“I have used the Airglove myself a few times and it worked well and I think it was particularly reassuring for the patients. They were anxious and had had problems with cannulation in the past”.
Ellie Andrews, Radiographer
South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
“I am really impressed after using the Airglove a few times, it definitely makes a difference to our attempts to cannulate patients.”
Cecelia Butters, Senior Sister
Victoria House Infusion Unit, Southampton General Hospital
“It does seem to work well though and I’ve been spreading the word through other departments who might also benefit from it.”We no longer use buckets of warm water in oncology at Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust as our patients request Airglove now as they prefer it. With a 87.5% success rate in our patient service evaluation I can see the results which make our lives so much easier too”
Keli Tomlin, Macmillan Chemotherapy Unit Manager
“Our Airgloves have been well and truly used, especially during our cold snap. We have found this a very useful device and we have recommended to other departments who may benefit from this.”
Elaine Renwick, Technical Service Manager
West of Scotland PET Centre, Gartnavel Hospital, Glasgow
“We have managed to trial the Airglove system for a week with our night nurse practitioners who have given a very favourable report for the unit and see it as something they would find beneficial to have available for use. The feedback from the team members that used it were very positive and in the absence to help us insert difficult cannulas we found it very useful.”
