AirPal Expands Line of Air-Activated Transfer Pads to Include Multi-Purpose Patient Positioning Functionality
Date:8/18/2010

NORTH WALES, Pa., Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- AirPal®, a leading innovator and supplier of lateral air transfer and positioning technology, has announced the expansion of its line of air-activated transfer pads to incorporate multi-purpose patient positioning functionality.

"This announcement marks the launch of an entire new series of AirPal Safe Anatomic Positioning™ systems," said Jim Weedling, President AirPal, Inc.  "Among other functions, these exciting new products will enable nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other caregivers to optimally adjust a patient's angle of elevation for procedures that require precise airway positioning, and more easily transfer patients laterally before and after the procedure."

Announced today was the AirPal RAMP® All-In-One, which stands for Rapid Airway Management Positioning All-In-One system. It is designed primarily for the Operating Room (OR) to facilitate airway management in applications such as pre-oxygenation prior to anesthesia intubation, airway axes alignment for tracheal tube insertion to improve POGO scores and optimize glottic exposure, assistance with extubation to minimize the threat of tissue trauma, and many other procedures that require precise ear to sternal notch positioning. Other potential application areas include use in intensive care situations, emergency medical transport, and certain clinical care procedures.

Safe Anatomic Positioning system

"The RAMP All-In-One is a Safe Anatomic Positioning system that combines lateral transfer technology and flexible patient positioning," said Weedling. "Its objectives are to afford greater safety and comfort for the patient, provide new levels of convenience for surgeons and anesthesiologists, and to assist in the prevention of patient handling injuries."

Injuries to nurses caused by transferring or repositioning patients have been cited as a significant factor behind the medical industry's escalating worker's compensation costs. AirPal pioneered the original concept of using air-activated pads to more safely and easily transfer patients from one surface to another.

Because the RAMP module enables the patient's angle of elevation to be adjusted via a pneumatic AirPod™, OR staff will no longer be required to manually lift the patient and use linens or pillows to achieve the desired elevation. The RAMP differs from conventional patient positioning techniques because it offers continuous adjustability, unlike the static wedges or linen props that must be readjusted each time the patient is moved.  The RAMP was developed over a period of several years in collaboration with leading medical practitioners.
