The Nellcor™ pulse oximetry sustainability program offers four different programs, giving you the flexibility to choose the right mix of services to meet your needs — without compromising the quality of patient care.
No matter which program you participate in, you’ll have the potential to save significant costs and help reduce your hospital’s environmental footprint — without sacrificing pulse oximetry sensor integrity or performance.
The Nellcor™ Pulse Oximetry Sustainability Program benefits your hospital in multiple ways. When you take advantage of our programs, you'll save money. Because our remanufactured sensors are manufactured to the same high quality specifications as new sensors, you'll ensure excellent patient care. And when you recycle sensors, you reduce your hospital's environmental footprint and decrease waste.
Participation is easy and requires only minimal effort on the part of your hospital.
If you’re using third-party reprocessed SpO2 sensors, you may not be getting what you expect. Medtronic put 160 sensors—originally manufactured by Medtronic and later reprocessed by Stryker—through the same tests we use for Medtronic-produced new and remanufactured Nellcor™ pulse oximetry sensors. The results may surprise you.
Remanufactured versus reprocessed: There is a difference.
†The Nellcor™ pulse oximetry sustainability program is only available in the United States.
