medical devices for critical care and surgery, will showcase a number of
anesthesia, respiratory therapy and vascular access products at the
American Association of Critical-Care Nurses’ National Teaching
Institute & Critical Care Exposition (AACN-NTI) on May 19-24, 2012 in

Teleflex ISIS® HVT™, the first convertible endotracheal
tube, features an integrated suction port and separate suction
line allowing for subglottic secretion suctioning on demand. Now
clinicians can be free from the burden of choosing which tube is best
for the patient at the time of intubation. When needed, a separate
suction line can be attached to the ISIS HVT endotracheal tube via a
secure locking connection. This versatile design allows for use
of one endotracheal tube to meet the needs of patients requiring both
short- and long-term ventilation.
VPS® is a central venous catheter tip location and
navigation technology that allows for real-time accurate confirmation
of placement of peripherally inserted central catheters and central
venous catheters. The VPS® System is indicated for use as an
alternative method to fluoroscopy or chest x-ray for central venous
catheter tip placement confirmation in adult patients when a steady
blue bull’s eye is obtained. NOTE: If a steady blue bull’s eye is not
obtained, standard hospital practice should be followed to confirm
catheter tip location.
Softech® Plus is a NEW brand of
oxygen cannulas for clinicians concerned about reducing DEHP exposure
and improving patient comfort. This advancement in technology will
help the clinician reduce DEHP exposure and enhance the quality of
care. With an exceptional combination of soft, non-DEHP material and
improved product design, Softech Plus is the ideal choice for nasal
cannula oxygen delivery. The Softech Plus® is available in Adult,
Pediatric, Infant and Neonatal sizes.
