Conference Will Educate Operating Room Personnel About Safety and Environmental Advantages of STREAMWAY System
LAS VEGAS, Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Skyline Medical Inc. (OTCQB: SKLN) (the "Company"), formerly BioDrain Medical, producer of the FDA-approved STREAMWAY System for automated, direct-to-drain surgical fluid disposal, today announced they will be exhibiting their technology at the OR Excellence Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 24 – October 25.
The OR Excellence Conference is an interactive meeting for surgical facility leaders sponsored by Outpatient Surgery Magazine. Now in its fifth year, OR Excellence facilitates networking among colleagues, speakers and vendors, and helps educate conference attendees about the importance of protecting patients and employees, succeeding economically and positioning facilities for the future.
"This year, the STREAMWAY System has gone a long way to replace a competitor's product which was recently recalled for safety issues. To date, we have had numerous installations in operating rooms, hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers throughout the United States and the STREAMWAY technology has been very well received," said Josh Kornberg, Chief Executive Officer at Skyline Medical.
Kornberg continued, "We agree with the conference's focus on the value of educating operating room personnel on the importance of safety for both themselves and their patients. As such, we look forward to having discussions with the show's attendees about how the STREAMWAY System does just that by reducing healthcare workers' exposure to potentially hazardous materials and ultimately helping facilities become more efficient and environmentally friendly."
The FDA-approved STREAMWAY System is designed to improve safety and efficiency in the operating room by effectively managing surgical fluid waste disposal with its direct-to-drain technology. The STREAMWAY System virtually eliminates operating room workers' exposure to blood, irrigation fluid and other potentially infectious fluids found in the surgical environment while dramatically decreasing costs to dispose of surgical waste. The STREAMWAY System is a stationary system designed to be installed into each surgical room that is hooked into a hospital's existing drain and vacuum system.
Skyline Medical is a corporate sponsor of the conference and will be exhibiting at Booth 216.

About Skyline Medical Inc.
Skyline Medical Inc. produces a fully automated, patented, FDA cleared, surgical fluid disposal system that virtually eliminates operating room workers' exposure to blood, irrigation fluid and other potentially infectious fluids found in the surgical environment. Today's manual surgical fluid handling methods of hand-carrying filled surgical fluid canisters and emptying these canisters is an exposure risk and is not an optimal approach to the handling of surgical fluid waste. Skyline Medical's STREAMWAY System fully automates the collection, measurement and disposal of surgical fluids and is designed to result in: 1) reducing overhead costs to hospitals and surgical centers, 2) improving Occupational State and Health Association (OSHA) and other regulatory compliance agencies' safety concerns, and 3) streamlining the efficiency of the operating room (and thereby making surgeries more profitable).
Skyline Medical's STREAMWAY System is eco-friendly as it contributes to cleaning up the environment. Currently, approximately 50 million bloody, potentially disease infected canisters go to landfills annually in the United States. These tainted canisters can remain in landfills for years to come. With the installation of Skyline Medical's STREAMWAY System, the number of canisters can be significantly reduced. Skyline Medical Inc.'s STREAMWAY System is designed to make the operating room and our environment safer, cleaner, and better. Skyline Medical products are currently being represented by independent professional sales representatives that cater to the needs of hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers across the country.
