Transflux will deliver contrast media from a reservoir to the patient with the need to only change the tubing in closest proximity to the patient. i.e. the CT patient line. It incorporates a safety zone and two one-way valves in the patient line to permit the delivery system and the vein to be flushed, the blood reflux to be controlled and the contrast media to be subsequently injected.
The system avoids the need to change power syringes for each patient procedure by eliminating the risk of contamination of the syringes. The benefit is a considerable reduction in cost and time without the risk of contamination and with the advantage of the management of blood reflux (avoiding extravasations).
Study on the Microbial Safety of an Infusion Set for Contrast-Enhanced Imaging
Conducted by the University of Leuven, Belgium, which concluded, “This study proves the convincing advantage of using the Transflux patient-delivery system in terms of microbial safety and cost-benefits. This system allows safe multiple use of the automatic injector system for several patients without risk of contamination and extravasation but with improved clinical efficiency. In addition, it reduces unnecessary waste of contrast media with each patient procedure and of the costly automatic injector systems.”
Transflux at King’s College Hospital - a follow up report after two years use
The two CT scanning suites at King’s examine more than 90,000 patients every year and the Transflux system has continued to meet expectations. Contrast usage has been significantly reduced, with virtually no wastage and a dose per patient reduced to at least 75% of that delivered by traditional methods.
The resultant cost saving on consumables has been estimated at £46,000 per year. This money has been used to enhance the patient experience.
An unexpected bonus is that the radiographers overwhelmingly prefer Transflux because patient prep is much faster and fuss free compared to the repeated exchange of syringes for each new patient.
Being a large London Teaching Hospital there is a significant number of staff rotating through CT and with this in mind the system has proved safe to use with no incidents of any cross infection.
