What is the MedLite ID Smart-Lite Solution?

MedLite ID is a simple-to-use, disposable Smart-Lite solution enabling clinicians to accurately and efficiently identify the single, Saline Safe infusion line in all light settingsAny patient with four or more IV lines, and the potential for an infusion Adverse Drug Event, can benefit from the MedLite ID solution.

  • ADE: Virtually eliminates infusion Adverse Drug Event IV line-tracing errors, potential accidental death, & associated lawsuits. Making this a “Never Event.”

  • COVID-19: Eliminates up to two hours of avoidable COVID exposure per twelve-hour shift (16-bed ICU). A multi-minute procedure can be done in less than 60 seconds; even if the infusion pump is outside the room using extension tubing to reduce COVID exposure.

  • Simple: 90 seconds to learn, 60 seconds to activate. Near-zero change to workflow and behavior.

  • Patented:  Actually, very well patented: #10589019, #10064991, #10722641, #10967116



Smart Lites Never Looked So Good

The team at MedLite believes they can “Lite the Way” and take adverse drug events to virtually zero, making it a “never event.” Their technology centers on a simple-to-use, disposable smart-lite solution that enables clinicians to accurately and efficiently identify the one Saline Safe line in all light settings. MedLite’s innovation to illuminate the primary medication line can virtually eliminate medication-infusion line-tracing errors, potential accidental death, and associated lawsuits. It also aims to reduce the exposure of healthcare professionals to COVID-19 by upwards of two hours per twelve-hour shift, which they are challenged with every day.

Quotes-ImageI liked that I could use it to identify the line I needed from the other side of the bed and had quicker access that way.  Quicker access and detection of line in an emergent situation. When you have a lot of different meds running on a patient, it made it so easy to identify.”

What are the Benefits of Medlite ID?

MedLite ID Smart-Lites Can Convert $2200 per day in projected infusion ADE loss to $1500 per day in savings

  • At 153 infusion ADEs per year per 100 beds, MedLite ID can convert $790K in estimated lost direct costs to $550K in savings, after paying for itself.

MedLite ID Smart-Lites Increased Patient Safety By 78%

  • In a MedLite study with Intermountain Health, we demonstrated a 78% increase in patient safety

  • Smart-Lites virtually eliminates the potential of infusion Adverse Drug Event errors

MedLite ID Smart-Lites Decreased Safe-Line Identification by 34%

  • In a MedLite study with DSU, we demonstrated a 34% decrease in the time to trace the IV safe line

  • MedLite ID expedites and lessens confusion during patient transports and shift changes

MedLite ID Smart-Lites Decreased Nursing Stress by 100%

  • In a MedLite study with Intermountain Health, 100% of nurse participants reported reduced stress in selecting the safe line

  • Immediately mitigates “infusion confusion” or “spaghetti syndrome” that occurs when IV lines get tangled or hidden by bedding or patient gowns

Life Without Infusion Confusion MedLite Makes it Possible

MedLite-Solutions-1-V2

What Would Tomorrow Look Like Without These Risks?

  • 2 hours avoidable COVID-19 exposure per 12-hour shift

  • 2x higher ADE risk for each ER patient admitted

  • 26% of ICU patients have a life-threatening ADE

  • 30% greater risk of adverse drug events with 10 additional lines after the first IV line (3% per line)

  • 19% nurse turnover rate in 2021

  • 80% of tape is tested positive for pathogens

  • $242,000 average payout for lawsuits related to drug interaction errors

  • $5.0M+ in average costs to hospitals for wrongful deaths

Without changes in how IV lines are differentiated, can hospitals avoid higher ADE risks for ER and ICU patients, reduce nursesexposure to COVID-19, and decrease accidental deaths and lawsuits?

How does MedLite ID work?

The following information is descriptive only, please consult MedLite ID Instructions for Use for comprehensive utilization information.

MedLite ID reduces the risk of infusion Adverse Drug Events, “infusion confusion,'  by providing lit indicators at the drip chamber, primary medication injection site, and the venous access catheter. By pressing any one of the three MedLite ID devices, all three light up for fifty seconds. Within seconds, MedLite ID improves patient care, optimizes efficiency, and reduces clinician stress.

  • Pull Battery Activation Tabs: from Smart-Lites (3) – Lites illuminate automatically & auto-pair to each other

  • Attach One Lite to Three Locations: Below the drip chamber, below the infusion pump (or the middle of IV line if gravity set), prior to the venous access catheter

  • Pressing Any Button: All three smart lites will activate (they will automatically turn off after 50 seconds).

Using MedLite with Pump in the Room & No Extension Tubing

1-  Gather and assemble your IV administration set & IV fluid, infusion pump, and MedLite ID system.

2-  Clamp MedLite ID smart-lites in three places on the safe line:

  • Just below the drip chamber
  • Just below the pump
  • Near the most distal port
3-  Spike bag, flush fluid, and insert tubing into pump

 

Using MedLite with Pump Outside the Room & Extension Tubing

1- Gather equipment: IV administration set, 2-3 straight extension sets (depending on how many you need to place the pump outside the room and manage changes without entering), and MedLite ID system

2-  Clamp MedLite ID smart-lites in three places on the safe line: 

  • Just below the drip chamber
  • Just below the pump
  • Near the most distal port

3-  Spike bag and flush IV fluid through tubing

4-  Connect extension set(s) and continue to flush through tubing to eliminate all air
5-  Connect to patient port
