PeDIA Anesthesia Balloons:
Kids don't like needles. So, for the last centruy, children have gone under anesthesia by breathing anesthesia gases through an anesthesia mask, a process called induction. Mask induction, however, has its own set of problems. Fifty percent of children have significant anxiety with this method. The gases smell bad and the mask feels claustrophobic, even suffocating according to some kids. When a child resists the mask, the staff must hold the child down. All of this leads to significant anxiety--and it doesn't end there. This stress before surgery leads to resistance and problems in the operating room, the recovery room, and even at home. Maladaptive behaviors (such as regression, aggression, bed-wetting & mistrust of medical personnel) can last weeks, months, or even years. All this is considered normal. At PeDIA, we'd like to redefine normal.
Medical Devices for Pediatrics
Since the mid-twentieth century, anesthesia providers have searched for a solution such as medication, therapies and distraction. They all failed because these anxiety Band-Aides never addressed the root cause of the problem: the anesthesia mask.
PeDIA is the first mask-free anesthesia gas delivery system designed for kids. PeDIA Anesthesia Balloon is filled with anesthesia gases. Once in the operating room, the child plays with their balloon, inhaling and exhaling until they get sleepy. PeDIA turns panic into play!
It's time to give up the traumatic old standard. Make a better choice. Choose a PeDIA.
