Air Techniques, Inc., a leading innovator, and manufacturer of dental equipment have announced a new product line of Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen Nasal Hoods and Scavenging Circuits. As the market leader in dental air compressors and vacuum systems, this new product offering benefits from Air Techniques’ established and reliable line of high-quality vacuum systems.


There are multiple innovations that bring Air Techniques’ Double Nasal Hoods to the next level. The double hood design minimizes ambient nitrous oxide in the operatory while utilizing an oval exhalation valve that directs exhaled gases to the built-in scavenger “flow channels”, maximizing efficiency. These hoods focus on a “size matters” approach. The inner hood seals to the face to ensure proper gas delivery to the patient. A smaller profile provides improved “sightline” visibility for the dental staff and therefore allows better access to the oral cavity.


“Air Techniques is a staple in dental air and vacuum systems, Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen Sedation is the next natural fit for Air Techniques,” said Chris Wilson, Air Techniques’ Business Development Manager. “Our new Double Nasal Hoods were created with design, material, and fit all in mind. We wanted to ensure these products functionality and design were comfortable to patients and performance provided confidence to practitioners.”


The Double Nasal Hoods are latex-free and utilize a universal fit with other double scavenging circuits. This allows for use of your existing systems with the new Air Techniques Double Nasal HoodsAir Techniques’ Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen Scavenging Circuits are fully autoclavable and provides for safer delivery and monitoring. They are also compatible with most nitrous oxide/oxygen flowmeters.
