Janus is a mask for the treatment of respiratory complications in critically ill patients during endoscopic procedures.
Unlike all other available devices, Janus can be used both in elective procedures and intraprocedural emergency situations. Thanks to a patented system, it can be positioned around an already inserted endoscope, allowing the physician to begin the ventilation without having to remove the instrument.
The positioning of the mask allows to begin a non invasive ventilation to complete the procedure even in the case of acute respiratory failure, while ensuring an excellent degree of maneuverability of the instrument.
In case of need, the mask can be opened and removed whilst leaving the instrument in place.
This mask can be used in Gastroenterology, for the following procedures: Gastroscopy (EGD), Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), Echoendoscopy (EUS) e Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) in patients affected by ALS.
