Hi Guys,
I hope you are well. I have been asked to look into scavenging (AGSS) in our delivery suite to investigate staff exposure risks. We currently use therapy comfort demands valves. These have the exhalation outlet connected vis tubing to the AGSS via the MEC receiving system. The issues we are having is that many patients do not like them as a.....they make a noise! and b....they seem heavy with this tubing connected. Also, patients have a tendency to breath it in, then scream it out into the room. Any info at all on how other trusts are managing this will be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance for any input you can offer
