Kimberly-Clark Launches KimVent Multi-Access Port Closed Suction System
Date:7/13/2011

ROSWELL, Ga., July 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Marking a significant advance in the fight against Ventilator-associated Pneumonia (VAP), Kimberly-Clark Health Care today announced its launch of KimVent Multi-Access Port (MAP) Closed Suction Systems. The new system features a compact rotating manifold with multi-access ports, allowing clinicians to perform suctioning and other procedures, such as bronchoalveolar lavage, bronchoscopy or MDI drug delivery, while maintaining a closed ventilator circuit.

Designed in collaboration with respiratory therapists, the KimVent Multi-Access Port (MAP) Closed Suction System addresses requirements for VAP prevention best practices from the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) as the system maintains a closed ventilator circuit while allowing for multiple procedures to take place. In addition, the system provides a suction capability with a completely closed airway circuit, thus preventing dangerous environmental contaminants that could potentially cause VAP, enhancing care for both the patient and the caregiver. It also fulfills recommendations as part of a VAP prevention bundle strategy.

"Kimberly-Clark is the long-time leader in the closed suction catheter space, and the KimVent Multi-Access Port (MAP) Closed Suction Systems represents an important evolutionary extension in our ability to help clinicians provide the best possible care to patients," said David Parks, General Manager, Kimberly-Clark Health Care. "The new rotating manifold is a real breakthrough for patient safety in that it allows for the replacement of a catheter without opening the vent circuit, keeping the patient on the ventilator at all times while decreasing the risks of cross-contamination, a potential source for VAP."
