BPR Medical showcases world’s number one demand valve at EBME Seminar 2018.
When specifying analgesic demand valves, EBME Managers look for equipment that not only gives patients the best possible pain relief, they also need it to be as safe, reliable and comfortable as possible.
The Ultraflow™ demand valve, being showcased by BPR Medical at this year’s EBME Seminar, has been proven to outperform all other systems on the market. In fact, tests by Cardiff University’s Medical Device Evaluation Centre show that the Ultraflow™ delivers twice as much pain relief for the same effort, compared with other demand valve systems.
This performance is achieved thanks to the exceptionally high peak flow rates the Ultraflow™ delivers. During use, a patented non-linear tilt valve opens wide providing greater gas concentration into the patient’s lungs. In addition, because no separate breathing filters are needed, the space inside the Ultraflow™ is minimised. This means that no exhaled breath is rebreathed back into the demand valve handset and no leakage during inhalation, so all of the patient’s effort results in breathing analgesic gas.
The risk of patient cross-infection is also virtually eliminated with the Ultraflow™, thanks to its unique patented exhalation valve and electrostatic viral filter. Exhaled breath is directed away from the handset and, with an optional accessory, can be diverted to an Active Gas Scavenging System (AGSS).
Alison Fisher, Sales Manager, BPR Medical, said, “The Ultraflow™ is the most efficient demand valve available. In fact, we are frequently told by our customers – including midwives, endoscopists and Accident & Emergency staff – how comfortable and easy to use patients find the Ultraflow™.”
Developed in partnership with UK-based nurses, midwives and specialist gas control experts, the Ultraflow™ features an impact absorbing latex-free cover, requires minimal maintenance, and is virtually unbreakable, having been tested to over one million breathing cycles.
“The Ultraflow™ has been designed with patients in mind,” adds Alison. “It’s light, mobile and ergonomic, as well as warm and soft to touch, with no exposed metal. We currently supply the Ultraflow™ to thousands of healthcare settings around the globe, and direct to the largest gas company in the world, who insist on it because it is the most reliable, safe and comfortable demand valve on the market.”
Alongside the Ultraflow™, BPR Medical is highlighting its wider range of gas control devices at EBME Seminar 2018, including its award-winning Firesafe™ range of flowmeters and nozzles, which make oxygen therapy safer for everyone by minimising the risk of oxygen therapy fires; its Dialflow meters, pressure regulators and accessories specifically designed to meet the intense demands of medical environments; and its Micro?ow neonatal flowmeters, which were developed in association with neonatologists to deliver incredibly accurate and repeatable micro step changes in oxygen flow.
Many of BPR Medical’s products, including the Ultraflow™ demand valve, are only available direct from BPR Medical, so UK hospital customers benefit from the best possible prices and expert technical expertise and customer support.
