CME Medical, the UK’s fastest growing specialist infusion company, will be presenting a unique preview of their new complete non-luer (neuraxial) connectors solution, which can help hospitals to meet new patient safety standards, on their stand (Stand 7) at the 32nd Annual ESRA Congress, in the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC), Glasgow, (September 4 – 7).
The brand new complete solution will enable hospitals to meet all the requirements under the National Patient Safety Alert (NPSA) on Safer Spinal (intrathecal), epidural and regional devices. The alert specified that from 1 April 2013, all epidural, spinal (intrathecal) and regional anaesthesia infusions and bolus doses should be performed with devices with connectors that will not also connect with intravenous equipment.
CME Medical have been working with Intervene and Chapter to develop their complete solution, with compliant connectors at both ends of the system. Clinicians will be able to see demonstrations of the system, which will join both the patient catheter to the pump, and the rigid bag to the pump, using compliant non-luer Surety® and Nonivlok® connectors, on Stand 7. Delegates at ESRA 2013 will have a unique opportunity to preview this brand new system.
The 32nd annual ESRA Congress is recognised as one of the major European forums in the field, and is a unique opportunity to discuss the latest advances in anaesthesia with leading specialists from across Europe and around the world. The theme this year is “State of the Art Safety Standards in Regional Anaesthesia”.
The event attracts anaesthesiologists, physicians and scientists who are engaged in, or interested in, the techniques of regional anaesthesia for surgery, obstetrics, paediatrics and pain control. The scientific standard at the annual ESRA congress is now recognised as one of the best in Europe and as a result carries a high rating with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, who assign credit hours to all ESRA congresses.
John Carrington, Managing Director of CME Medical, said: “We have been working hard to develop our unique solution to help hospitals improve patient safety by using anaesthesia devices which will not also connect to intravenous equipment. We will soon be able to help all hospitals fully meet the requirements of the NPSA alert and we are delighted to be able to offer a preview to ESRA delegates of this new and vital anaesthesia system.”
