Crosstex Launches AXESS™ Mask Sedation System

Cantel Medical subsidiary introduces new innovation that offers comfort, relaxation and efficiency to patients

Phoenix, AZ (March 1, 2017) —Crosstex International, Inc. and its subsidiary, Accutron, Inc., today announced the launch of the AXESS™ Mask, a single-use, lightweight and low profile nasal mask that is contoured to form fit comfortably over the patient’s nose.

AXESS™ Mask and scavenging circuit are constructed of slender, lightweight tubing to reduce drag that can lead to mask displacement. The mask and circuit combined are designed to provide patients with a comfortable experience while offering clinicians easy and unobstructed access to the oral cavity. Neither the mask nor the scavenging circuit contains natural rubber or latex.

“Crosstex is excited to be able to offer new, innovative solutions that address patient comfort as well as patient safety. The AXESS™ Mask and scavenging circuit offer relaxation for the patient while giving the clinician better access to the oral cavity,” said Gary Steinberg, President of Crosstex International.

“Patient safety has always been the cornerstone of the Crosstex mission,” said Jackie Beltrani, Vice President of Global Marketing for Crosstex International. “The growing emphasis on patient comfort and nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation correlates with an increase in positive patient experiences. For dental professionals, that has the potential to mean more referrals and more opportunities to grow their practices.”

About AXESS™ Masks

AXESS™ Mask is a new nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation nasal mask designed for patient comfort and relaxation, and for clinical efficiency. AXESS™ Masks offer visual assurance to the clinician as fogging appears in the translucent mask when patients breathe through their nose. The contour around the mask perimeter provides a nasal/facial seal that minimizes ambient nitrous oxide in the operatory and gas flow into the patient’s eyes – all without the use of tape or uncomfortable cannula protruding into the patient’s nostril.

The accompanying low profile scavenging circuit easily retrofits to most scavenging circuits and can be steam-sterilized and reused, making it both cost-effective and environmentally friendly.

AXESS™ Masks are available in three sizes and two scents - mint and bubblegum. A clear, unscented version also is available for scent-sensitive patients.
