air tube application for medication - Telecom Tube Systems

Send and receive medication fast, efficient and safe

In order to ensure the safety of patients, medicines need to be at the right place, at the right time, in the right quantity and the right condition. This is a code of conduct that is maintained in hospitals all over the world. Since patients rely on their remedies, it is vital that a medical center does everything in its power to ensure the safe handling of medicines. 

Telecom Tubesystems is specialized in the development, installation, and maintenance of air tube applications for hospitals. To enable doctors, surgeons and other hospital staff to do their job in the best possible way, Telecom has a suitable air tube application for every situation. When a nurse wants to send a medication two floors up, this can be done by pushing one simple button, no errands means no valuable time wasted.

At the send station, a user or robot fills the station from above, which in turn fills the open carrier and sends it to a distribution point. At the receiving station, the carrier drops the medicines in a soft delivery area and goes back automatically. Needless to say, our solutions can save a lot of time and can speed up your logistic process which will lead to better results and more satisfied staff members and clients.

A well-designed and balanced system will save the hospital a substantial amount of money, year after year. However, specifying a air tube application , or collecting the requirements for a system, is not easy without experience and a structured approach. Working with Telecom and their local Certified Dealers means you take advantage of more than 40 year experience in designing and installing systems especially for hospitals. We understand your organization processes and internal logistics.

an air tube application: How does it work?

Hospital environments are known to be dynamic, run by fast-paced personnel with the best patient care in mind. Therefore, in order to keep up with this environment, tube transportation systems need to be, as mentioned above: reliable, safe and quick. But how does the tube system work?

  1. First of all, a pneumatic tube system consists of a network of tubes connected via several stations such as transfer- or receivingstations.
  2. At these stations several carriers are made available for all hospital staff, such as doctors or nurses. These carriers can be used to send and receive medicines securely, efficient noiseless and above all accurate.
  3. These carriers are located at the stations, which are situated in carefully chosen, strategic locations inside the medical center, for example: the laboratory, pharmacy, surgery room or clinic.

For example: When a nurse has the medication she wants to send to the doctor who is on call, two floors up. The nurse places the aid inside the carrier and places the carrier inside the sending station. Next, the nurse enters the desired location of the drug and presses send. Now the fully automated tube system takes over: using air to transport the carrier all the way up to the 4th floor in a matter of seconds. Saving the nurse a trip to the 4th floor while minimizing the risk of contamination of the remedies.
