CareFusion has unveiled new products and highlighted the patient safety benefits of its ventilation and respiratory technology portfolio at the 59th International Respiratory Convention and Exhibition of the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) Congress.

The new products on display include the Ventilator Associated Event (VAE) application for the CareFusion Respiratory Knowledge Portal, AirLife Misty Fast disposable small-volume nebulizer, AirLife manual self-inflating resuscitation devices II and the new Vmax Vyntus SPIRO for pulmonary function testing.

In addition to its portfolio of ventilators and respiratory products in the exhibit booth, CareFusion’s LTV series ventilators will be highlighted in a hands-on workshop on emergency preparedness at the Congress.

CareFusion Respiratory Technologies general manager Kevin Ketzel said the company takes a comprehensive look at its customers’ respiratory needs across their hospitals and health systems to implement the right respiratory and ventilation systems for each of their unique goals and priorities.

"We have tools to simplify the vast amounts of data generated by ventilators and respiratory devices, which creates a dashboard to improve both patient safety and compliance to best practice protocols," Ketzel added.
