Disposable breastfeeding products - Solutions for every hospital and every situation
Medela’s aligned range of products and services aims to ensure the best support for the hospital, mother and infant. We understand that each hospital’s situation is unique and have expanded our range of disposable products to support each customer as needed. The company now offers a complete and comprehensive range of disposable products that are available as both Ready-to-Use and sterile versions. They are intended for single or one-day use in hospitals, without any need for cleaning prior to first use – which saves time and costs.
Improve hospital efficiency with Medela’s new range of disposable products
With its disposable product range, Medela greatly simplifies the daily routine involved in breastfeeding and allows hospitals to improve process efficiency by eliminating the need for cleaning prior to first use. In order to provide tailored solutions for every hospital and situation, products are available as both Ready-to-Use and sterile versions.
Medela’s Ready-to-Use products are a hygienically safe (German Consulting Centre for Hospital Epidemiology and Infection Control, 2014) and cost-effective disposable product option for all markets where the use of a non-sterile product is allowed according to local guidelines or regulations. They have been approved for sick infants, preterm infants, term infants and their mothers (German Consulting Centre for Hospital Epidemiology and Infection Control, 2014) and can be used without prior cleaning.
