EcoAnaesthesia Facemask Versus Standard Facemask During Anesthesia Induction

2014-08-27 03:14:34 | BioPortfolio


This study will evaluate the efficiency of the EcoAnesthesia mask and its advantages over the standard facemask used in our practice. The satisfaction by the anesthesia provider and its ease of use may change the standard practice in airway management. In addition to these additional effects on patient safety, the facemask is affordable and may reduce the environmental burden of anesthesia waste.

Satisfaction with Facial Appearance and Quality of Life after Treatment of Face Scars with a Transparent Facial Pressure Mask.

Treatment of facial hypertrophic scars and deformities has developed from the use of elastic fabric hoods to transparent facemasks. The clinical effects of these masks have been described. However, th...

THRIVE and facemask condensation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.

Transfer from pediatric to adult care.

A trypanosome found in the blood of adult rats and transmitted by the rat flea. It is generally non-pathogenic in adult rats but can cause lethal infection in suckling rats.

A condition in which there is a change of one adult cell type to another similar adult cell type.

Aggressive T-Cell malignancy with adult onset, caused by HUMAN T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1. It is endemic in Japan, the Caribbean basin, Southeastern United States, Hawaii, and parts of Central and South America and sub-Saharan Africa.
