Catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs) are a challenge for any hospital. Not only do they increase patient morbidity and mortality rates from 12 to 25%, but they also increase hospital stays and cost your facility valuable dollars. BioPatch technology works to eliminate that. These antimicrobial catheter dressings provide week-long protection to each patient, thereby saving you time and money used in frequent dressing changes and patient care. Each disk’s time-released solution is activated by the presence of moisture on the skin, and has been proven effective in the presence of organic matter including blood, sera and proteins. Ensure your patients' safety from infections with BioPatch Antimicrobial catheter dressings.
