    The IP-Pouch is a replacement technology for plastic bags used for storing reusable nasal cannula, HHN’s and other respiratory devices. Plastic bags retain moisture and allow harmful microbes to survive and thrive. The IP-Pouch is made from a breathable wicking material that removes moisture allowing the microbes to die naturally.

In a study at a California State University completed February 27, 2013, the time zero numbers were captured to chart the actual increase or decrease of the staph microbial counts on the nasal cannula in a Plastic Bag, Polyester Mesh Bag & Spun Fiber Polypropylene Bag (SF-1) for 1 hour.

Nosocomial Infections Cost You More Than Just Money!

The IP-Pouch - Save Time...Save Money...Save Lives...

  • Save Time - The IP-Pouch is easy to attach and remove in one of three ways: peel and stick tape, drawstring, or velcro straps, and only needs to be replaced once per month or PRN, freeing up much needed time for staff.
  • Save Money - Replacing the IP-Pouch once per month is cheaper than replacing a plastic bag once per week, plus, each nosocomial infection costs facilites thousands of dollars... and those dollars are not all reimbursable.
  • Save Lives - "The mortality rate for respiratory infections in nursing homes is as high as 55%." - Infectious Disease Clinics of North America, 2007
  • Priced at only $1.99 MSRP each, volume discounts available
