|The StarMed range of respiratory hoods has been designed for both non-invasive ventilation (NIV) and CPAP therapy, providing an alternative patient interface to traditional masks.
The use of the hood interface helps to overcome many of the issues experienced with both endotracheal intubation and face mask use. It has been associated with increased patient comfort and improved NIV outcome, leading to reduced ventilation time and ICU length of stay.
Beside the clinical advantages of the respiratory hoods for treating respiratory diseases, owing to the semi-closed environment design and the virtually leak-free seal, the StarMed interface has been identified as an optimal tool for reducing the risk of cross infection.
