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.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Health Services Research

A new appliance will be used to transfer the tongue force during its physiological activity to advance the nasomaxillary complex; this method will be compared with the traditional method w...
Healthy volunteers will be exposed to ambient air near a roadway under the conditions of with and without a facemask and their responses will be evaluated.
The Tao Mask is a new novel facemask for positive pressure ventilation which has recently been demonstrated (MUSC study Pro00047645) to have superior performance to our conventional (stand...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the impedance threshold device (ITD) attached to a facemask can increase blood pressure in patients who present to the emergency department wit...
Carbon monoxide (CO) has been called a "silent killer", and those patients who survive CO poisoning are at risk of neurological damage, which may be permanent. CO is a leading cause of uni...
Transnasal humidified rapid-insufflation ventilatory exchange (THRIVE) vs. facemask breathing pre-oxygenation for rapid sequence induction in adults: a prospective randomised non-blinded clinical trial.
Transnasal humidified rapid-insufflation ventilatory exchange (THRIVE) can prolong apnoea time in adults. Therefore, THRIVE used for pre-oxygenation in rapid sequence induction of anaesthesia could ex...
This study explored the use of high-flow nasal oxygen (HFNO) in both pre-oxygenation and apnoeic oxygenation in adults who were intubated following a non-rapid sequence induction. Fifty patients were ...
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...
We evaluated if the sitting or supine positions affect anxiety levels induced by the application of a facemask in children.
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.
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
