Closed Suction Systems

From the leader in closed suctioning, our Closed Suction Systems with BALLARD* Technology offers advanced infection control features that have redefined the standard of closed suctioning care for over 25 years.

These unique infection prevention features have been proven to reduce cross-contamination, reducing ICU days and associated costs.1

Helping You Protect Your Patients from VAE.


Turbo-Cleaning – How it Works

BALLARD* Turbo-Cleaning Closed Suction System, which features technology from BALLARD* trach care, is the only catheter that retracts within a unique, isolated and vacuum-sealed turbulent cleaning chamber. The turbulent cleansing action results in an 89% cleaner catheter tip compared to a standard closed suction system.1 This reduced colonisation may help reduce risk of VAE and VAP in your ventilated patients.


Multiple access. Multiple procedures. One closed circuit.

The BALLARD* Multi-Access Port Closed Suction System features a compact rotating manifold that provides multiple ports to access the patient’s airway, without jeopardising integrity of the closed circuit. A closed circuit helps you protect your patient from cross-contamination, VAE and VAP.
