OSA Patient Risks One in Five Patients has Undiagnosed OSA (Download this document as a pdf)

The average patient is older, heaver and has more airway issues.

By nature, these patients are at a greater risk of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It is estimated that as many as 24% of men and 9% of women have OSA. The real risk is that the majority of them are undiagnosed.

Actively reversing volatile anesthetics from these patients reduces risk.

 

QED-100

Reduce Risk. Improve Life.

OSA Patients are not always easy to recognize since 80% to 95% of patients with OSA are undiagnosed. Obstructive Sleep Apnea also occurs two times more often in adults older than 65.

ANEclear

If you know or suspect a patient suffers from OSA, the ANEclear offers a simple, easy-to-use solution to rapidly reverse volatile anesthetics to quickly restore airway reflexes, thereby decreasing the risk of aspiration, apnea and re-intubation with a difficult airway.

 

Reverse Volatile Anesthetics, Restore Patient Airway Reflexes

Anesthetic Elimination with the QED-100

Extubation is a critical time in the management of known or suspected OSA patients. The potential for loss of airway control is present.

The ANEclear restores OSA patient airway reflexes quickly by:

  • Increasing cerebral blood flow to accelerate brain washout of volatile anesthetic
  • Increasing spontaneous respiration
  • Allowing hyperventilation to eliminate arterial anesthetic through the lungs without lowering PaCO2 and cerebral blood flow
  • Absorbing inspired volatile anesthetic to prevent anesthetic rebreathing

Rapid restoration of airway reflexes reduces the risk of post-extubation apnea and aspiration.

How the ANEclear works for you

  • Activated with the flip of a switch
  • Placed between the endotracheal tube or LMA and circuit
  • Works with isoflurane, sevoflurane and desflurane
  • Adjustable breathing tube can be expanded or contracted to regulate CO2 level
  • No new drug interactions or side effects to consider

The ANEclear restores protective airway reflexes faster, resulting in a patient who can be predictably extubated sooner and a patient who is more alert at extubation.
