The Curaplex Panoramic Oxygen Mask® (POM®) is a versatile multi-port capnography mask that allows most types of scopes, probes and tubes to be inserted through the mask and enter the nose or mouth while maintaining a high percentage of oxygen delivered to the patient. It maximizes oxygen delivery and provides end tidal capnography monitoring for increased patient safety.
Convenience without compromise
Patients are subject to increased risk for hypoxia during gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures.1 During induced sedation, most patients suffer compromised oxygen saturation, and in some cases, diminished oxygen saturation levels are so significant that hypoxia or hypercapnia may follow. Supplemental oxygenation during these procedures has proven to be the most successful method for preventing hypoxia in gastrointestinal endoscopy.2
The POM can be utilized as a universal multi-function device:
A recent study revealed that the Panoramic Oxygen Mask (POM) supplied a higher oxygen percentage to patients under conscious sedation during endoscopic procedures than a nasal cannula with end-tidal gas monitoring.3
Enhanced patient safety
The POM provides accurate EtCo2 readings, allowing clinicians to intervene proactively in real time, while providing nearly twice the Fi02 of standard EtCo2 cannulas, reducing the risk of hypoxia during gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures.3
Single device, two styles
The POM can easily be changed from a high concentration mask to a medium concentration mask depending on the need. There is a universal size inlet for the removal or insertion of high concentration and medium concentration adaptors.
The POM allows for an unobstructed, 360 degree view of the area behind the mask and optimal access to the patient.
There are two anatomically-placed modifiable membranes (entry points) on the POM, providing optimal access to the patient. The anatomically placed entry points are easily modified to accommodate the clinician’s device of choice.
