The ReDe Mask contains a flexible oxygen mask and respiration detector that signals each time the patient exhales and gives a visual warning when breathing stops. The ReDe Mask allows a provider to deliver supplemental oxygen to a patient who is at risk of respiratory compromise, either due to intrinsic disease or administered sedatives, while simultaneously giving the provider a visual indication of ventilation.
The indictor signals on the ReDe Mask are bright and may be seen from a distance. Because of this, the provider caring for the patient can easily monitor ventilation from a distance and is free to move about the patient and perform other tasks. The flashing red signal is particularly visible and will alert any provider in the room that the patient may need intervention.
The ReDe Mask may be used in any situation in which an oxygen mask is currently used, such as during procedures in which sedation is provided, during transport of patients post-operatively, in the post anesthesia care unit, and on patients with respiratory problems that are being observed in an ambulance, emergency room, or hospital floor. It allows the provider to quickly count the respiratory rate, even if they are not immediately adjacent to the patient.
