Accutron, part of Crosstex International, itself part of Cantel Medical based in Hauppauge, NY, recently unveiled its new AXESS nitrous oxide/oxygen nasal sedation mask.
The device is designed to optimize comfort, minimize anxiety particularly in children, reduce opportunities for displacement, and allow for easy access to the mouth for dental and orthodontic procedures. It’s lightweight and stays out of the way of the eyes, as well as the nostrils as it doesn’t have any protruding nipples within its interior.
It works with a reusable scavenging circuit that sucks up unused gas and recycles it automatically without blowing toward the clinical staff. The scavenging circuit can and should be processed after each use using steam sterilization.
It’s available in three sizes, the smallest being for kids that has the option of having a bubble gum or mint scent.
