Cardinal Health equips New York 1,850 portable ventilators as part emergency preparedness plan

Cardinal Health : 21 February, 2008  (New Product)
New York has purchased more than 1,850 portable ventilators from Cardinal Health over the past two years as part of the New York Department of Health's public health preparedness programme which is also forms an expanding statewide plan to maintain emergency response readiness.
Cardinal Health has already shipped 850 of its Lap Top Ventilators Series 1200 (LTVs) in ‘GoPack’ configuration to New York state. GoPacks contain ventilators, accessories, tubing and other supplies to immediately deploy for use in emergency situations. GoPacks improve readiness and simplify warehouse storage.

'We are working closely with the state and federal government to support emergency preparedness efforts across the country,” said Ed Pulwer, Cardinal Health’s senior operating executive of Respiratory Technologies and Critical Care. “It is critical that our health care system has access to breathing equipment, specifically ventilators during emergency and disaster situations. There is a growing realisation that preparation for a potential pandemic flu or other crisis is a critical national health care initiative, and this equipment plays a significant role in increasing readiness.”

Cardinal Health is also working with other states to upgrade their emergency operations. Last year, the company supplied 2,400 ventilators to California for its emergency preparedness initiatives and assisted the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services in responding to wildfires in southern California. Today, more than 5,500 LTVs are in state emergency care programmes.

The LTV 1200 Series ventilator is a portable, light-weight, high-acuity ventilator that is optimally designed for emergency and disaster situations. The ventilator offers an intuitive 'in-the-field' user interface, individualised air pressure and volume controls settings, and internal oxygen blending. In addition, the ventilator can be powered from a variety of sources, including an internal and external battery and an automobile auxiliary power outlet.
