An atraumatic device for the delivery of topical anaesthetic in paediatric patients
The use of MADgic™ to deliver topical anaesthesia to the upper airway increases patient acceptance during difficult awake intubations. Topical anaesthesia can also reduce the risk of laryngospasm vs intravenous drug delivery.
Larygospasms are three times more likely to occur in a paediatric patient than an adult.
Utilising MADgic™ to apply topical anaesthetic:
- May reduce coughing or gagging versus intravenous delivery of anaesthetic
- Replaces the need to deliver anaesthetic via the cricothyroid ligament
