pNeuton Model A Ventilator


pNeuton model A  ventilator with built-in CPAP for hospital environments
The pNeuton model A is a transport ventilator with built-in CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) for critical care patient support in hospital environments.

With simple-to-use controls – Tidal Volume, Respiratory Rate and Pressure Limit – pNeuton A can provide volume-targeted or pressure-limited ventilation. The built-in high output demand flow CPAP system insures critical care ventilation needs are optimized for spontaneous and mandatory breaths.

One device for OR, ICU, MRI, and more

Operating without the need of batteries or electrical power, the pNeuton A can help you care for the most difficult patients, from the emergency room to special procedures, MRI to the operating room and intensive care unit, wherever the patient may be located.

The pNeuton ventilators are critical care devices designed for use by healthcare professionals under the direction of a physician.
