 Air Assist 

A Revolutionary Device for Colonoscopy

TM

THE CHALLENGE: 

  • Air/CO2 escape and maintaining colonic distension during colonoscopy are common problems. 

  • Often the colon collapses at inopportune times while performing diagnostic and therapeutic maneuvers. 

  • Air/CO2 escape can lead to repeated or prolonged procedures, increasing patient risk and overall costs. 

  • Currently, there are no efficient effective methods to prevent gas escape and maintain colonic distension. 

  • Recent studies show that maintaining adequate colon distension is a key factor in good quality colonoscopy, improving Adenoma Detection Rates(ADR).

CURRENT METHODS:

  • The 2 most common methods, manual buttock pressure and patient repositioning, are often ineffective, physically demanding and require endo/anesthesia staff to take focus away from important tasks, increasing risk of staff injury and patient aspiration with left lateral to supine positioning.  ​

  • Other methods, such as left colon water instillation, are impractical, messy and require some technical skill. 

  • All current methods are inappropriate and ineffective in procedures performed through stomas.

OUR SOLUTION:

The Air Assist is an easy to use, one piece, disposable, self-lubricating medical grade silicon device that slides up and down the colonoscope effectively creating a reversible seal between the colonoscope and the anus/stoma thereby reducing air escape. It can be maneuvered solely by the endoscopist or effortlessly by the technician, allowing for immediate, reversible, on-demand colonic distention, leading to improved visibility during diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopy.
