ dated Dec 2014. Chemical characterization performed in Extractables and Leachables tests ensures that the SMARTeZ® is safe from health risks associated with exposure to chemical elements released from the materials used.
- Accurate Flow Rate
SMARTeZ® Pumps are calibrated to ensure that the pressure generated in a filled pump delivers the intended flow rate.
- Phthalate Free
None of the system components are made using natural rubber latex. Furthermore, our proprietary manufacturing process ensures zero contact between natural rubber latex and all of the system components during production.
- Two Silicone Membranes
The SMARTeZ® Pump has 2 layers of silicone membranes. This improves flow accuracy and reduces residual volume when infusion is complete.
- Mobile App Support
Several Mobile Apps are available to improve patient user outcomes in alternate sites and at home – VSCAN and Chemo CS App.
- eZVSCAN enables an assessment of the volume of medication remaining in the pump and also reminds users of imminent end of infusion. Pharmacists benefit from the easily accessible information on pump filling specifications.
- SMARTeZ®Chemo CS App (Chemo Closed System Pump) helps eliminate human errors and improves patient safety with its on-board drug library.
