Covalon to Showcase Infection Prevention Solutions at the Association for Vascular Access Annual Scientific Meeting

Book an appointment with us and visit booth 607 at the Minneapolis Convention Center from September 30 to October 2 to learn more

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 26, 2022 /CNW/ - Covalon Technologies Ltd. (the "Company" or "Covalon") (TSXV: COV) (OTCQX: CVALF), an advanced medical technologies company, is pleased to announce that it will be co-sponsoring the Association for Vascular Access (AVA) Annual Scientific Meeting and hosting an exhibit from Friday, September 30 to Sunday, October 2, 2022 at the Minneapolis Convention Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Visit us at booth 607 to learn about advanced infection prevention solutions that reduce the burden on patients, practitioners, and caregivers.

Covalon's vascular access infection prevention solutions work to reduce central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) while ensuring patient comfort and include:

  • VALGuard® - an FDA listed, transparent, environmental barrier designed to protect catheter hubs and line connections from external contaminants and gross contamination, including body fluids and other secretions. It incorporates a quick-release pull strip for fast access to infusion hubs and for easy removal.

  • IV Clear®- an antimicrobial vascular access dressing that offers complete transparency at and around the insertion site for easy daily assessment. It uses a soft silicone adhesive to preserve the skin's barrier function and minimize skin injuries and incorporates safe amounts of antimicrobials, without sacrificing efficacy, to protect against chemical irritation.

"Effective infection prevention strategies require the best products targeted at the contributors to the risk of infection," stated Brian Pedlar, CEO of Covalon. "It is imperative that we do all we can to prevent further complications for patients and care providers already experiencing the burdens of primary illnesses. Patients deserve much better care, and they can access it now through these innovative solutions."

VALGuard is the only FDA listed product specifically designed to help prevent vascular line to line contamination, with a safety release mechanism to allow instant access to the line in emergency situations. Vascular access line guards are being recognized as a must-have medical device by major hospitals as 71% of catheter-related infections have been linked to a catheter hub contamination. Patent-pending, VALGuard was developed specifically to help prevent these infections.

IV Clear is the world's only clear dual-antimicrobial IV dressing with soft silicone adhesive technology that is designed to protect patients' skin – even after multiple dressing changes. Studies have shown the high efficacy of the product in preventing infections. What may not be as obvious, however, is that the product has been specifically designed with human experience in mind – patients, clinicians, and caregivers. Covalon's patented technology allows for significantly easier application, monitoring and removal, which is imperative for patients with vulnerable skin, such as pediatric ones.
