Pediatric Sedation Headset

Silver
2002

Client: Albert Einstein Healthcare Network

Creating a new design language for the genre, the Pediatric Sedation Headset will be used by children ages three to eight. The unit consists of a headset that dispenses inhaled anesthetics, a monitoring system-pulse oximetry measures oxygen in the blood and heart rate. A capnometer measures carbon dioxide in expired air-and an interactive entertainment component helps the child relax during the anesthesia process.
