CareFusion Launches Respiratory Airway Adapter to Improve Patient Safety and Reduce Hospital Costs
Date:12/8/2010

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- CareFusion (NYSE: CFN), a leading, global medical device company, today announced the launch of Verso™ 90 adapter, a component that enables uninterrupted access to a ventilated patient's airway without having to disconnect the patient from the ventilator. Disconnecting a patient from the ventilator circuit can lead to life-threatening lung infections and degradation of lung function.

The new Verso 90 adapter is part of the AirLife™ Closed-Suction System which is different from traditional closed-suction catheters because of its modularity. With this system, a clinician can change catheters or perform various airway access procedures through a single port without having to disconnect the patient from the ventilator. This leads to increased patient safety because disconnecting a patient from the ventilator circuit can lead to lung derecruitment, which in some patients, may result in atelectasis or hypoxemia.

In addition, keeping a closed system when changing catheters or performing bronchoscopies, reduces the risk of cross contamination which can lead to ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). The incident of VAP is 22.8 percent in patients receiving mechanical ventilation(1), with a cost of $28,508 per patient(2) and increases the length of stay in the hospital by an average of 12.2 days(3).
