AIRWAY RISK MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
PRESSURE-CARETM ENDOTRACHEAL TUBE CUFF
IPI MEDICAL PRODUCTS (IPI) ANNOUNCES THE INTRODUCTION OF AIRWAY RISK MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FOCUSING ON LOGICALLY DESIGNED SOLUTIONS TO LESSEN THE INCIDENCE OF VENTILATOR ASSOCIATED PNEUMONIA (VAP).
Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP) is a common and serious complication associated with the placement of artificial airways for mechanical ventilation. Placement of an endotracheal 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. Maintaining cuff pressures of 20 to 30cwp, considered the safe range, is essential in lessening tracheal damage and aspiration. Prevention of cuff over inflation during anesthesia (especially N20) lessens tissue trauma or edema.
All nosocomial infections increase morbidity, mortality and avoidable costs in the Intensive Care Unit. VAP has become a multifaceted priority of the intensive care team. The incidence of VAP increases with the duration of mechanical ventilation and with it come longer ICU and overall hospital stays, higher mortality rates and additional hospital costs of $45,000 to $100,000 or more per case. There are new user-friendly, cost effective, clinically effective solutions available now!
