Introducing the S.C.O.P.E. Respirator: 

A New Era of Respiratory Care.

Flow State in Respiratory Care. 

The future of respiratory care is
here with Scope Respirator

The S.C.O.P.E. Respirator is a modular, multi-functional mask that utilizes a mask body with a soft, comfortable face cushion, and interchangeable caps that are on the cutting edge of respiratory care, addressing trends of high flow oxygen therapy, non-invasive ventilation, aerosol containment, and singular oxygen delivery solutions throughout the continuum of care.

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

Overcoming Respiratory Obstruction

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.

  • High flow oxygen therapy reduces the need for non-invasive ventilation by 80%

  • High flow oxygen therapy reduces oxygen desaturations by 66%

  • High flow oxygen therapy reduces the need for reintubation by 80%

There are 14 million annual visits to the ED for respiratory illnesses in the US, not counting pandemic years [7].

There are 3.2 million hospital admissions per year for respiratory failure [8]

With a prevalence of more than a billion people worldwide, sleep apnea has become a public health concern [1]. Its prevalence is up to 25% of adults in the US [2], and as high as 88% in patients presenting for bariatric surgery [3].

Both sleep apnea and obesity are independent risk factors for perioperative complications with up to 8 times the odds ratio for hypoxemia, and postoperative respiratory support [5]

By 2030, nearly 1 in 2 adults in the US will be obese, and nearly 1 in 4 will have severe obesity [4]

Hypoxemia is reported in up to 54% of out of OR EGD cases [10]

There is a 33% reduction in the upper airway volume of patients with sleep apnea when they are put in operating position [9]

Inadequate oxygenation/ventilation is responsible for a third of legal claims in non-operating room anesthesia (NORA) cases [11]


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.

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)
