Crosstex International Inc. and its subsidiary, Accutron Inc., have launched Axess Mask, a single-use, lightweight, and low-profile nasal mask that is contoured to fit comfortably over the patient’s nose.
The Axess Mask and scavenging circuit are constructed of slender, lightweight tubing to reduce drag that can lead to mask displacement. The mask and circuit combined are designed to provide patients with a comfortable experience while offering clinicians easy and unobstructed access to the oral cavity. Neither the mask nor the scavenging circuit contains natural rubber or latex.
“Crosstex is excited to be able to offer new, innovative solutions that address patient comfort as well as patient safety. The Axess Mask and scavenging circuit offer relaxation for the patient while giving the clinician better access to the oral cavity,” said Gary Steinberg, president of Crosstex International.
“Patient safety has always been the cornerstone of the Crosstex mission,” said Jackie Beltrani, vice president of global marketing for Crosstex International. “The growing emphasis on patient comfort and nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation correlates with an increase in positive patient experiences. For dental professionals, that has the potential to mean more referrals and more opportunities to grow their practices.”
