StarMed Respiratory Hoods and masks for CPAP therapy and NIV from Intersurgical
The StarMed range of products incorporates a range of hoods and masks for CPAP therapy and hoods for non-invasive mechanical ventilation (NIV). They have been designed to offer an alternative to traditional interfaces, and are well tolerated for extended periods and can reduce the risks associated with both endotracheal intubation and face mask use.
Offering several clinical benefits for both the patient and the care providers, the hood interface helps to overcome many of the issues experienced with both endotracheal intubation and face mask use.
The use of the hood interface has been associated with increased patient comfort and improved NIV outcomes, leading to reduced total ventilation time and ICU length of stay. Two specific products from the range are outlined below.
StarMed CaStar Up – Openable hood for CPAP therapy
The CaStar Up is an openable hood for CPAP therapy that allows rapid access to the patient’s face during nursing procedures or in case of emergency. One operator can easily remove the upper part of the hood. View the product video and the range here.
