CO2 absorption creates a chemical reaction that forces moisture from the absorbent material. This happens with any absorbent.
However, with many absorbent products, this reaction can exponentially increase alkalinity enough to degrade anesthetic vapors
into toxic inhalants. AMSORB Plus is different. It has a unique formulation free of strong alkali, making it incapable of degrading
volatile anesthetic. It also has a violet color indicator that reacts to the dehydrating effects of CO2 absorption. This helps you
maximize the life of your absorbent and results in less waste. Overall, AMSORB Plus is safer for your patients and safer
for the environment.
