Expands Respiratory Offering
Teleflex Medical recently issued a press release announcing the launch of an innovative interface for non-invasive ventilation (NIV), designed to help patients breathe easier. According to the press release, the Nasal-Aire II Critical Care patient interface is a single patient use, disposable device intended for use in the hospital and other critical care settings for the administration of non-invasive ventilation. The new device comes with a unique, patented nosepiece that seals on the inside of the nose, rather than being compressed against it. According to Teleflex, this design renders obsolete the bulky headgear required to achieve a seal with traditional NIV patient interfaces, eliminating pressure on the face and bridge of the nose. This patient-friendlydevice also allows the user to converse, eat, drink and wear glasses while receiving therapy, actions which are often hindered by other NIV mask options. Nasal-Aire is a registered trademark of Innomed Technologies, Inc.
