ISO-Gard® Oxygen Mask Provides Oxygen Delivery While Scavenging Exhaled Breath

WAYNE, PA — Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), a leading global provider of medical technologies, announced significant production expansion of the ISO-Gard® Mask, a product that supports patients and clinicians when oxygen assistance is required.

The expansion is in response to increased demand as healthcare professionals globally work to treat patients with respiratory needs.

Medical treatment often requires patient and caregiver to be in close proximity. Exhaled patient breath can present challenges. The ISO-Gard® Mask scavenges, or suctions away, patient exhaled breath from the breathing zone shared by clinicians and patients during care1.

The negative pressure design of this oxygen mask enables clinicians to deliver oxygen flows of up to 10 liters per minute while monitoring patient end-tidal CO2. This functionality uniquely supports delivery of oxygen to the patient, monitors effective breathing, and scavenges patient exhaled breath.

“Teleflex is committed to providing progressive technologies that enable healthcare providers to enhance patient and provider safety,” said Kevin Robinson, Vice President and General Manager of the Teleflex Anesthesia & Emergency Medicine Division.
