(APIC) Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, Inc. We are currently exhibiting at this show at the Baltimore Convention Center, today through Wednesday. Come visit us if you’re here – the Nephros booth is #544.
Burn patients are highly susceptible to infections from contaminated hydrotherapy equipment. Over 60% of gram negative bacteria outbreaks in burn units have been associated with hydrotherapy equipment. Gram negative bacteremia is associated with over 50% increased risk of mortality in burn patients.
The Nephros DSU is a point-of-use filter that eliminates waterborne pathogens. The filter can be installed on shower systems, tubs and sinks. If your unit has specialty showers, we can provide the fittings to adapt them for use with the DSU.
Filter specifications show the DSU will filter your water to .005 microns, which ensures your patients are receiving bacteria-free water. The DSU should last approximately 90 days, as opposed to other filters (which are .02 microns) that last 1-2 weeks.
Visit our booth (#415) at the American Burn Association meeting next week (March 29 – April 1) in Chicago.
Biological Water Filters creates biologically engineered water filters that are required for immuno-compromised patients in hospitals and health-conscious consumers in homes. To learn more, contact us today at 407-444-1066.
Please visit us at booth #415 at The American Burn Association meeting in Chicago, March 29 – April 1, 2011.
Burn patients can unknowingly be exposed to waterborne pathogens during their treatment procedures. The Nephros DSU can filter your water and reduce the chance of infections in these immune-compromised patients. Studies show how the DSU can reduce your infection rates.
The most serious and most common cause of infections in burn patients is from a waterborne pathogen, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. All hospital patients can be exposed to infections from hospital water due to biofilm in the water system. Centralized disinfection is unable to remove this biofilm. A study was conducted at two large US hospitals to determine the effectiveness of point-of-use ultrafiltration for infection control. After the Nephros DSU was installed, waterborne bacteria was eliminated. We will be exhibiting the DSU at the American Burn Association Meeting in Chicago on March 29 – April 1, 2011.
Nephros will have a booth (#1832) at the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) Renal Week. This meeting is Nov. 16-21, 2010, at the Colorado Convention Center, Denver. If you’re attending, stop by and see us!
This October, Biological Water Filters will be attending two trade shows.
In Biloxi, MS, from October 13-15, 2010, we will be set up at the Beau Rivage for the Network 8 Dialysis Show.
On October 20-23, 2010, we are attending the 22nd Annual World Burn Congress in Galveston, Texas at the Moody Gardens Hotel.
We are looking forward to the trades shows this October and hope to see some of you there. Biological Water Filters produces pure water filters for Hospitals, Health-care facilities, and homes. For more information on Biological Water Filters, call 407-444-1066.
