Airglove Air Warming System for Venous Access. . . An Award Winning Innovation – now available in stock

“Please see below comments from our Lead Consultant regarding purchasing the Airglove. It is proving to be very helpful we are gaining venous access quicker which helps with our timed injections. This means that our day is flowing more smoothly and its helping us to keep to appointment times. Therefore less extra waiting time for our patients. It is also allowing us to mostly cannulise rather than use butterflies. It takes longer to administer the radioactive isotope through butterflies. This means the dose of radiation the technical staff receive while doing this task is lower. This is always our aim to reduce our personal dose.” Mary Milligan Imaging Services Manager, West of Scotland PET Centre, Gartnavel Hospital, Glasgow

“Hi Mary – I think the air glove trial is proving successful. Please can you ask for a quote so that we can raise a PO for it”. Sandy Small, Lead Consultant, Consultant Clinical Physicist, Nuclear Science, Gartnavel Hospital, Glasgow

“The Airglove has proven to be a valuable addition to enable us to cannulate patients who have challenging venous access. The patients tolerate it well and it avoids the risks of previous attempts to improve visibility of veins through the use of warm water. It is convenient and easy to use ” Gerry O’Hare, Oncology Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS), Vale of Leven District General Hospital

“We have had very good feedback from the Airglove. Can you give me the price again?  I think you said there would be discount seeing as Solihull DU had brought their’s?  We would want to buy one and share with the DU on ward 19.” Mary Dillon, Acting Ward Manager Ward 19, Heartlands Hospital, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust

“We have managed to trial the Airglove system for a week with our night nurse practitioners who have given a very favourable report for the unit and see it as something they would find beneficial to have available for use, please see below team lead comments” Sue Harper, Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust
. . .  “Thank you for allowing my team to trial the Airglove system for a week. The feedback from the team members that used it were very positive and in the absence to help us insert difficult cannulas we found it very useful”.

A new design for cannula dressing

Secure – 2 Part IV cannula dressing is a new worldwide patented design of cannula dressing that comes in 2 parts. This provides more stability by reducing movement in all directions with venous complications avoided and the possibility of infections.

Clinical Considerations
Currently 80% of patients admitted to hospital have a cannula inserted and in some cases this often involves two vascular devices per patient. Repeated cannulation is also another consideration as this can often be required especially with extended courses of treatment such as chemotherapy. Therefore it is important that a stable and secure cannula dressing surrounds the entire insertion site providing a sterile barrier to external viruses and bacteria while giving peace of mind and comfort.

Proven Results and Preferred by the Clinicians
After approval of the proposal by Clinical Governance Committee of The Spencer Private Hospital, East Kent Medical Services the dressing was used on patients by the Consultant Anaesthetists. In the study the responses were recorded rating various aspects of the use of access, user friendliness and quality of the product. Each consultant used the new Secure 2 PART IV cannula on their patents with the overall impression that this dressing secured the cannula well and did not allow any /dislodgement and therefore did not result in any restarts, infiltration or other problems.

Study Conclusion
The majority of Consultant Anaesthetists 92% held a positive view in overall performance using the new Secure 2 PART IV cannula dressing with their patients. The ward nurses too thought it provided better securement of the cannula resulting in reduction in the problems they usually face with IV lines.
