Cleveland Clinic Innovates IV Line Management to Preserve PPE During COVID19 Pandemic

For COVID19 and other patients who are in isolation in intensive care units, caregivers use an average of 66 pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) each day. This high number is partially driven by the need to enter patient rooms repeatedly to manage intravenous (IV) pumps that deliver necessary medication and nutrition. By moving the pumps outside of patient isolation rooms, critical care units can preserve their stock of PPE and reduce potential exposure to medical staff.  The issue, until last month, was that there was no way to effectively manage the tangled web of lines that flowed to these pumps without risk to patients and caregivers.

The Breakthrough – ATAC

The ability to identify and measure ocular inflammation is vital in the management of eye diseases.  It is particularly important in the areas of uveitis (the fourth leading cause of blindness worldwide) and post cataract surgery (most common ophthalmic surgery).  Currently, ocular inflammation is measured via clinical examination through a slit lamp microscope or indirect ophthalmoscope. These methods are subject to clinical interpretation and variability between observers.

If you have ever been in the hospital or visited a loved one there, you may have observed endless wires and machines connected to the patient, and nurses frequently visiting to monitor key vital signs.
