General Uses

PRIMAFORM™ and PRIMAFORM™ Grip Anesthesia masks are intended for the transmission of medical gases to patients. The masks are to be worn over the mouth and nose of the patient to allow delivery of the required gases. PRIMAFORM™ and PRIMAFORM™ Grip masks come in various sizes to fit different user populations.

  • Do not over inflate or use excessive pressure when applying the mask.
  • Do not attach mask to any connection size that is not compatible. Please refer to connection sizing indicated on the product.
  • The effect of “dead space” in an anesthesia mask on patient ventilation should be evaluated on an individual basis.
