Baxa Corporation Features PadLock®Set Saver at the Infusion Nurses Society Annual Meeting in Phoenix, AZ
May 05, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsEnglewood, Colo. – At the annual INS Meeting and Industrial Exhibition, Baxa Corporation is promoting its new PadLock Set Saver; an aseptic IV administration set storage solution that can be swabbed and reused. PadLock provides a secure seal for the end of the administration set, preventing contamination when the set is not being used for infusion. Effective for multiple uses, the Set Saver attaches to an IV administration set and replaces the need for sterile, single-use caps. During the three-day exhibition, the Baxa sales team will demonstrate the new device at booth #420.
The Annual meeting is a great way for nurses to see how the innovative PadLock device is designed to promote best practice for aseptic IV administration set disconnections, preventing touch contamination and securing the IV line in between drug administrations. They will also be able to see how the Set Saver can eliminate the use of IV administration set caps, which are a known choking hazard. The PadLock Set Saver provides temporary aseptic storage of the IV administration line when disconnected from the patient, replacing the need for disposable caps to maintain aseptic procedure.
