Lindsay, Ontario, Canada October 2010 – This year at MEDICA, the world's most prominent medical exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany, November 17 – 20, CardioMed Supplies Inc. an ISO 13485:2003 manufacturer will unveil Punctur-Guard, a uniquely designed and engineered disposable safety product line for blood sampling and intravascular therapies.
Punctur-Guard, safety winged infusion sets and safety phlebotomy sets, protect medical professionals against a contaminated needle stick. Contaminated needle stick injuries are one of the most serious life-threatening injuries a clinician can face, affecting them physically, mentally and socioeconomically. They usually occur within a two second window following the removal of the needle from the patient. Unlike the majority of "safety" needle products available, the Punctur-Guard's safety mechanism is activated in the patient, eliminating this two second window.
CardioMed Supplies Inc. is looking forward to meeting you at MEDICA and demonstrating our Punctur-Guard product line. We are part of the Canadian Pavilion in Hall 16 / G42. CardioMed will be looking to appoint distributors for its diversified product line that covers a number of different health care specialties, so please come and partake in some of our Canadian Hospitality. CE mark, FDA, and Health Canada approvals allow CardioMed to sell our products internationally.
