Solution & blanket warming cabinets Designed specifically for use in hospitals, the

LTE Kingfisher range of solution and blanket warming cabinets is designed to provide an accurate and cost-effective means for storing and warming a wide variety of clinical items -

such as irrigation and infusion liquids, filled syringes, ointments, lotions and blankets. The control panel has been designed to help prevent accidental or unauthorised tampering with the temperature control or on/off switch. Temperatures are PID controlled and a digital temperature display constantly monitors chamber conditions. For additional security, a Key or PIN operated door lock can be added to all models. Kingfisher blanket warming cabinets, from LTE Scientific, are suitable for storing solutions as well as blankets and are supplied with 2 or 4 shelves, depending on the model. These cabinets are not fan circulated, ensuring maximum storage and safety.

Protecting staff and patients

Environmental cleaning in health and social care environments is a key intervention in infection prevention. By maintaining a clean and sanitary environment, your facility can improve patient satisfaction while reducing the transmission of infections and re-admissions. PDI Europe’s 200ct Sani-Cloth AF Universal disposable disinfection wipes are designed for surfaces and medical devices. Alcohol and PHMB free, Sani-Cloth AF Universal wipes have a broad spectrum of kill with low contact times. Compliant with standard EN 16615:2015, a specifically developed method to test the efficacy of disinfectant wipes in real-life situations, the wipes are said to make it easier to protect staff and patients. PDI Europe works as a total


solutions partner by providing educational resource, on-going support, and a range of products.

PDI Europe says the company is driven by a higher purpose, to lead the fight against preventable infections and help save lives.

Integrated workflow system

The Canexis integrated workflow solution from Cantel links data and decision-making to support the efficient operation of critical hospital departments.

Canexis Endoscopy Solution allows users to monitor every step of the patient’s experience in a department, to support quality patient

care. The traceability, ownership and accountability that the software delivers helps support patient safety and infection prevention. The system was developed in close collaboration with endoscopy experts to create a high quality, user-friendly tool that enables users to always execute best practices. It is designed to be flexible and configurable to support workflow requirements. It enables users to determine the status and location of an entire endoscope inventory, at a glance, with the endoscope monitoring dashboard. This provides information on which endoscopes are ready for use, which endoscopes need to be reprocessed, and enables users to track which endoscopes are out for repair and see trends over time to help make repair vs. replace decisions.


fluid warmer The Association of Anaesthetists recently published a study entitled ‘Aluminium release by coated and uncoated fluid- warming devices’, which highlighted the risk of aluminium absorption from uncoated fluid warming devices. The 37Company’s Fluido Compact blood and fluid warmer, available in the UK from Central Medical Supplies (CMS), is a coated device. The study concludes: ‘Coating for aluminium within medical devices in direct contact with infusion fluids should be recommended.’ The study evaluated two fluid warming systems, one uncoated and one coated, and found that potentially unacceptably high levels of aluminium are created when fluids are passed through an uncoated warming device. Following these results, the Association of Anaesthetists recommends all aluminium components of fluid warming systems that are in direct contact with infusion fluids should be coated. Biocompatible coatings, such as Parylene, are used in some devices to avoid direct contact between aluminium and fluid. All aluminium parts of the Fluido Compact system, which are in direct contact with the infusion and irrigation fluids, are Parylene coated, in line with the recommendations.

The device is said to be an easy to use, accurate, safe and cost effective system for daily blood and fluid warming. The system rapidly warms fluids to the target temperature, and it has a one button operation and intuitive control panel. The disposable set comprises of a cassette, a 40cm patient line and priming volume of 3 ml. The system provides accurate and safe warming, as it comes with embedded software for maximum patient safety through an independent control system and multiple temperature sensors. As it requires no maintenance, Fluido Compact is designed to be a cost effective system.
