With nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation the next natural fit for AirTechniques, Inc, the company’s new FlowStarTouch and Analog made its debut at the Air Techniques booth February 22-24 during the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting. Attendees got an up-close look at these next-level nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation innovations.

Nitrous oxide/oxygen scavenging systems benefit from a high-quality vacuum system and can be administered safely within dental practices. AirTechniques—a pioneer in air compressors and vacuum systems since 1962, introduced its FlowStar Nitrous Flowmeters and components during the annual Chicago trade show.

FlowStar Touch is the company’s next generation of nitrous oxide sedation, designed to combine elegance with superior technology. The innovative flat touchscreen control fits perfectly with modern practice, the company states. The FlowStar Analog is built with high-quality, wear-resistant materials and filled with functions to provide value to users on a daily basis. The auto-compensating total flow rate is said to secure a balance between oxygen and nitrous gas when adjusting the N2O percentage, which in turn saves time and reduces costs.

The FlowStar Touch Package includes the FlowStar Touch; single-use nasal hoods, scavenging circuits and breathing bag; Gas Control System (GCS) including Bag-T, vacuum control, and oxygen outlet; and DISS piping and installation kit.

“As the most trusted name in dental equipment, Air Techniques continues to bring innovations to our community,” says Scott Borden, Air Techniques Vice President, North American Sales and Marketing, in a press release. “Our customers inspire us to deliver products that enhance clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction, and overall business profitability. FlowStar and VisionX are 2 modern examples of our technically advanced product offering, aimed at helping today’s dental professionals identify a clear choice when choosing systems for their practice.”

The FlowStar Touch is designed to provide a simple workflow and intuitive use. Features include an automatic fail-safe protection to shut off nitrous when there’s a loss of oxygen for patient safety; 18L total flow rate for treating patients with larger lung capacity; acoustic and visual information signals for patient safety; and integrated error and assessment memory; auto compensating feature to control total gas flow when adjustments are needed; and positioning of gas delivery and scavenging control for more flexible installations.

Chicago Midwinter Meeting attendees not only got to see the new FlowStar products this past week, but those who participated in demos of AirTechniques' VisionX Imaging Software were gifted Garrett Popcorn, a Chicago staple. VisionX powers the company’s ProVecta 3D Prime CBCT. This software is unique in its ability to allow implant planning in just 5 clicks, thanks to its high level of artificial intelligence (AI) functionality, according to the manufacturer.

Air Techniques' complete product portfolio of utility systems, digital imaging, and merchandise is designed to equip the smallest dental practice to the largest university or hospital. Consistently, Air Techniques remains a leading manufacturer of dental air compressors and vacuum systems in North America.
