Resumen:
Un grupo de investigación de un hospital español ha desarrollado un aplicador para insertar un catéter en vasos sanguíneos y minimizar el riesgo de flebitis o bacteriemia asociada a la infección de catéteres, especialmente en catéteres venosos periféricos. El grupo de investigación busca fabricantes de dispositivos médicos de plástico con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia, así como proveedores médicos que trabajen con hospitales.

Tittle:
Catheter applicator that minimize the risks of phlebitis or bacteraemia infection
Summary:
A Research Group from a Spanish Hospital has developed a catheter applicator device for inserting a catheter into a blood vessel in order to minimize the risks of phlebitis or bacteraemia infection associated with catheter, particularly peripheral venous catheter, infection. The group is looking for license agreement.
Description:
Catheter-associated bacteraemia is one of the most common causes of hospital-acquired infection. The incidence of catheter-associated bacteraemia for every 1000 days of hospitalization ranges between 0.30 and 0.50 according to various published series. A considerable number of those bacteraemia are related to venous catheters inserted into peripheral veins. There are in the market, at present, auxiliary peripheral venous catheter canalization devices intended for protecting health personnel and other devices aiding to optimize the procedure (by means of systems for fixing and stabilizing the catheter on the patient); However, there is not known a system designed particularly for reducing the incidence of bacteraemia and peripheral catheter-associated infections.

A research group working at a National Hospital and on improveing health care products has developed a medical device for inserting a catheter into a blood vessel. The catheter applicator device helps to insert a catheter into a blood vessel. The objective of which is to minimize the risks of phlebitis or bacteraemia infection associated with catheter, particularly peripheral venous catheter, and infection.

The group is looking for companies manufacturing plastic medical devices for licences agreement. Also they have interest in medical supplier companies working with hospitals.
Advantages and Innovations:
With the catheterization instruments existing today, it is necessary for the health personnel to touch the proximal area of the catheter with their fingers when performing the insertion technique, it being possible for them to thereby contaminate the body of the catheter. That is why, an appliance has been proposed in order to insert a catheter into a blood vessel to minimize the risks of phlebitis or bacteraemia infection associated with catheter, particularly peripheral venous catheter, infection.
