medGadget: â€œTypenex Medical, a Chicago, Illinois company, has created a solution that pretty much eliminates the possibility for errors. The system utilizes a combination lock on the blood bag that will only open using a code printed on the patientâ€™s armband. If a clinician accidentally attempts to open the bag using another patientâ€™s code, it will stay closed and the transfusion will not happen.â€ â€“ Simple, yet effective. Interesting concept, no?
The product is called FinalCheck.
