PneuX Pneumonia Prevention System

Innovation Type: Medical Device

Speciality:

Innovation Origin: NHS England's ITT

Cuffed ventilator and electronic cuff pressure monitor and controller to prevent ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).

The PneuX Pneumonia Prevention System is a cuff and monitor device which prevents leakage of bacteria-contaminated secretions into the lungs. The cuff pressure monitor then continuously measures pressure and ensure the seal remains effective at all times, even when the patient coughs or moves. PneuX can be used in any patient requiring mechanical ventilation in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), emergency department or for patients undergoing major surgery in operating theatres.
