(the "Company" or "Covalon") (TSXV:COV), an advanced medical technologies company, today announced that it will be presenting its dual antimicrobial silicone adhesive line of products, including IV Clear™ at the Oncology Nursing Society’s (“ONS”) Annual Congress in Denver.
Covalon’s IV Clear™ is indicated to cover and protect vascular access devices used in a wide variety of both acute and alternate care settings. Its patented combination of chlorhexidine and silver is proven to have a synergistic effect against some of the most commonly associated blood stream infection bacteriai and its skin sparing silicone adhesive will not cause adhesive related skin injury or pain during dressing changesii.
“Our presence at ONS is a result of an increasing number of U.S. hospital systems inquiring about, trialing or making IV Clear the dressing of choice for their oncology patients” said John R. Hands, Executive Vice President, Marketing. “The oncology nurse recognizes the importance of protecting the skin’s integrity while simultaneously killing the bacteria on the skin that can cause an infection, and as such, they have proven to be strong advocates for the benefits that IV Clear brings to their patients.”
ONS is a professional association of more than 39,000 members committed to promoting excellence in oncology nursing and the transformation of cancer care.
“To any nurse that has ever said that there has to be something better, I encourage you to stop by our booth for a demonstration of the positive difference that IV Clear can make to an oncology patient’s treatment journey.” said Hands.
