Durham, N.C., June 20, 2019 — LifeFlow, a simple new device for rapid delivery of a targeted fluid bolus, is one of the medical innovations that was showcased in front of thousands of healthcare providers at Premier Inc.’s 2019 Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition on June 18.
410 Medical’s LifeFlow device was debuted during the conference’s 11th annual Innovation Celebration, an event recognizing advancements in healthcare and highlighting suppliers dedicated to furthering innovation and improving patient outcomes in the industry.
“410 Medical shares Premier’s commitment to providing valuable products to our alliance members that are safe, high-quality and cost-effective,” said David A. Hargraves, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain, Premier. “These innovations can truly benefit providers in our shared work to transform healthcare.”
LifeFlow is a simple hand-held tool for rapid, controlled delivery of a fluid bolus in critically ill patients. With LifeFlow, health care providers are able to set up and deliver a targeted fluid bolus up to 10x faster than standard fluid delivery methods. Clinicians and other health system members of Premier selected LifeFlow to be showcased at the Innovation Celebration due to its uniqueness, ability to have an impact on unmet clinical needs, and potential to improve patient care.
“Early fluid resuscitation in patients with shock and hypotension has been proven to improve outcomes and avoid additional interventions,” said Kyle Chenet, Chief Executive Officer of 410 Medical. “We are honored to see LifeFlow recognized as a Breakthrough Innovation and are excited to partner with Premier and its member hospitals to continue to improve patient care.”
