After installing SplitFit to interconnect their CO2 cylinders, they now benefit from continuous gas flow during all laparoscopic procedures. The risk of running out during the procedure is eliminated, and patients are safer.
There are 1.5million abdominal laparoscopic procedures annually
….and over 90% of theatres have bottled gas. The risk of an uncontrolled bleed during the switch over time is ever present. The time to switch is usually only a few minutes, but it can be as long as up to an hour according to published data.
Dangerous: An uncontrolled bleed in the wrong moment can be life threatening.
Expensive: Every minute a Theatre stands still it costs £15 per minute.
Unnecessary: Avoiding harm is a duty for any healthcare professional, and the SplitFit solution does exactly that.
