Are You Putting Your Patients at Risk?

We have a Tip for You.

If the closed suction system you routinely use isn’t Halyard’s state-of-the-art Closed Suction System, you may be putting your patients at risk for contracting an array of serious infections.

Only HALYARD* Turbo-Cleaning Closed Suction System features a unique cleaning chamber proven to reduce catheter tip colonization of the most common multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs) by 89% compared to standard closed suction catheters.1

Multi-drug resistant micro-organisms (MDROs) are a huge risk and cost factor in the ICU:

  • Costs for ICU patients with an MDRO amount to over £22,6002
  • 54% -76% of the multi-drug resistant isolates are respiratory in origin3
  • For one third of patients it is unknown if they are positive for MDROs at the time of admission4
  • On average it takes 3 days before it is known if a patient is infected with an MDRO4

Isn’t it time to give your patients a better chance of avoiding an MDRO?

Depend on the innovative HALYARD* System for the protection your patients deserve and experience the full support and in-depth training that accompanies it.
