We have asked healthcare professionals about the problem and the relevance of our product
@Lise Ekholdt, MD, General Practice:
“It is recognized that biofilm forms within 24 hours in endotracheal tubes of ventilated patients. Unfortunately, we have no methods to prevent formation of biofilm today.
In my opinion a reduction of days in the ventilator could be achieved if biofilm formation was prevented.
We should focus more on the socio-economic benefits such as fewer days in the ventilator and consequently fewer cases of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs)”
The product from UV Clinical which consists of a disposable probe and the UVC light source prevents biofilm to form.
