Next standard of care in Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI) prevention
Biofilm-resistant endotracheal tube
Designed to reduce ventilator associated respiratory infections (VARI)
and significantly lower overall cost of care
The CeraShield™ ETT is approved for marketing in Canada and Belize with other approvals pending. The CeraShield™ ETT is an investigational device in the United States.
Medical device-associated biofilms pose a serious threat to human health and lead to nosocomial infections
New strategies are urgently needed
Over 6 million potential deaths from nosocomial infections worldwide each year 3
50–70% of nosocomial infections are related to indwelling medical devices.
CeraShield™ biofilm-resistant coating works to prevent infection and inflammation
Creates hydration layer that inhibits bacterial adhesion to the surface, creating a “moat” around the device.
The CeraShield™ coating’s net positive charge attracts the negatively-charged membranes of certain viruses, fungi, and bacteria.
As the CeraShield™ coating and pathogen get closer together, the CeraShield™ coating begins to permeabilize and depolarize the cell
membrane, leading to rapid cell death.
VENTILATOR-ASSOCIATED PNEUMONIA: WHAT IS THE REAL COST?
Each added case of ventilator
respiratory infection adds between
$10,000–$50,000 (US). 7
