Successful non-invasive ventilation depends greatly on the patient’s comfort with the interface used to provide the therapy. Excessive pressure on the nose and air leaking into the eyes lead to discomfort. Discomfort leads to an unwillingness to tolerate the interface and ultimately intubation. Historically, clinicians in the PICU have had limited NIV interface options available to comfortably fit pediatric patients and avoid intubation.
The Artemis Pedi-Fit Full-Face and Nasal Masks from Solutions in Critical Care were designed to help clinicians right-fit pediatric CPAP and VPAP patients they haven’t been able to fit before.
- Two designs (full-face mask and nasal mask), each with four sizing options
- Soft, molded silicone material and flexible forehead ensure excellent seal and patient comfort
- A unique clip pivots the mask to conform to the patient’s nose, preventing air from leaking into their eyes
