To celebrate the success of Curos Port Protectors, Vygon are offering 20% off all UK direct orders until 29/11/13.
Curos Port Protector offers a simple solution to a widespread problem. Each year, thousands of patients contract potentially life-threatening catheter-related bloodstream infections; and current protocols for ensuring correct cleaning of IV and needle-free devices are hard to enforce and measure. These avoidable infections not only cost millions, they also have an impact on the patient’s therapy and hospital experience.
To help tackle this problem, Vygon has introduced Curos Port Protector, a simple, innovative device that provides healthcare professionals with an effective method of reducing CRBSI. Each Curos Port Protector contains a medical grade foam pad impregnated with 70% isopropyl alcohol. As the Curos Port Protector is screwed into place, the disinfecting foam pad scrubs the IV access port. Independent laboratory tests show that Curos disinfects the device’s surface by killing bacteria in three minutes and prevents recolonisation for up to seven days.
Contact Vygon today to claim 20% off your next Curos order.
