SAM%20long%20logo_edited.jpg

Developed by Dr Paul Scott, anaesthetist and founder of Scott Airway Management, to address critical safety issues identified with bag-mask ventilating and protecting health care professionals from aerosolised patients airway secretions.

CRITICAL NEEDS

Improving bag-mask ventilation

  • Globally more than 55% of men have facial hair or a beard.

  • A beard is an independent predictor of impossible bag-mask ventilation.

  • Currently there are no solutions in the market to overcome this problem.

Reducing viral transmission

  • 70%-80% of health care workers  infected with Covid-19 during Victoria’s second wave of infections were caught at work.

  • In hospitals, 70% of infections were among nurses.

  • Transmission through eyes and mouth is a risk to staff and increases pressure on resources.

SAM Safety Shield Guedel

Critical need: improving bag-mask ventilation in bearded and misshapen faces.

Globally more than 55% of men have facial hair or a beard. A beard is an independent predictor of impossible bag-mask ventilation.

SAM Safety Shield Guedel was developed to address critical safety issues identified with bag-mask ventilating patients with facial hair and misshapen faces.

A secondary benefit is the protection of health care professionals from patients aerosolised secretions during bag-mask ventilation.

SAM Safety Shield Bite Block

SAM Safety Shield for use with a Bite Block during endoscopy bronchoscopy,  trans oesophageal echo assists to reduce viral transmission between patients and health care professionals.

Currently for use with Oxyguard ® bite block provides additional protection from patients airway secretions compared to using a bite block alone.

When a patient is unable to wear a surgical mask when undergoing a medical procedure like an endoscopy, the SAM Safety Shield reduces the risk of infectious aerosol particles being released during breathing infecting health care professionals.

Infection control, it's not over when the patients are under.
