Wean with fewer challenges, and liberate your patients sooner with BALLARD* ET Tube Clearing Systems.
Significantly reduces days on vent & hospital length of stay1
In a study with 18,440 patients, vent days were reduced from 4.8 to 3.7 (p < 0.01), and hospital length of stay was reduced from 10.2 days to 9.4 (p < 0.01).
Achieve better patient outcomes and cost savings to your hospital2
In a 3-year retrospective study of 1,761 cases, the removal of adherent endotracheal tube secretions significantly reduced days on vent as well as ICU and hospital length of stay.
At the facility from this study, the addition of a daily ETT clearing protocol led to an estimated savings of $1.9 million over the length of the study.
MORE INDEPENDENCE. LESS TIME TO LIBERATION.
BALLARD* ET Tube Clearing Systems restore performance of the endotracheal tube, giving patients an improved opportunity to pass their SBT.
