The Cost-Effectiveness of Qualiteam’s Sternum and Thorax Supports for Frail Patients After Cardiac Surgery
Like many advanced medical procedures, cardiac surgery is costly. Ranging from the anesthetic, in-theater, sterilization, and even postoperative care. Surprisingly, out of all these stages, it’s actually the postoperative phase that can become the most burdensome. During this period, patients often experience complications that require additional surgical and medical care. Unfortunately, older and more frail individuals are particularly at risk and may require additional support during their recovery.
In this presentation we review the clinical evidence for using traditional abdominal binders and present a radical new design which will make binders more comfortable and effective.
