Overview

The Breath of Life  

The Engström for Neonates provides ventilation for your youngest and most challenging patients, both full-term newborns and preemies. Many are at risk due to complications, so it‘s critical that respiratory support systems in the NICU be accurate and sensitive to the smallest changes within a tiny body. Now you can support the quality of care by enhancing the accuracy, synchrony and versatility of respiratory assistance, breath by breath.

Benefits

Breath-by-Breath Therapy Tailored to the Needs of Neonatal Patients  

A newborn’s complex physiology requires a delicate equilibrium between the ventilator and the developing lungs. This equilibrium can be supported by delivering a precise volume and pressure and by helping to reduce the breathing fatigue with the correct synchrony and safety to support fragile lungs during the development phase. The Engstrom for Neonates was designed to deliver precise volume and pressure1 – breath by breath - with excellent response time and pressurization."

Comprehensive Set of Modes

  • Volume and pressure breaths
  • Mechanical, assisted or spontaneous modes
  • Hybrid modes with volume guarantee (see VG-PS section)
  • Invasive and non-invasive interfaces, including nasalCPAP (nCPAP).  

A Flexible Solution

  • Integrate your ventilation and monitoring
  • Optional proximal Neo Flow Sensor
  • Easy to maintain, low cost to own
  • Adaptable to your environment

Technology

A new standard in neonatal ventilation: VG-PS

Volume Guarantee – Pressure Support (VG-PS) combines the advantages of pressure breaths with the guarantee of volume delivery in spontaneously breathing patients.  

Get proven accuracy and synchrony to guarantee tidal volume breath by breath.

VG-PS allows clinicians to select the optimal level of support and adapt quickly to meet changing requirements.  

VG-PS offers consistency in volume regardless of the type of breath delivered. It provides synchrony of both the inspiratory and expiratory phases of a breath providing the lowest pressure required to deliver the desired volume.
