Welch Allyn FlexiPort blood pressure cuffs can be assigned to one patient, who can then be connected to virtually any manual or electronic blood pressure device in the facility.

Welch Allyn Clinical Medical and Scientific Affairs senior manager Susan Dubay said that there is a direct correlation between contaminated cuffs and infections and studies show that using one cuff per patient, and adhering to diligent cleaning and disinfection practices, reduces the risk of cross contamination significantly.

“FlexiPort enables a single cuff to be used on multiple devices, so it is no surprise that it has been well received by infection prevention experts across the country and now at Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System.” Dubay said.
