Mölnlycke Health Care at forefront of innovation with NEW BARRIER® Hybrid Cardiovascular Drape

October 18 2011

Mölnlycke Health Care, one of the world’s leading providers of single-use surgical products, today announces the launch of BARRIER® Hybrid cardiovascular drape. It is the first drape specially designed to offer the most versatile solution to the highly advanced multi-disciplinary cardiovascular procedures that are becoming more and more common.

The BARRIER Hybrid cardiovascular drape is an all-in-one solution for cardiovascular hybrid procedures involving both minimally invasive and open cardiac surgery and catheter-based coronary interventions. Specifically designed to satisfy these complex requirements, it combines an extra long, extra wide drape with large incise films over the chest and groin areas.

Multi-disciplinary cardiovascular procedures are typically performed in Hybrid Operating Rooms equipped with extra large operating table and very high-tech angiographic equipment, requiring staff from different disciplines to be present. This complex operating-room setting has created very specific demands on the draping.

The BARRIER Hybrid cardiovascular drape is designed to satisfy these demands and it improves efficiency by reducing preparation time and increasing patient safety. It allows for one person to drape, and presents an innovative alternative to multi-draping techniques, which is a very time-consuming and cumbersome task.

The BARRIER Hybrid cardiovascular drape offers a cost-effective all-in-one draping solution for the majority of interventions that are carried out in the new Hybrid Operating Room.

Mölnlycke Health Care takes a holistic approach to enhancing patient care and offers a full range of services and support to accompany their products, resulting in operating room efficiencies. In addition to the innovative and purpose-designed products that Mölnlycke Health Care’s BARRIER range offers, there are obvious delivery and logistical advantages to selecting one complete range, thus creating savings in time, effort and cost for hospital teams.
