Hospital acquired infection control and management in hospitals

Infographic about hospital aquired infections

It’s a insidious problem. According to the CDC, on any given day, one in twenty-five hospital patients have at least one hospital acquired infection¹.

Hospital acquired infections (HAIs) are a significant concern. They can be localized or systemic, can involve any system of the body, and be associated with medical devices or blood product transfusions². Reducing hospital acquired infections across your enterprise can help improve patient population management in the ICU and extend your care resources.

Our critical care solutions provide the tools to help your care teams address hospital acquired infections.

Streamline workflow to help in managing HAI

Hospital acquired infections are more frequent when shared equipment is not properly cleaned. The latest thinking says, ‘don’t share it.’


  • A modular transport monitor stays with the patient
  • Single-patient use ECG leads, blood pressure cuffs, and Sp02 sensors are designed to last an entire patient stay
  • Taking a diagnostic 12-lead utilizing the patient monitor helps avoid moving equipment patient to patient
  • Using supplies that connect with most manufacturers' devices means fewer supply changes
  • Single-use NIV masks stay with patient and the clean clip shell offers a quick, docking spot when not in use

Adjust care rapidly to preempt HAI

Advanced algorithms and real time point-of-care analyses combine with advanced monitoring and respiratory care solutions to help you minimize infection opportunities.

  • Clinical decision support tools help identify criteria for severe sepsis
  • Spot-check bedside monitoring provides critical measurements
  • Automated message communications assists in delivering early warning signs to clinicians
  • NIV solution can be used to avoid endotracheal intubation and reduce the potential for ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP)


Work smarter with tools to support your infection control initiatives, respiratory weaning, and prompt recovery.

Address infection control in hospitals
