Introduction of Litholyme™, a new CO2 Absorbent Used in Anesthesia

A new CO2 absorbent for added safety in anesthesia
Allied Healthcare Products has announced introduction of Litholyme™, a new premium carbon dioxide absorbent used in anesthesia which provides enhanced patient safety over conventional absorbents.

Litholyme features a patented formulation which eliminates the safety concerns commonly associated with conventional carbon dioxide absorbents, yet it it maintains the absorption efficiency of conventional absorbents and is offered at a similar price. Other premium CO2 absorbents which exist in the market today also provide increased safety but can be much more costly than conventional absorbents, limiting their adoption in hospitals.

Litholyme’s balance of performance, safety, and cost is a combination that serves to broaden the use of this safer formulation.
