A medicotechnical single-use device for maintenance of patent upper airways during moderate-to-deep sedation for short-term medical procedures

To reduce perceived discomfort in connection with various medical examinations and treatments, patients worldwide are offered and demand increasingly, both in and outside hospitals, procedural sedation (PS). PS involves low doses of fast and short-acting sedative medications administered directly into the bloodstream to achieve a well-controlled state of drowsiness or superficial sleep enabling clinicians to perform unpleasant examinations or treatment.
