Atos Medical has a long standing tradition of clinical evidence showing that our products perform well and are safe to use. Over the years, many studies have been performed with our products and we are proud to say that we have more and stronger evidence for our products than any of our competitors.
We continually initiate or participate in clinical studies all over the world. This is made possible through our close cooperation with ENT specialists and patients. Take our Provox voice prostheses for laryngectomees, for instance. The Provox System has been a success from the start and this success is supported by a long list of peer reviewed clinical documentation.
The Kelley Circuit
We are pleased to be able to share information about the Kelley Circuit with you. The Kelley Circuit is a novel method of managing in-hospital self-ventilating tracheostomy patients that allows for humidification, filtration and closed-circuit suctioning.
The Kelley Circuit provides the following:
- Humidification and filtration upon inspiration (protection for patient)
- Filtration upon expiration (protection for the health care professional)
- Closed-circuit and sterile suctioning (protection for patient and health care professional)
Please note that Atos Medical cannot give medical or clinical advice. Physicians and other health care providers reading this message should make independent, informed decisions about the care of their patients based on the individual condition and circumstances of each case.
