TransLite LLC provides the world’s most trusted vein finders for IV access. Ten years ago, they pioneered the use of disposable plastic covers on transilluminators for infection control. Today, every product is created with infection control as a main focus of the design process. No need to worry about cross contamination with TransLite’s innovative products.
All Veinlite models, including LED+, EMS Pro, LEDX, Neo, R, and PEDI are designed to be used with single-use disposable plastic covers at all times. They are inexpensive and easy to use, allowing providers to easily improve infection control measures during procedures involving IV access.
Recently, we’ve been watching the novel Coronavirus that causes COVID-19 spread around the world rapidly. Infection Control has moved into the mainstream. Infection Control is considered a sub-discipline of epidemiology, aimed at preventing the spread of infectious disease from patient-to-patient and patient-to-provider contexts.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC.org) has developed the following standard precautions for all patient care:
• Performing proper hand hygiene
• Using personal protective equipment (PPE) in cases of possible exposure
• Following respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette
• Ensuring proper patient placement
• Proper handling and disinfecting equipment and environment
• Careful handling of textiles and laundry
• Following safe injection practices
• Ensuring healthcare provider safety (i.e. needle handling)
With a disease like COVID-19, droplet and airborne precautions also come into effect. These include source control, restricted access of personnel to patient, limiting transportation of patients, and other methods.
OpenMarkets and TransLite urge all healthcare providers and emergency personnel to exercise increased Infection Control vigilance during this critical time by following all applicable CDC protocols.
