Propellaire Nasal Pad
The application and utilization of NPPV or non-invasive ventilation in the hospital setting has shown to be effective and common practice. Clinical guidelines recommend routine assessment of the skin and risk of pressure ulcers, regular pressure relief and skin-protective strategies should be included in the routine application of NIV to reduce discomfort and the occurrence of soft tissue damage. One of the most unpleasant and painful iatrogenic interfacerelated complications in NIV is facial pressure ulcers. To repair damage to the soft tissue on the bridge of the nose can be costly and can also be cause of interrupting or discontinuing therapy which can lead to intubating the patient to provide adequate respiratory support. Reduce and minimize the risk associated with nasal skin breakdown with Propellaire as a standard component in your NIV strategy. It is simple and easy to apply to the patient's nasal bridge area and works with most oro-nasal masks.
