They are not charging for the sanitizer itself and groups that request it typically just have to pay to ship. However, for local municipalities or healthcare/hospital facilities that need a pellet, they are covering the shipping cost. The process is below as it is now pretty streamlined and it shows what information will need. The containers are 1 gallon and come 4 bottles per case and 36 cases per pallet for a total of 144 gallons. As a reminder, this sanitizer is liquid-based so it does come out pretty fast vs. the gel sanitizer that a lot are used to.

All Hazards Consortium (AHC) new PPE Exchange

This is a new PPE Exchange to link suppliers with buyers that was built by the All Hazards Consortium (AHC) with input from the public and private sectors.  The PPE sourced includes face masks, respirators, face shields, gloves, goggles, gowns, sanitizers, dispensers, thermometers, wipes, etc.  Supply and quantities are not listed as available unless they are stateside and ready for distribution upon purchase.
 
Today the AHC’s new unique PPE Exchange goes live with its first Pilot Program launch to 300 industry organizations.
Over 25 organizations have been involved in the rapid development of this solution that creates a safer, faster and more cost effective PPE Sourcing environment for sourcing that any service of its kind in the U.S.  The exchange can be accessed at www.ppenearme.org.
This solution leverages an “Uber-like” technology that quickly matches PPE buyers and suppliers within minutes instead of days,
The current pilot is open to industry and government users seeking to purchase PPE supplies.
In the near future, this PPE Exchange will be leveraged to source any resource quickly including commercial generators, fuel distributors, dry ice, commercial facilities, almost any emergency resource that could be needed when local supplies are gone as typically happens during a big disaster.

Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Nasal High Flow Therapy – WHO & NIH Recommended for the COVID-19 patient

Fisher and Paykel Healthcare is a global leader in the manufacture of Heated Wire Ventilator Circuits and Nasal High Flow Therapy devices.  As the COVID-19 pandemic has developed, nasal high flow (also HFNC, HFOT, high flow etc.) has increasingly become relied on as an early intervention for escalating patients.  Nationally, the medical community are deploying Nasal High Flow therapy intentionally to reduce the risk of intubation and  improve overall patient outcomes within the hospitalized COVID-19 patient population.  This evolving practice is recommended by the WHO and NIH for the treatment of COVID patients and recent observational studies have demonstrated 50-70% avoidance in mechanical ventilation and a decreased length of hospital stay.

A number of states and agencies have been in contact with Fisher and Paykel Healthcare about its products for potential stockpiles. Should any state or agency have an interest in procuring nasal high flow devices in the coming months, the team at Fisher & Paykel would welcome a discussion to ensure it is best placed to provide the State with access to product in a timely manner to treat patients. As Nasal High Flow is a relatively new therapy, Fisher & Paykel is also conscious of ensuring that the relevant clinical advisors are briefed on the requirements for delivering the therapy effectively.   All Fisher & Paykel medical devices and associated disposables are FDA approved.
