Deliver topical anesthetic to the nose, throat, hypopharynx, vocal cords, larynx and trachea prior to airway manipulation such as intubation, endoscopy, rhinoscopy and soft palate exam. The benefit is a reduced gag and sensation reduced pulse and blood pressure response to intubation.
- Atomize medication into a fine mist of particles 50-80 microns.
- 15Fr (4.7mm) tip x 6.5 inch (15cm) malleable, conformable tube for targeted deposition of medication.
- 5cc syringe is recommended for accurate dosing and proper pressure.
- Priming volume is 0.2ml.
- Use a 3ml syringe for a minimum forecast distance of 100mm upon exiting the sprayer tip under 25Kpa pressure to form an area of diameter of no less than 70mm.
"The device makes endoscopy work within the nasal cavity, soft palate, larynx and pharnyx much easier by distributing a fine mist of lidocaine or lidocaine/phenylephrine."
"We also use the device to distribute same mixture in hard to reach surgical areas such as otic canals, wound flaps, urogenital tracts, and to atomize topical local anesthetics and hemostatic agents to bleeding tumors and derm biopsy sites."
