The SafetyNeb™ Mask wins innovations award at EMS World Expo 2021, gains recognition as an optimal nebulizer facemask that can safely deliver aerosolized medications even for COVID patients
As Covid-19 continues unabated and new variants continue to be found, The SafetyNeb™ Mask has become invaluable for frontline workers as well as patients. Innovative technology and PPE like the SafetyNeb™ Mask will continue to protect our frontline workers while providing optimal care to patients.
MARGATE, FL., – EMS World has officially announced in December 2021, that the revolutionary SafetyNeb™ Mask won the Innovations Award at the recent EMS World Expo in Atlanta. The SafetyNeb™ Mask allows for medications to be more safely delivered to patients suffering from tight airways, also known as bronchospasm.
This innovative mask is a crucial tool and is useful even if patients have Coronavirus, Influenza, or other unknown pathogens. The SafetyNeb™ Mask has viral exhalation filters and a faceplate that creates a tight seal on the patient's face, thus allowing a safer method of dispensing life-saving medications. Because of the tight seal, a closed circuit is created, putting the filters to work every time that the patient exhales. Use of the SafetyNeb™ Mask is particularly important when giving aerosolized treatments like nebulized albuterol in confined spaces of an ambulance compartment or public spaces such as emergency departments.
The SafetyNeb™ Mask is now being used in over 30 states in the United States, including EMS agencies, hospitals, and prisons. It is compatible with various nebulizers. Prior to COVID-19, a typical nebulizer mask had open vent holes for the patient’s exhaled breath. This creates a huge hazard to our frontline workers when dealing with high-risk patients such as patients who have tested positive for the Coronavirus. The AerosoLess™ SafetyNeb™ Nebulizer Mask is designed to drastically reduce both bioaerosols and fugitive emissions from being released into the environment during the treatment. The SafetyNeb™ Mask does this with its submicron filters and its tight seal.
During a recent interview, the company spokesperson for AerosoLess Medical was quoted as saying, “We are very pleased to have received this Innovations Award for our new SafetyNeb™ Mask. Our team put a lot of hard work into this project to keep our frontline workers safe, and we are developing more innovations in this space.” He went on to say,” The COVID-19 pandemic has forever changed the paradigms of how to safely and effectively treat patients with shortness of breath. AerosoLess™ Medical has developed both the SafetyNeb™ and SafetyO2™masks which seal tightly to the patient’s face. Our patent-pending faceplate helps create this seal, therefore putting the filters to work every time the patient exhales. These sub-micron filters out potentially dangerous bioaerosols before they can be released into the environment.” He further added, “Our goal is optimizing patient care while maximizing health-care worker safety.”
