Teleflex Introduces a New Respiratory Solution for the Critical Care Infant
LIMERICK, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 7, 2013--Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), a leading global provider of medical devices for critical care and surgery, has announced that it has expanded its portfolio of Hudson RCI ® respiratory solutions for the critical care infant as part of its Breathing, Made Easier ® campaign. The addition of the Babi.Plus ® Bubble PAP Valve for nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) strengthens the Teleflex respiratory product portfolio, which already includes the Hudson RCI ® Infant Nasal CPAP Cannula System and the ConchaTherm ® Neptune ® Heated Humidifier.
The Babi.Plus Bubble PAP Valve provides a convenient, economical means to apply positive airway pressure to critical care infants. The unique design delivers accuracy and stability throughout the course of therapy, allowing the clinician to focus more on patient care and less on the device. The Babi.Plus Bubble PAP Valve is low-maintenance, and the ergonomic design allows airway pressure to be easily set without the cumbersome time-consuming tasks typically associated with bubble devices.
The Hudson RCI respiratory solutions also include the Hudson RCI Infant Nasal CPAP Cannula System, which features soft, anatomically curved prongs that enhance patient fit and a luer fitting on expiratory connector that allows proximal airway pressure monitoring.
In addition, the unique components of the ConchaTherm Neptune System work together to deliver optimal humidification for the critical care infant while simultaneously maximizing clinician efficiency. The ConchaTherm Neptune Heated Humidifier features an adjustable airway temperature and gradient control that allows clinicians to customize therapy – maximizing humidity delivered while minimizing circuit condensation. The selection of breathing circuits, Concha ® Column and accessories are designed to support a wide range of ventilation strategies for the critical care infant.
“We are excited about the addition of the Babi.Plus Bubble PAP Valve to our comprehensive portfolio of respiratory solutions for the critical care infant,” said Cary Vance, President, Anesthesia and Respiratory Division. “At Teleflex, we are committed to helping clinicians improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs through our Breathing, Made Easier initiative.” The Hudson RCI brand has been a leader in respiratory care for more than 65 years, and offers solutions for Oxygen Therapy, Aerosol Therapy, Passive Humidification and Filtration, Active Humidification and Breathing Circuits, Resuscitation Bags, Incentive Spirometers, and Adaptors and Connectors.
