Per Steve Anderson, CEO of Preceptis Medical, "Though general anesthesia is necessary for many pediatric surgeries, routine ear tube placement is a minor procedure that should not necessitate the use of general anesthesia. The FDA warning highlights the need for alternatives to general anesthesia for young children." Mike Loushin M.D., pediatric anesthesiologist and founder of Preceptis Medical adds, "There are benefits to reduced anesthesia whenever possible. Preceptis was founded to bring these benefits to pediatric ear tube surgery by providing surgeons with new tools that enable it to be performed safely and effectively with less anesthesia."
The Hummingbird TTS offers a solution for reducing the exposure to general anesthesia for ear tube procedures in children —providing parents, providers and caregivers with a choice.
