Air Techniques Introduces Double Nasal Hood Scavenging System

The autoclavable system's lower profile is said to offer clinicians better sightlines.

Air compressor and vacuum systems company Air Techniques has stepped into the nitrous oxide/oxygen scavenging arena with the release of its Nasal Hood Scavenger System and Scavenging Circuits.

Air Techniques’ Double Hood Scavenger System is a fully autoclavable scavenger breathing circuit that is designed to provide better delivery and monitoring. Its soft, single-use scented double nasal hoods offer an excellent seal and lower profiles, giving dental professionals better sightlines into the oral cavity.

The device’s oral exhalation valve is said to increase patient breathing comfort, while its outer hood sits closer to the patient’s face, increasing the scavenging efficiency of exhaled gases. The system also features a universal fit with other double scavenging circuits, allowing practices to use the Double Nasal Hoods with their existing systems.

Air Technique’s Double Nasal Hoods are available in either adult or pediatric sizes with several scents, including Blueberry Dance, Strawberry Delight, and Bouncy Bubble, with more scents being added soon.
