ARC Medical, Inc. was founded in 1990 by Hal Norris and the company is committed to providing the anesthesia, ICU, Long Term Acute Care and Emergency areas of hospitals and Same Day Surgery Centers with safe and effective products with emphasis on quality. Outside the hospital arena, we provide excellent products for patients in Home Care.
The initial product introduced is the highest performing Hygroscopic Condensing Humidifier (HME), the ThermoFlo™ System, available anywhere in the world. The introduction of these devices for the ICU and LTAC usage revolutionized the delivery of humidification to the ventilator dependent patient. Our ThermoFlo™ Trach products provide excellent humidification to the patients in Home Care. Trach products are available with a suction / Cough Relief Valve as well as supplemental O2 port.
In 2009 circuitGuard® was cleared by the FDA under 510(k) K090738. The indications for use (IFU) allowed for the multiple patient use of the anesthesia breathing circuit, a protocol used in Western Europe since the 1980s. ARC has successfully converted facilities to this protocol and those facilities have passed inspection by all of the accreditation agencies.
