Recently I heard of this “Medical Mystery” on an NPR “Morning Edition” broadcast. My ears perked up when I heard the words “hospital pneumatic systems.” Apparently hospital pneumatic systems have a problem to solve; until we learn to beam up blood samples from one end of the hospital to the other, we need to reduce damage to the blood sample.
Fortunately for us, this is not our problem. We do not design systems, just the tubing. Busada tubing is used for not only hospital systems, but banking pneumatic transfer systems. You can follow this story on an excellent blog.
So, iPhones took a ride in a pneumatic system. Did you know that the Delta Rhythm Boys sang about iPhones in 1949? That is true prophesy.
And to the right, our tubing has made it into Martha Jefferson Hospital in the rehab floor in orthopedics.
