The new SEDARA® Gas Mixer System from Linde Therapeutic Solutions represents the medical industry’s first fixed-concentration nitrous oxide/oxygen (N2O/O2) therapy innovation in over 20 years.

The system is an innovative technology designed for the consistent and controlled delivery of N2O/O2 therapy, and is intended to aid procedural pain management associated with short-duration emergency and planned procedures.

Delivering a fixed 50/50 mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen, the SEDARA® system eliminates the complexities and risks associated with titration to adjust the gas concentrations.

As a result, it provides an option uniquely suited to the emergency department, where effective pain management, time and efficiency are increasingly critical.

Mendy Hansen, director of marketing for Linde Therapeutic Solutions, explained, “Users report success with the System in many clinical settings including emergency departments, burn units, and urology clinics. The System offers patients compassionate needle-free N2O/O2 administration, which translates into rapid pain relief that minimizes trauma, struggle, and physical restraint – all of which help to free up precious time for physicians and staff.”

The SEDARA® Gas Mixer System will be unveiled at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Annual Scientific Assembly to be held at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in Seattle, Washington from October 14-16, 2013.
