News regarding AseptiScope, the DiskCover System, and stethoscope contamination is increasingly visible in the clinical community. The prevalence of poor stethoscope hygiene and resultant contamination reveal significant gaps in infection prevention that the DiskCover System will help to address.
Clostridioides difficile (C. difficile) is a leading cause of healthcare associated infections in the USA, contributing to nearly 500,000 infections, 30,000 deaths, and $4.8B in annual excess acute care costs1 C. difficile is impervious to current standard-of-care cleaning with alcohol Study found zero growth of C. difficile inoculated stethoscopes protected with AseptiScope disk cover barriers…
Auscultations using professional stethoscopes with disk cover barriers from AseptiScope resulted in 100% diagnostic accuracy and no loss of sound amplitude Auscultations employing disposable stethoscopes produced an overall error rate of nearly 11% in clinical diagnosis Compared to disposable stethoscopes, disk cover barriers from AseptiScope are cost-effective, clinically superior, and physician-preferred January 11, 2021…
AseptiScope is a privately held company with funding and support from a network of investors. The organization is strategically positioned to introduce novel and innovative technology aimed at Infection Prevention for Clinician & Patient. Its flagship product takes aim at healthcare-associated infections, specifically stethoscope contamination, and the significant risks to patients, healthcare workers, and healthcare systems. The company’s DiskCover System is technology that disrupts the traditional patient examination by stethoscope with a highly visible and effective infection barrier – filling a technology gap that is widened by the COVID-19 pandemic. There is currently no other automated, touch-free, and clinically proven system available to the healthcare community.
