IPI MEDICAL PRODUCTS (IPI) FOCUSES ON LOGICALLY ENGINEERED SOLUTIONS TO LESSEN THE
INCIDENCE OF VENTILATOR ASSOCIATED EVENTS (VAE)
Ventilator Associated Events (VAE) is a common and serious complication associated with the placement of artificial airways for mechanical ventilation. Placement of an ecdotracheal tube (ETT) is a potentially lifesaving procedure and allows for delivery of gas from a mechanical ventilator. Unfortunately, it also provides a direct pathway for aspiration of colonized oral, nasal, and gastric secretions via leakage around the ETT cuff; the more the ETT and its cuff move around, the more aspiration occurs. All nosocomial infections increase morbidity, mortality and avoidable costs in the Intensive Care Unit. And VAE has become a multifaceted priority of the intensive care team. Some research supports the use of ETTs that allow subglottic suctioning, but these devices can have adverse effects.
As the incidence of VAE increases with the duration of mechanical ventilation, with it come longer ICU and overall hospital stays. These longer lengths of stay translate into higher mortality rates and additional hospital costs of $45,000 to $100,00 or more per case. The good news is there are new user-friendly, cost effective, clinically effective solutions available now!
