Qimono the complete closed system for safe delivery of cytotoxic drugs

Stay safe with Qimono

It is widely documented that exposure to Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy (SACT), can pose a significant health risk to patients during treatment as well as healthcare workers involved in the preparation and administration of the drugs .

Many SACT agents are known to be carcinogenic, teratogenic and mutagenic. Exposure may be through skin contact, skin absorption, inhalation of aerosols and drug particles as well as ingestion and needlestick injuries. This can occur at various points of the treatment process: during the preparation of the medication, whilst the drugs are administered and after therapy .

Adverse health effects reported by chemotherapy nurses include headaches, dizziness, nausea and hair loss.

QimoOctopus with Qimo Female and Qimo Male is a multi-purpose catheter accessory, a double lumen IV extension tube with needleless connectors allowing intermittent injections or continuous infusions of fluids or medications.
IV extension tube in flexible, transparent polyurethane tubing with a low priming volume.
One lumen of QimoOctopus is fitted with a non-return valve, the other lumen is fitted with a Qimo Female connector.
