The LMA Mucosal Atomization Device is the perfect solution for the administration of topical drugs quickly and painlessly. It sprays the atomized medication into the nostril where the drug rapidly gets absorbed by the mucosal membrane and directly passes into the bloodstream. This process of absorption eliminates the risk of loss of medication and ensures that the medication starts acting immediately after the delivery.
The LMA MAD is a great alternative for patients who are not comfortable with using needles or catheters. It is also ideal to overcome the running off or low absorption rate of medications with delivered as larger droplets.
To facilitate faster and easier absorption, the Mucosal Atomizer Device breaks down the medication into a fine mist of particles which are 30-100 microns in size. The soft, conical plug on the tip of the device seals the nostril opening to prevent leakage of fluid or medication. The device works regardless of the position it is kept in and hence allows patients to use it in a lying, sitting, or standing position. Its simple delivery system makes it appropriate for patients on both Advanced Life Support (ALS) and Basic Life Support (BLS) systems.
The Teleflex LMA MAD is available with a three milliliter syringe to help administer a precise dose of medication. The needle-free administration feature of the device eliminates all risks of injuries due to a sharp needle. The device is ready-to-use and saves a significant amount of time in setting up IV devices to administer doses. It also does not require any sterilization before use. It is important to note that LMA Intranasal Device should only be used with drugs approved for intranasal delivery.
