WaterPAP® Canister Bracket Gets a Makeover

Airways Development LLC has expanded their Bubble CPAP product line, WaterPAP®, with an upgraded accessory, the Bracket with Tube Guide. WaterPAP® is a device used by respiratory therapists, doctors and nurses to generate positive airway pressure in neonatal patients. The differences between the new Bracket with Tube Guide and the original Canister Bracket are the new bracket is taller and it has a semi-circle guide rail around the top which serves to hold the top of the tube to the outside wall of the canister.
The new Bracket with Tube Guide provides added usability in that it allows an easy way to secure the tubing to the back of the WaterPAP® Canister. By securing the tubing in this manner, the end that is under water is now positioned against the inner wall of the canister, directly behind the 0-10cm depth label. This ensures the tube is positioned in a consistent manner and the depth is visually clear and easy to read, even from greater distances.
When asked about what inspired them to design the new Bracket with Tube Guide, Airways’ Vice President Robert Landis said, “We recently learned of a few clinicians that used rubber bands to secure the tubing in a very similar manner, and thought that providing a ready-made way for clinicians to do this would have great benefit. Some NICU’s use hundreds of canisters a year, so we wanted to find a way for them to secure the tubing for this effect with a reusable product, as opposed to adding to their costs with more disposables.”
As with all of Airways Development’s products, WaterPAP® and its accessories are available exclusively through regional distributors nationwide.
