WikiPouch® (formerly IP-Pouch) was formed to promote a very simple yet very effective product to help reduce nosocomial infections related to cannula & HHN usage. An invention by healthcare professional, Meredith Lloyd, our WikiPouch® reduces or eliminates the risk of cross-contamination to patients from the use of nasal cannulas, HHNs, and other respiratory devices during stays at medical facilities. The WikiPouch® is a replacement technology for plastic bags currently being used to store reuseable respiratory devices.
