Overcoming Respiratory Obstruction

High Flow Oxygen Therapy

Benefits Over Conventional Oxygen Therapy


High flow oxygen therapy is a superior form of O2 therapy that uses higher flows for better physiological performance, but it requires complex, expensive equipment, which limits broader implementation:

  • 80% reduction of the need for non-invasive ventilation. [14]

  • 66% reduction of oxygen desaturation. [14]

  • 80% reduction of the need for reintubation.  [14]

The future of respiratory care is here with the Scope Respirator

 A modular, multi-functional oxygen device that is the singular solution for all oxygen therapy needs.

A game changer for perioperative care, especially for non-operating room procedures like endoscopy.

U.S. Patent No. 17/188.846; multiple patents pending

The Scope Respirator Outperforms

  • Soft, comfortable cushion for better patient comfort and adherence

  • Interchangeable caps provide functionality on the cutting edge of respiratory care

  • Singular oxygen delivery solution throughout the continuum of care

  • High flow oxygen therapy, virus particle containment, and non-invasive ventilation in one device



Unlocking the Potential of Respiratory Care Post Covid

At ScopeMed, we are leveraging the invaluable lessons acquired during the pandemic to shape the future of respiratory care. Our revolutionary, modular technology is designed to address the immediate requirements of respiratory care, forging ahead on three innovative paths:

High Flow Oxygen Therapy, Positive Pressure Support, and Passive Oxygenation.

1. High Flow Oxygen Therapy (HFOT)

  • The OFF-VENT (Offloading Venturi Entrainment for Non-invasive Therapy)

  • Next generation nasal cannula apparatus uses Venturi principle to enable HFOT

  • One way valves and PEEP functionality keep airway open during exhalation

  • WOSHER cap on mask delivers humidified oxygen that augments the air being entrained

  • End tidal CO2 monitoring capability 

WOSHER (Wettable Oxygen Shower Head for Enhancing Respirations) 
Delivers a soft, distributed mist of oxygen that can be humidified. Multiple openings for the insertion of nasal scopes and various accessories.

2. Positive Pressure Support

  • Leak proof cap for connection to Hyperinflation bag or ventilators

  • Addition of extra oxygen flow and/or PEEP valve helps keep airways open

  • Can be used with Heat Moisture Exchanger (HME) filters for particulate filtration and for monitoring CO2

  • Venturi adapters available for HFOT


3. Passive Oxygenation

  • Most innovative oxygen delivery system yet

  • Delivers 24-93% of oxygen from 1-15LPM without the need for reservoir bags

  • Replaces 6 standard respiratory devices 

  • Version with breathing filter available for reducing respiratory particle transmission.

  • Currently, oxygen masks have design constraints that preclude them from respiratory particle protection: they have closed bodies designed to enrich pressurized oxygen from the supply so they only contain small vents on the side to prevent hypercapnia. This limits the integration of breathing filters.

  • Combination of distributed oxygen delivery and open style required to reduce work of breathing.

On average, there’s been one pandemic caused by air-borne viruses every 6 years since 2002 (SARS, MERS, Covid-19) [12]. By the end of 2021, there were 622 excessive physician deaths in the US due to Covid-19 [13].

  • Background Oriented Schieleren (BOS) imaging was done at the Engineering Department of Case Western Reserve University 

  • Study was done to visualize aerosol production during a simulated cough on a manikin

  • The SCOPE respirator was benchmarked against some popular masks on the market

  • The images show the comparison between the SCOPE respirator and the Hudson RCI Simple Oxygen Mask (One of the most common masks on the market)


Breath of Life: Seizing the Opportunity for Optimal Respiratory Care

A recent trend in respiratory therapy is the increased adoption of High Flow Oxygen Therapy (HFOT) and Non-invasive ventilation following their efficacy during the Covid-19 pandemic.

These solutions typically need expensive equipment like ventilators and active heating humidifiers

Non-Operating Room Anesthesia (NORA) cases occur in environments without the same kinds of equipment, personnel, and support as the OR

NORA cases are expected to grow to more than 50% of anesthesia cases in the near future.

Increasing anesthesia involvement due to increased demand for deep sedation to aid completion of cases and patient satisfaction.

Most common are gastroenterology, interventional radiology, cardiac catheterization lab.

34 million gastroenterology cases per year and growing.

High demand for a cost effective device that delivers HFOT and/or Non-invasive ventilation functionality without the need for expensive equipment
