Teleflex Inc is showcasing its CleanSweep Closed Suction System (CSS) at the 70th AARC Congress in Indianapolis this week. The device is an innovative closed suction catheter designed to remain in-line for up to 72 hours.

Unlike standard closed suction catheters, the CleanSweep System provides enhanced secretion removal through a dual operation of balloon sweeping technology with suction collection, according to Teleflex.

“Teleflex is committed to providing progressive technologies that meet the evolving needs of our customers,” said James Ferguson, President of the Teleflex Respiratory Division. “The introduction of the CleanSweep System highlights our dedication to connecting clinicians with technology in a way that improves clinical practice and advances patient outcomes.”

In addition, Teleflex will be highlighting its turnkey solution for High Flow Nasal Cannula Therapy (HFNCT), a new standard of care for patients with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure. HFNCT has grown in usage 20% year over year and studies published in The New England Journal of Medicine suggest treatment with HFNCT, compared to noninvasive ventilation or standard oxygen masks, can improve survival rates among patients with Acute Hypoxemic Respiratory Failure.

Finally, in recognition of recent tragic events like Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Maria, Teleflex will be partnering with the AARC to raise awareness for the AARC Disaster Relief Fund. This fund helps support individuals and families impacted by a state or federal disaster. With Congress participation, Teleflex will be donating up to $25,000 to the AARC Disaster Relief Fund.
