LMA MAD Nasal Atomisation Device
Stock: In Stock
the safe, painless way to deliver medication without an iV line
The MAD Nasal Device from Teleflex was invented by an emergency physician and offers a useful, additional option in the choice of alternate access for medication delivery. The device is simply inserted into the nostril, and the medication atomised into particles which can be easily absorbed through the nose into the blood stream, giving similar dosaging results to an intravenous line.
Nasal drug administration with the MAD Nasal Device is quick and easy, eliminating IV set-up time and conserving resources. The malleable tip atomizes in any position, making proper medication delivery even easier. Additionally, no sterile technique is required, so more time is spent caring for the patient and less time starting a painful IV. It increases safety for both caregivers and patients through the avoidance of needlestick injury.
Can be purchased with or without a 1mL medication delivery syringe.
