P3 Medical - Bringing innovative medical devices to life

Airway management is a vital part of emergency medical practice, helping to maintain or restore ventilation in patients undergoing general anaesthesia and those with respiratory failure or acute airway obstruction.

Advanced techniques require the use of specialised medical equipment including laryngeal masks, tracheal intubation, or surgical methods, dependent on the severity of the patient condition alongside factors such as environment and clinician skill.

Tracheal intubation of patients with coronavirus, for instance, is a potentially aerosol-generating procedure that requires a careful approach, as rapid viral transmission remains a major concern for both patients and healthcare providers.

The last two decades have brought vast change in the science and technology behind airway management. Specialising in the manufacture of single-use products in the areas of anaesthesia and airway management and general surgery, British-based manufacturer P3 Medical works together with healthcare professionals to bring innovative, life-saving equipment to the medical devices market.

Adrian Javes, Sales Director, explains: “Airway management is one of the most significant tasks for anaesthesiologists, and clinicians have made a tremendous contribution to the way airway devices and techniques have evolved over the years. Combined with the advancement of technology, this has resulted in the creation of safer and more effective artificial airways to ensure safe ventilation for patients who undergo anaesthesia or other therapy.

“At P3 Medical, this is the cornerstone of what we aim to achieve. Our vision is to work closely with clinicians to develop cost-effective solutions which enhance hospital efficiency, patient care and overall safety in operating theatres

“Our UK facility enables us to work with innovative clinicians within the NHS and help to bring their ideas and designs to fruition.”

Established in 2001, P3 Medical Limited is a fast-growing company that specialises in the design, manufacture and marketing of innovative medical devices for the global healthcare market.

The company’s headquarters are based in Bristol, which also doubles as the location of their manufacturing site, fully equipped with four modern cleanrooms. They have a further production and cleanroom facility in Preston in the North West of England.

In addition to marketing their own range, the company also acts as a UK distributor to a number of leading medical device manufacturers, helping to bring innovative products of high quality and value to the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and private hospitals.

 

Originally founded as Promedica, the company was renamed P3 following the acquisition of Amba and Phoenix in 2006. They have recently experienced a period of rapid growth.

 

Growth and development

 

To strengthen the business, P3 Medical acquired Stericom Ltd in 2018 – which became the company’s first move into the Urology and Coloproctology market. 

 

More recently, the British-based manufacturer launched a novel airway device designed by clinicians from the Cleveland Clinic, called the MK Intubating Airway. The device improves upon long‐standing airways, with the addition of an articulating channel and a bite block permitting it to be removed from a bronchoscope without disrupting the placement of an endotracheal tube – a complication that can jeopardize the procedure and patient safety. Since then, they have taken part in ABHI’s mission to Texas to grow their presence across the US.

 

In addition, the company has recently signed a distribution deal with Construct Medical, who have worked with clinicians from Australia to develop their innovative FlexTip bougie, designed with unique features to make navigation of difficult airways easier while reducing the risk of tracheal trauma.

 

Today the company exports to over 60 countries.

 

Novel device manufacturer

 

P3 Medical is a manufacturer of pioneering medical devices. This includes theatre disposables and surgical accessories, as well as a range of novel airway management devices such as laryngeal masks and patented endotracheal tubes designed to make intubation faster and safer.

All P3 medical devices comply with the requirements of the Medical Device Directive and the company operates a quality management system to ISO9001 and ISO13485.

As an OEM contract manufacturer, P3’s manufacturing capabilities include extrusion, injection moulding, welding, and cleanroom assembly.
