Integrated workflow solution links data and decision-making to support quality care

The Canexis Integrated Workflow Solution from CANTEL links data and decision- making to support the efficient operation of critical hospital departments. The endoscopy solution allows Trusts to monitor every step of the patient’s experience to support quality patient care.

The traceability, ownership and accountability that the software delivers

helps to support patient safety and infection prevention. The solution was developed in close collaboration with endoscopy experts to create a high-quality, user-friendly tool that ensures best practice. It is also flexible and configurable to support workflow needs. It allows healthcare providers to deter- mine the real-time status and location of the entire endoscope inventory at a glance with a monitoring dashboard. It also provides valuable information on which endoscopes are ready for use, which endoscopes need to be reprocessed, as well as tracking which endoscopes are out for repair. Other features include the ability to identify trends over time to help make repair vs. replace decisions. The solution is also available for sterilisation and surgical departments.

Hydrogen peroxide vapour technology

Using low concentration hydrogen peroxide vapour (HPV) delivered by vapour dispersal technology, the ProXcide, can achieve >log 6 reduc- tion of pathogenic micro-organisms – including highly resistant pathogens, such as C.difficile, making it ideal for healthcare settings that need to ensure high levels of efficacy. Using ProXcin 7.5% HPV, the

ProXcide provides a fully automated decontamination cycle, ensuring the same level of efficacy is achieved during every decontamination process. This effective method of decontamination has been advanced by INIVOS, which also offers ultraviolet-C (UV-C) technology. Once in the room it operates entirely automatically to reduce potential human error; the ProXcide decontamination robot is able to survey the environment and assess different variables to calculate how long it will need to decontaminate the space for.

The device also offers a high level of safety including a detailed checklist that cannot be bypassed by the users. ProXcide contains an integrated deactivation unit that quickly and efficiently deactivates hydrogen peroxide in the treatment room, providing reassurance and control over the process. The system is designed to work with a specially formulated low concentration hydrogen peroxide, ProXcin, which is developed to achieve high levels of efficacy without the risks associated with high concentration chemicals. The Wifi enabled touch screen device provided allows full visibility of the decontamination process during each stage, followed by a validation report to confirm that an effective decontamination cycle has been completed. With an average cycle time of just under two hours, the ProXcide is highly efficient – making it ideal for decontamination in a variety of clinical settings.

Innovative range of anaesthesia machines

MINDRAY’s latest A8 and A9 anaesthesia machines feature integrated high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) technology, which helps to extend the window of therapeutic action for anaesthetists by prolonging safe apnoeic oxygenation levels, allowing up to 30 minutes of safe oxygenated apnoea time. Studies have found that HFNC can more than double the average duration of apnoea before desaturation. Data from a wide range of external monitoring modules – such as bispectral index, neuromuscular


transmission and intravenous imaging – can be seamlessly integrated and displayed by the new devices without any extra monitoring screens. Enabling anaesthetists to collect more data at a glance, the modular design also fulfils the need for fewer devices in the- atre, allowing anaesthetists to utilise a larger workspace and spend more time closely observing their patients. In order to optimise gas usage and quickly provide a balanced response to changes in patient status without user intervention, the A9 uses Automatic

Low temperature sterilisation solutions

LTE SCIENTIFIC has introduced a range of low temperature sterilisation products to aid the reprocessing of heat-sensitive medical devices and surgical instruments, including endoscopes, lumened/non-lumened instruments and surgical robotic instruments. The new products include the Matachana 50HPO and Matachana 130HPO low temperature hydrogen peroxide and plasma sterilisers, and the BluKat sterilising solution container for 130HPO and 50HPO sterilisers. The Matachana BluKat cartridges have an extended shelf life of 18 months, or 30 days once in use, and just one cartridge can provide enough sterilant for up to 30 cycles. Designed to ensure user safety, the sterilisers use vapourised hydrogen peroxide – a complementary method to steam sterilisation. They are claimed to be environmentally efficient in terms of energy usage and reduced utility consumption, as well as offering time savings. John Lees, managing director at LTE Scientific, said: “As specialists in the areas of decontamination for healthcare central sterilisation and endoscopy departments, we have recognised the growing need for effective low temperature sterilisation, and adding the Matachana HPO range to our portfolio means that we can now provide a fully integrated infection control solution for the medical industry.”

Controlled Anaesthesia (ACA). Through its precision electronic vaporiser and ACA platform, the A9 adjusts fresh gas and vaporiser output to hit patient targets using both end-tidal and inspiratory oxygen measurements.
