Up to 77% of cleaned, reusable ECG lead wires remain contaminated with potentially harmful pathogens.1
Up to 95% of ICU ECG alarms have been categorized as “clinically irrelevant.”2
There may be inconsistencies in clinical practices and protocols for hospitals’ units, requiring nurses to become fluent in utilizing cables and lead wires for each manufacturer’s monitor.3
Our Kendall DL™ Solution
Kendall DL™ single patient use cable and lead wire system helps reduce the risk of cross contaminations which can lead to cross contamination. In a retrospective analysis, facilities that used Cardinal Health Kendall DL™ single-patient-use ECG cable and lead wires showed a 25% surgical site infection (SSI) reduction at 90 days post-coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) when compared with reusable ECG lead-wire facilities.4
Color-Coded Push Button Design
Designed to help reduce the incidence of false “leads off” alarms and provide indicators for easy placement
In one study, patented push button design has been shown to reduce false "leads off” alarms by 29%.5
Color-coded design helps healthcare professionals easily place leads onto the patient for quicker readings.
Helps ensure that patients are protected against cross contamination
The ability of both motile and non-motile microorganisms to migrate along ECG lead wires indicates a potential novel role of bacterial contamination on ECG leads in the development of HAIs (data on file).
Our patient to monitor system alleviates the need to plug into a reusable cable that can still harbor mobile pathogens.
Lightweight, Peelable Fully Shielded Ribbon Cable
Provides accurate ECG reading and tailors to the size of the patient
With our peelable fully shielded ribbon cable, we are able to customize to the size of the patient and provide accurate ECG reading.
Dual Connect Design
Assist with seamless transition from bedside to telemetry monitors utilizing dual connect product
Patient-to-monitor system can transition with the patient from department to department whether the patient is receiving bedside or telemetry monitoring with our patented dual connect design.
Help promotes continuous ECG monitoring and ease of transition within and between areas of care
Kendall DL™ connects to most monitors within a healthcare system, helping to improve patient flow and to promote standardization.
Through our adapter model, we help save nurses’ time from having to switch out different cables and leadwires for manufacturers’ monitors as patients move from one department to another.
