Brief Description

Description :

VapCare is an automated secretion management and oral hygiene system for ICU patients on mechanical ventilation. VAPCare provides a completely closed system for intelligent and accurate removal of saliva and secretions in a ventilated patient- without any risk of exposure of the nurse to these secretions. VAPCare also significantly reduces the nursing burden by automating a key nursing step in the management of ventilated patients- which will also be critical in the impending shortages of nursing staff with increased ICU admissions for COVID.
