pNeuton Model S

Ventilation with CPAP for EMS ground and air transport, and hospital settings

The pNeuton Model S Ventilator with CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) provides mask CPAP plus volume or pressure ventilation for pediatric to adult patients in pre-hospital and hospital environments. Built tough for the rigors of EMS ground and air transport.

For early intervention, the built-in CPAP system allows you to start with face-mask CPAP and seamlessly switch to mechanical ventilation if needed without interruption. The built-in high output demand flow CPAP system with automatic sensitivity ensures critical care ventilation needs are optimized for spontaneous and mandatory breaths.

Fully pneumatic, the pNeuton S does not require batteries or electrical power so it is always ready for operation.

With simple-to-use controls – Tidal Volume, Respiratory Rate and Pressure Limit – the pNeuton S accommodates even the most challenging patients in respiratory distress.
