CFO, Doug Pearson, and IT Director, Scott Jewell, present a check to Pamela Gray, Regional Corporate/Foundation Philanthropy Officer for the American Red Cross in the amount of $10,070.00. Employees raised $5,035.00 for disaster relief for the victims of the three hurricanes that hit the Southeastern US and Caribbean and an Earthquake that hit Central Mexico. Westmed matched the funds they raised dollar for dollar.
During the presentation Pamela Gray shared many of the ways the Red Cross is assisting the disaster victims with Immediate needs assistance such as shelter, food, medical assistance, and contacts for families; Intermediate needs assistance for such things as prescriptions, clothing, and personal items; and Long-term assistance such as they are needing in Puerto Rico where clean water and food are still in short supply.
75 people from Westmed donated to our disaster relief fund. Representing them in the presentation of the check to the American Red Cross are: Back Row: Ray Byas, Scott Jewell, Julian Suaso, Leroy Wilson, Front Row: Mike McCarty, Doug Pearson, Mary Nelson, Sylvia Merino, Sue Shine, Diane Garcia-Ysmael, Gaudelia Gavino, and Dora Perez-Villavelazquez.

Muc-Away™ Nasal Aspiration Device
The Muc-Away™ Nasal Aspiration Device is a simple, safe and noninvasive way to clear nasal passages in neonates. Unlike other nasal suction devices, the Muc-Away™ features a transparent tip and tubing to enable easy visualization of aspirated fluids for greater confidence in neonatal care. Designed for a comfortable fit without irritation, the Muc-Away™ Soft Tip creates a gentle seal in the nares to protect the fragile nasal mucosa.
PulmoSal 7% is indicated for the induction of sputum. It is formulated to match the natural physiologic pH of the airway surface liquid (ASL) @ ±7.4. PulmoSal is unique among hypertonic saline inhalation products: it is the only FDA-cleared sodium chloride inhalation solution that is buffered with sodium bicarbonate to a pH of 7.4. Pseudomonas aeruginosa has an affinity to colonize in an acidic pH of ~6.0. A recent study has shown a reduction in Pseudomonas aeruginosa CFU count with PulmoSal 7% (pH+) compared to other, acidic, hypertonic saline inhalation solutions.
Improve Your Lung Function with Westmed.
A simple tri-fold pamphlet you can take to your doctor.
Ask your doctor about the The Complete Pulmonary Hygiene Triad from Westmed. Westmed facilitates using 3 innovative technologies and solutions to help you clear your airways and enhance lung function.
From the revolutionary Vibralung® Acoustical Percussor, to the advanced performance of the Circulaire® II Drug Delivery System, to PulmoSal,™ the only Bio-Balanced™ hypertonic saline solution cleared by the FDA for inhalation, Westmed offers a complete collection of pulmonary hygiene therapies to deliver respiratory medications, induce sputum and clear your lungs.
The Pressure Safe High Flow Cannula is designed to mitigate high pressure changes that may cause barotrauma conditions. A unique pressure-limiting Pop-Off feature prevents airway pressure from exceeding 21 cmH2O. The required pressure phases of high flow therapy are now clearly controlled and observed with Pressure Safe.
In addition, the patented Comfort Soft Plus® elastomeric formulation minimizes cannula friction on the patient’s skin. This produces a greater wear comfort and safeguards against epidermal stripping that can occur from traditional PVC cannulas and/or adhesive securement tape use.
The Vibralung Acoustical Percussor applies vibratory sound waves, during both inspiration and exhalation, over a wide range of frequencies (5 to 1,200 Hz) to vibrate the column of gas in the tracheobronchial tract. As a result, mucus is loosened and separated by sympathetic resonance throughout the airways to promote safe, effective and gentle ACT like no other alternative. The Vibralung can be used as either sole therapy, or adjunct therapy, depending upon the patient’s needs and response. It is lightweight, battery-powered and portable so it can go wherever the patient goes.
Now you can achieve the efficiency and positive effects of continuous nebulization therapy (CNT) with the advantages of enhanced delivery, less waste and greater protection. It all comes together in the new Hi- Flo MiniHEART Circulaire II Continuous Nebulizer, exclusively from Westmed. This unique combination of features makes the new Hi-Flo Mini- HEART Circulaire II Continuous Nebulizer the ideal choice in your ED.
