The World’s First Vascular Access Air Warming Device Achieves 87.5% Success!

The Airglove warming device works in just 3 minutes gently warming the patients arm to the selected temperature. With extended courses of treatment such as chemotherapy repeated cannulation is often required. Airglove can benefit fragile or hidden veins by gently warming up the arm.  It is so easy to use no more warm water arm immersion, heat pads or warm towels. The nurse/practitioner simply places the patients arm in the double walled polythene glove, selects the temperature and starts the device.  The patient will feel the warm air fill up and circulate around the glove and vent away through the single slit perforation. After 3 minutes Airglove will automatically stop with an alert sound. This proven patient solution provides patient comfort, easier cannulation, saves on time & wasted consumables along with potential gram-negative infections.

Airglove is CE certified with over 5 years of development in conjunction with NHS Innovations and The Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. In their patient service evaluation Airglove achieved 87.5% 1st time cannulation success in their hardest to cannulate oncology patients. This new innovation we are delighted to announce will soon be available for the US market in June 2020.
