MELVILLE, N.Y., May 18, 2022 – Henry Schein Medical, the U.S. medical business of Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC), today announced its presence at the 49th Annual Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates (SGNA) Course in Salt Lake City, Utah, from May 22 through May 24.

Visitors to Henry Schein’s booth will have the opportunity to explore the benefits of the Procedural Oxygen Mask (POM), a multi-port capnography endoscopy mask that allows scopes, probes, and tubes to be inserted through the mask and enter the nose or mouth while maintaining a high percentage of oxygen delivered to the patient. The mask helps maximize oxygen delivery, end-tidal capnography monitoring, and barrier protection for increased patient safety during upper endoscopies.

Additionally, attendees can learn about Micro-Tech’s GI endoscopy accessories and devices. Micro-Tech’s product offerings include biopsy forceps, snares, clips, injection needles, dilation balloons, and various accessories for GI procedures such as poly traps, bite blocks, and bedside kits.
