Bayer HealthCare Launches Hemophilia Self-Infusion Training Program
Date:7/9/2009

Centre, Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, Australia, and inventor of BayCuff(TM). "For both parents and boys themselves, self-treatment brings the ultimate goal - independence. The BayCuff self-infusion training program allows them to address issues such as needle phobias, working with their non-dominant hand and using veins they have not used before. Materials are designed to incorporate basic as well as more advanced information so teaching can be adapted based on the child's level of understanding. I applaud Bayer for making this innovative program available to the thousands of children who live with hemophilia A."

The BayCuff training program, being distributed exclusively by Bayer HealthCare to healthcare providers, is available to all patients at no cost. It is important for patients and/or parents to receive proper instruction on its use from their healthcare provider. The program comes in a blue tote with all components, including the adjustable cuff, tubing veins containing non-toxic, washable mock blood, pre-filled syringes and other materials required for infusion plus an instructional video and instructional manual for patients with hemophilia A and caregivers, as well as one for healthcare providers. The BayCuff program is designed to be used by any patient, regardless of their hemophilia A therapy.

"The BayCuff self-infusion training program started with Bayer listening to the needs of the hemophilia A community and then partnering with experts to develop an innovative approach," said Paul Bedard, Vice President and General Manager, Hematology, Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals. "Along with Kogenate(R) FS, antihemophilic factor (recombinant), Bayer is committed to providing progressive educational support services that empower patients with hemophilia A to better understand and take greater control of their condition and gain independence."
