A self-inflating, manual and reusable bag-mask intended for newborns and infants who require respiratory support. By introducing positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP), Upright with PEEP Newborn Bag-Mask can help prevent repeated lung alveolar collapse during ventilation, helping recruit lung volume more efficiently, clear fluid from the lungs and reduce damage to the lung tissue.
PEEP is the current standard of care in high-resource settings and is recommended by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) for premature newborns.
Positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) of 6 cmH2O allows for improved safety and efficacy.
New and improved mask prevents mask leak by enabling better seal. Newborn mask sizes 0 and 1 included.
Transparent materials allow visual inspection of cleanliness and valve function.
Upright design improves mask seal by helping users provide even downward pressure onto mask.
Oxygen kit available upon request.
Compatible with NeoNatalie Simulator for training on neonatal resuscitation training
"PEEP plays an important role in keeping the lungs open and preventing collapse so that all areas of the lungs can participate in gas exchange" - Bamat et al, 2012
Visual description of PEEP:
Positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) is beneficial when ventilating preterm newborns because it facilitates lung aeration, fluid clearance and oxygenation (Thallinger, 2015)
