WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), a leading global provider of medical technologies for critical care and surgery, will showcase its broad portfolio of products for Respiratory Care at the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) Congress 2016, October 15-18, in San Antonio, TX. During the event, Teleflex will highlight solutions for Mechanical Ventilation, High Flow Nasal Cannula Therapy, as well as solutions for Arterial Access.
At the Congress, Teleflex will be highlighting the Hudson RCI® Comfort Flo® Plus Cannula, the Hudson RCI® Neptune® Heated Humidifier with ConchaSmartTM Technology and recent portfolio additions from Maxtec®, a leader in oxygen analysis and delivery products for more than 15 years. With these Maxtec additions, Teleflex offers respiratory care professionals a turn-key solution for heated high flow nasal cannula therapy (HFNCT), a new standard of care for patients with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure. HFNCT has been shown to improve survival rates in these patients compared to standard Oxygen Masks or Non-Invasive Ventilation.1
“Teleflex is committed to providing advanced solutions to meet the evolving needs of the respiratory care professional,” said James Ferguson, President of Teleflex, Respiratory Division. “We are proud to be an AARC corporate partner and we are dedicated to enhancing the quality of patients’ lives by improving outcomes through clinical education and technology advancements for respiratory care.”
As respiratory therapists’ scope of practice continues to expand and the placement of arterial catheters is becoming more commonplace in this field, Teleflex will also be highlighting Arrow® Arterial Catheters. The Arrow® Brand leads the market2 with a comprehensive product line of arterial catheters and CDC compliant kits. On Friday, October 14, there will be a preconference educational session titled “Arterial Fundamentals: Ultrasound Guided Arterial Catheter Insertion.” The four-hour simulation course will review best practices for arterial catheter insertion and knowledge of prevention, recognition and management of insertion-related complications from arterial catheters. Teleflex is proud to support the expanded role of the respiratory therapist to include arterial catheter insertion.
Teleflex is honored to invite AARC Congress attendees to stop by Teleflex booth #623 in support of the American Respiratory Care Foundation (ARCF). Teleflex will be donating up to $30,000 to ARCF for AARC Congress attendee in-booth participation, further demonstrating our commitment to connecting clinicians with education in a way that helps improve patient outcomes and advances respiratory care throughout the world.
