Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 7, 2011
NuMask, Inc., a medical device manufacturer dedicated to improving emergency medical practices, has been recognized as a Top Innovations Award winner from EMS World.
The company received this recognition for the NuMask IntraOral ventilation mask/oropharyngeal airway (OPA) kit. Based on the design of a snorkel mouthpiece, the Intra-Oral Mask (IOM) maintains ideal positioning and seal regardless of the facial features of the wearer, which results in superior ventilation over traditional facemasks. The novel oropharyngeal airway (OPA) is recognized for its ability to be trimmed to size due to its unique flexibility.
"I found reason after reason to like this device," wrote EMSWorld Magazine writer Mike Smith in making the announcement. "This is an outstanding execution of a simple, yet great idea."
EMSWorld.com and EMS World Magazine provide mission critical information and resources for the emergency medical service responder, and serve as a platform for online discussion and interaction.
"We are thrilled that EMS World selected the NuMask IOM and OPA for this honor," said Dr. David Isagholian, co-founder and CEO of NuMask.
