Cardinal Health, a global provider of products and services that improve the safety and productivity of health care, launched nine new products targeted to improve the safety and efficiency within operating rooms, including high-performance surgical scrubs, a high-tech mobile fluid management system, advances in automated medical supply dispensing and new surgical instruments.

Cardinal Health is entering the surgical scrubs market with the introduction of the ENDURA performance apparel line of high-performance, custom-fit surgical apparel. The launch of the ENDURA line of performance apparel marks the first radical innovation in surgical scrubs since the 1960s.

ENDURA performance apparel is inspired by high-tech athletic wear and is made from an advanced synthetic material that is breathable and flexible to keep surgeons and nurses dry and comfortable, even after multiple hours in the O.R. To help regulate body temperature, ENDURA performance apparel utilizes ACTIVE MOISTURE MANAGEMENT technology to transfer excess moisture from the surface of the skin and transports it to the surface of the fabric where it evaporates quickly, allowing the body to cool naturally. This new material is also abrasion- and tear-resistant, making it more durable and nearly doubling the number of uses versus traditional scrubs.

Additionally, ENDURA performance apparel offers surgeons and nurses surgical apparel with a unique custom fit. Sizing is based on research of the actual dimensions of thousands of health care workers in the U.S., and the cut of the shirt and pant follow the natural line of the body, eliminating the bulky feel and appearance of traditional scrubs.

High-tech fluid collection and disposal system
Cardinal Health is also introducing the ORwell fluid collection and disposal system, created in collaboration with frontline health care professionals, including operating room nurses and infection control specialists. The ORwell fluid collection and disposal system is the only closed fluid collection disposal system that utilizes a single-use disposable collection disc with a 20 liter liner.

The ORwell fluid collection and disposal system is designed with a low center of gravity and weighs one-third less than competitive systems for easy maneuverability through hallways, doorways and crowded operating rooms. The mobile device docking station automatically initiates and terminates the disposal process.

"The ENDURA line of performance apparel and the ORwell fluid collection and disposal system are two new innovations that fill unmet needs in today's operating rooms," said Mike Lynch, chief executive officer for Cardinal Health's Medical segment. "Improving clinician comfort and safety, increasing procedure efficiency and protecting patients are the hallmarks of Cardinal Health's offerings to the O.R."

Advances in automated medical supply dispensing
Cardinal Health is introducing the Pyxis ProcedureStation system with Tissue and Implant module an industry-first, fully integrated system that helps hospitals meet The Joint Commission standards for the tracking of tissues, biologics and other implantables. The Tissue and Implant Module is fully integrated with the secure, closed-loop automated Pyxis system and creates an electronic chain of custody record from the hospital loading dock to post-implant tracking. The new system improves recall response time, charge capture and workflow efficiency.
