The Safety and Reliability of our Cold Plasma

Is our cold plasma safe?

 

Yes!

 

As you can see from the photo, our Adtec technician demonstrates touching the cold plasma jet.

 

An extensive list of practical tests and experiments were conducted during our first stage, pre clinical studies and ongoing post-market studies. This allowed us to carefully develop a cold plasma medical device that could bring all the antibacterial benefits but at the same time remain painless and contact-free so that it could be well tolerated in patient treatments. We were after all the first company worldwide to introduce cold plasma treatment on wounds demonstrated in our clinical trials.

 

As cold plasma can be generated through a variety of ways, they are also dependent on the plasma source design and surrounding environment. The components of plasma include reactive oxygen and nitrogen species and UV that need to be controlled to ensure they are within safe levels for medical use. Some plasma devices may also deliver fluctuating inconsistent cold plasma output as they are sensitive to changes in humidity and temperature in the treatment room. This may often result in undesirable side effects.

 

Because the Adtec SteriPlas is a low energy, microwave-powered, cold atmospheric argon plasma medical device this means its safety remains the main priority in line with delivering repeatable and successful results. It is also the reason why we are proud to state our medical device has NO side effects associated to it.


Our patented 6 electrode Cold Plasma Torch

The Adtec SteriPlas features a patented 6 electrode cold plasma torch. It’s proven efficacy for the destruction of all forms of bacteria including multi-resistant bugs makes it an alternative to antibiotic therapy for the treatment of wounds, surgical site infections and medical dermatology skin conditions. This is due to the unique physical mode of action delivered with our cold plasma as opposed to the chemical mode of action demonstrated with antibiotics. Broader studies have shown that antimicrobial resistance is unlikely to be generated with cold plasma treatment because of this.

 

A huge collection of our peer reviewed publications documents the clinical efficacy and safety of our medical device across a broad range of conditions including diabetic foot ulcers, left ventricular assist device (LVAD) infections, deep sternal wound infections, actinic keratoses and acne.

We hope to see you at either of these conferences and as always, we will have our flagship medical device, the Adtec SteriPlas, on demonstration ready for you to test and to see all the benefits linked to our cold plasma strengths for wounds, surgical site infections and medical dermatology.

 

 

 

 


Seasons Greetings from Adtec Healthcare

Seasons Greetings to everyone!

 

During this season, we take time to reflect upon the good things we have… like our partnership with you. We value each and every one of our customers, suppliers and partners and cannot express our gratitude enough for your ongoing support. We appreciate working with you and hope that the holidays and the coming year will bring you happiness and success.


Deep Sternal Wound Infections (DWSI) and the Adtec SteriPlas

Unlike other cold plasma medical devices currently present on the market, the Adtec SteriPlas is not limited to the treatment of superficial wounds only.

 

For example, deep sternal wound infections (DSWIs) are a potentially devastating complication of median sternotomy performed in cardiac surgery. These large wound cavities are prone to infections and there is a concerningly high morbidity and mortality rate associated to these patients. The use of conventional therapies alone has shown to not always be successful and expensive muscle flap surgery is usually required.

 

The large 12cm2 treatment area of the Adtec SteriPlas covers a greater surface area of the wound compared to its competitors. This allows the benefit of a quick 2 minute treatment time for every 12cm2 covered. Because of its propulsion towards the treatment site, the cold plasma components work quickly to defeat bacteria and allow the management of the infection. The use of the Adtec SteriPlas has shown to accelerate healing rates and prevent the need for expensive surgery options that would otherwise have been needed.

 

It has been praised as a lifesaving medical device and is now widely used across multiple hospitals for the management of DWSIs.

 


Quick results achieved with the Adtec SteriPlas

How often do LVAD patients with infection need treatment with the Adtec SteriPlas?

 

We recommend a minimum treatment of twice per week. This applies to both outpatients in day clinics and inpatients who have been admitted into the wards.

 

The treatment time itself is as quick as 3 minutes. During these short minutes, the components of cold plasma quickly bombard the cellular structure of bacteria to create micropores which allows access to the microbial DNA for total destruction. This applies to all forms of bacteria regardless of their resistance profile or if they are protected within biofilm.

 

How quick have patients with LVAD infections healed?

 

Our clinical evidence has shown patients have healed in as quick of two weeks of treatment. These are patients who have failed previous therapeutic attempts with conventional treatment methods.


Promising, consistent and reliable results achieved with the Adtec SteriPlas

 

Whilst Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have become essential mechanical pumps for patients who have had end stage heart failures, they are also prone to infections especially with the presence of biofilm that complicates treatment options. Cardiologists often rely on conventional antibiotic therapy but with rising antimicrobial resistance rates, they sometimes offer little to no help in achieving stabilisation.

The strong properties of the Adtec SteriPlas cold plasma has been proven to offer complete stabilisation of the LVAD system by destroying all forms of multi-resistant bacteria present, even if they are protected within biofilm. This is due to the unique cold plasma properties that can travel through the gaps around and down the driveline to reach the site of biofilm. This area would normally have been difficult to treat with conventional therapies such as antimicrobial dressings as they are hard to reach, but the Adtec SteriPlas has shown to travel to these sites with ease due to its remarkable antibacterial gaseous properties.
