Meddo's neonatal ventilator provides advanced management and control of ventilation parameters for premature or critically ill infants, delivering life-saving respiratory support. Our neonatal ventilator is designed to support breathing and respiratory function in premature or critically ill infants, providing advanced control and management of ventilation parameters.
Improved Respiratory function: Neonatal ventilators provide support to infants with respiratory issues by helping improve their breathing efficiency and promoting oxygenation.
Protection from Respiratory Damage: The use of neonatal ventilators can prevent respiratory damage that can stem from chronic lack of oxygen or respiratory distress.
Support for Premature Babies: Neonatal ventilators are vital for assisting premature / preterm infants and can reduce the risk of respiratory and other medical complications that they may face.
Reduction in Lung Injury risks: Ventilators can help decrease the risk of lung injuries, such as lung scarring or chronic lung disease in infants battling respiratory distress.
Consistent Oxygen Delivery: As a typical medical equipment used in NICU, Neonatal ventilators provide consistent and controlled delivery of oxygen and minimize the risk of fluctuations that may compromise an infant's wellbeing.
Customizable venting options: Neonatal ventilators are adjustable and can be tailored to an infant's respiratory demands, allowing for personalized and non-invasive ventilation.
Decreased Mortality: Neonatal ventilators have been shown to reduce infant mortality rates as they provide life-sustaining respiratory support.
A neonatal ventilator works by delivering a flow of air, oxygen, or other gases to a newborn's lungs through a tube or mask. The ventilator utilizes a mixture of compressed air or oxygen to create positive pressure which is delivered through tubing or other devices, and directly into the baby's airways. This pressure helps to push air into the baby's lungs, assisting with breathing, and providing support as needed. The speed, volume, and depth of each breath can be adjusted according to the baby's individual needs, which helps to ensure that they receive the most effective respiratory support possible.
A neonatal ventilator may be used when a newborn has breathing difficulties or respiratory distress, which can occur due to various reasons such as being born prematurely, being low birth weight, having an infection, or having a congenital heart defect. The ventilator is used to provide mechanical support to the baby's lungs and ensure adequate oxygen supply to their body. A neonatal ventilator may also be used during certain medical procedures, such as surgery or when a baby is unable to breathe adequately on their own after birth. The use of a neonatal ventilator is typically monitored by a team of medical professionals, including neonatologists, respiratory therapists, and nurses, to ensure that the baby's respiratory needs are met and any potential risks are managed effectively.
Weaning a baby off a neonatal ventilator is a gradual process usually taken over a period of days or weeks, as it depends on the baby's individual needs, health status, and response to the weaning process. The weaning process involves reducing the support provided by the ventilator gradually until the baby is able to breathe on their own. During the weaning process, medical professionals closely monitor the baby's breathing, blood oxygen levels, and other vital signs to ensure that the baby is handling the reduction in support well.
Once the baby starts breathing independently, they are taken off the ventilator and may be given high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) oxygen therapy to assist with breathing. HFNC therapy delivers a high flow of oxygen to the baby's lungs through a soft nasal prong that sits under the baby's nose, which helps open up the baby's airways and enhances oxygenation. If the baby tolerates the reduction in support, and their breathing and other vital signs remain stable, they can continue to be weaned off HFNC therapy entirely, and eventually, they will be able to breathe without any respiratory support.
