What are Neonatal Facemasks?
Neonatal face masks are used in combination with a resuscitation device to gently inflate the lungs of infants experiencing difficulty in breathing.
What is a Resuscitation Device?
The resuscitation device is a set-up used to deliver positive pressure ventilation to a patient exhibiting an irregular breathing pattern until a more definitive airway can be established.
Neonatal Face Masks for Respiratory Ailments
Used to treat conditions like hypercapnic respiratory failure, hypoxic respiratory failure, apnea, or altered mental status with the inability to protect the airway.
Functioning of the Resuscitation Device and Facemasks
The face masks are attached to the bag via a shutter valve and upon the compression of the bag, the device forces air through into the patient’s lungs.
Neonatal Face Masks Durability
These are manufactured with durable and high-quality materials that can withstand a variety of cleaning methods and a range of storage conditions.
Neonatal Face Masks Care Instructions
No additional care apart from proper reprocessing and assembly of the mask is required. It is easy to clean, disinfect and sterilize.
Neonatal Facemasks- Designed For Convenience
Neonatal facemasks are designed to be soft and pliable, with a transparent surface that allows breath condensate to be observed. The thicker and broader top surface than most other facemasks, and a more pliable bottom cuff, make it easier to hold the mask correctly in place.
Guidelines For an Appropriate Mask
Careful consideration needs to be given to mask size, fit and hold as a good seal with a minimized leak is important for establishing effective ventilation.
Neonatal Face Masks Size Variants
The newborn mask is available in two sizes, intended for the proper, convenient treatment of newborns and infants who require respiratory support.
