410 Medical Inc., a Durham, North Carolina-based medical solutions platform, has introduced a new version of its LifeFlow rapid infuser for treating patients afflicted by sepsis or shock. The latest version of the device can safely deliver 500 ml of crystalloid fluid in less than 2 minutes, which is approximately 4-time faster than using a pressure bag, according to the report. The New version, LifeFlow Next Gen, comprised two features, first is Force Reducer that evens out the pulsating flow of fluid and makes it easy on the operator’s arm to grip the device.
The second is AirCheck which halts fluid flow if air gets in while making priming and setup easier. Additionally, it can be reportedly made ready to go and delivering fluid into a patient within about two minutes. In a statement, 410 Medical Chief Executive Officer Kyle Chenet stated that “At 410 our mission is to help paramedics, nurses and physicians provide the best possible care to their critically ill patients.” According to him, “The addition of these important new features further enhances LifeFlow as the most effective tool for delivering a rapid fluid bolus.” Almost 2 years back in 2017, 410 Medical had released its first LifeFlow Rapid Infuser in the U.S. for sepsis or shock patients’ treatment.
The device then can help infuse 500 ml of crystalloid fluid into a patient including both adults and children within two and a half minutes, and an entire liter can be delivered within five minutes. Founded in 2013, 410 Medical has created a simple, intuitive solution which enables an individual care provider to quickly deliver fluid to critically unwell patients, advancing care and saving lives. The company’s device empowers quick set-up, enhances resuscitation speed, lowers provider fatigue, and frees providers to address other patient care issues at the same time.
