BioDrain Medical Exhibits at National Registered Nurses Conference Automated Surgical Fluid Disposal System to Showcase Technology at Association of periOperative Registered Nurses Conference in San Diego
, /PRNewswire/ -- BioDrain Medical, Inc., (OTCQB: BIOR), producer of the FDA approved STREAMWAY System for automated, direct-to-drain surgical fluid disposal that reduces the risk of exposure to hazardous waste, announced today that it will exhibit its breakthrough technology at the 60 Annual Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) Congress in in March.
BioDrain will showcase the Company's groundbreaking FDA approved STREAMWAY System from San Diego Convention Center
Today's manual surgical fluid handling method, which means hand-carrying surgical fluid canisters and emptying these canisters into drains and sinks, creates a great exposure risk and is an antiquated approach to the handling of surgical fluid waste. BioDrain's STREAMWAY System is a direct-to-drain product that is a stationary system installed into each surgical room and hooked into a hospital's existing drain and vacuum system. Unlike other fluid management options, the STREAMWAY System has continuous suction and unlimited capacity.
"We are experiencing a rapid upswing in awareness about our flagship technology as hospitals search for safer and more efficient ways to dispose of surgical fluids. Demonstrating the STREAMWAY System at the AORN Congress is a great opportunity to share this technology with the healthcare personnel who are on the front lines when it comes to removing surgical waste after procedures," said , Chief Executive Officer at BioDrain Medical. "These are the people who will truly understand the impact of an automated direct-to-drain system for them it means less time and less risk of exposure to potentially dangerous materials."
"The feedback we get from nurses and doctors is resoundingly positive. The STREAMWAY System improves operating room safety by offering a cleaner, safer surgical fluid disposal solution that is more reliable and less expensive than the existing manual processes," continued Mr. Kornberg. "In fact, 100 percent of our trial installations have resulted in a sale of the system, so we believe that offering AORN Congress participants the chance to interface with the technology will help thousands of healthcare leaders realize the positive impact the STREAMWAY System can have on their practicesin terms of budget, safety, ease-of-use and environmental mindfulness."
