Transporting patients with critical ailments is a big challenge. One of the major problems is these patients have multiple IV lines. Also, you have to carry along a myriad of infusion pumps, pressure monitors, drains, chest tubes, etc.

Now, Medovex corporation, a medical technology company, has introduced new equipment called Streamline IV Suspension System, or ISS, to simplify the transport. According to the company, the new medical technology converts a free standing IV poll into a bed attachment with a click of a button.

The system ensures the safety and efficiency for both patients and caregivers in the hospital setting. With the help of the system, caregivers can handle the growing amount of patient equipment that remains with patients as they move about a hospital.

Current methods of intra-hospital transportation are complicated and need cumbersome handling and control of patient beds and mobile IV stands during the transport process. It's during these transports that patient care can be compromised.

Studies show that approximately 100,000 ICU beds and patients are transported within the hospital at least 40,000 times in the U.S. According the Critical Care Medicine, the third leading cause of death in the U.S. is attributed to medical errors, mistakes or accidents.
