Transfer Patients Using a Cushion of Air
The Prevalon Liftaem Mobile Patient Transfer System from Sage Products uses a cushion of air to move patients of all sizes laterally from one surface to another with significantly less pulling and without the need for lifting. Unlike other lateral transfer alternatives, Liftaem is a point-of-care system. The mobile blower cart accommodates a dispenser carton of Liftaem mattresses for immediate accessibility by staff members. sageproducts.com

Disposable Teardrop Suction Tubes
These single-use suction tubes help create the clear visual field necessary for delicate surgical procedures. The Teardrop Suction Tubes deliver fine suction by using a teardrop thumb-control. Their tapered cannula reduces clogging, while the 30 ? pre-bent tube helps prevent kinking, says Vascular Technology. And because they're disposable, you won't have to worry about the cross contamination risk of difficult-to-clean narrow channels. Available in sizes 6FR to 14FR. vti-online.com

Adhesive
Permanently Seals Varicose Veins

The VenaSeal closure system permanently treats varicose veins of the legs by sealing the affected superficial veins, using an adhesive. While other treatments rely on a sclerosing agent or thermal energy to close down diseased veins, VenaSeal uses a special medical adhesive that reduces the risk of nerve injury that can occur with thermal-based procedures. Your patients will also be happy since the VenaSeal system doesn't require tumescent anesthesia — reducing the number of needle pricks — and results in minimal to no bruising afterwards. venaseal.com

All-In-One Pencil Evacuates Smoke
Replace your cumbersome surgical smoke attachments with Buffalo Filter's new all-in-one surgical plume evacuation pencil. While most electrosurgical pens or pencils need adapters to capture smoke, the PlumePen Pro is a compact electrosurgical pencil that features a built-in smoke evacuator to capture plume at the point of creation. The company says the pencil was designed to fit surgeons' preferences: Not only is it slim and similar in size to conventional electrosurgical pencils, but it also features a raised texture to improve a surgeon's grip and a 360-degree swivel to allow for a free range of motion. buffalofilter.com

Send Secure Surgical
Video to Multiple Locations

With NDS Surgical's ExpandOR, now you can send surgical video in 1080p high-definition quality to recipients in multiple locations while keeping the transmission secure to protect patient privacy and procedural data. The market's first multi-node secure bi-directional video streaming device lets you input the specific IP addresses of audiences approved to see the video, whether they're surgeons in a room across the hall, students in a teaching facility across town or expert consultants across the globe. The plug-and-play device, which is connected directly to the camera source or to the matrix mixer for formatting the content before transmission, is designed for easy integration into the video chain of fully digital or digital-analog ORs. ndssi.com
