New laryngeal mask helps minimise trauma

Smiths Medical : 11 January, 2008  (New Product)
Smiths Medical has unveiled the Portex Soft Seal Laryngeal Mask that features the exclusive Soft Seal Cuff, which is less permeable to nitrous oxide than that of re-usable masks, reducing increase in pressure and minimising potential trauma.

- Clear tubing. Easy identification of correct placement
- Higher atrium contributes to a better seal
- Soft Seal cuff. Less permeable to nitrous oxide
- Atraumatic tip to reduce the risk of trauma
- No epiglottis bars. Aids the insertion of fibre optics and introducers
- 15mm connector
- Non-return valve.
- Printed pilot balloon.
- Integrated pilot line,
- Radio opaque Blue Line
