KC Airway Taping System
A clean, single-use airway securing and eye closure taping system designed to reduce healthcare acquired infection risks and address cross contamination that can occur during intubation when a roll of tape is used on multiple patients.
It's time for a BETTER airway taping practice!
KC Airway Taping System is Setting New Standards
The Tape Problem
Tape is currently one of the few items in anesthesia practice and emergency room settings that is not designated single use. Tape cannot be decontaminated between patient use and provider handling.
Well documented in medical literature, rolls of tape are a proven vector of virulent organisms and have been identified as a contributor to disease transmission and hospital acquired infections. Hospitals increasingly rely on single-use devices to minimize infection risk.
The KelCor Solution
Borrowing on current taping practice in its application, KC Airway Taping System is a clean, single-use airway securing and eye closure device designed to reduce healthcare acquired infection risks and address cross contamination during intubation when a roll of tape is often used on multiple patients.
"A better taping practice must be implemented to reduce the risk of pathogen exposure and pathogen transmission, to ensure patient safety."
