pNeuton mini Ventilator

pNeuton mini Ventilator

pNeuton mini Ventilator for Neonatal / Infant Critical Life Support Anywhere, Anytime

The pNeuton mini ventilator is a new approach to neonatal, infant and pediatric ventilatory support, and accommodates even the most fragile patients from 400 grams to 25 kilograms.

No Need for Electricity or Batteries

With a built-in oxygen blender, and precise timing & pressure controls, the pNeuton mini matches the complexity of pressure-limited ventilation in standard infant ventilators without the need for electricity or batteries.

A purely pneumatic ventilator supporting patients non-invasively using nasal prongs / masks for CPAP application, or ventilation + CPAP with endotracheal tubes for full support. The ventilator is ideal for transporting patients both within the hospital and via air or ground ambulance.

Neonatal / Infant Applications to Match the Clinical Complexity

For your referring hospital or Labor & Delivery, from the newborn’s first troubled breath in the delivery room to optimizing ventilation support for transport.

The pNeuton mini is MRI compatible and can be placed right next to the MRI magnet with a remote alarm for enhanced patient safety.

The pNeuton mini is also compatible with the Life Pulse High-Frequency Ventilator from Bunnell Incorporated, providing conventional ventilation in tandem with the Life Pulse without interfering with high frequency ventilation or nuisance alarms.

Benefits for the Patient

  • A wide range of continuous flow settings to provide the right ventilation for the size of your patient with the least amount of expiratory flow resistance
  • Adjustable oxygen delivery from 21% to 100% to precisely match patient oxygen requirements
  • Switch from CPAP nasal prongs, face mask to invasive ventilation seamlessly and without interruption
  • One ventilator with no change in patient circuit wherever patient care and diagnostic procedures are needed

Benefits for the Healthcare Provider

  • Calibrated controls for precise and easy operation
  • Night visible manometer to monitor patient pressure and effort
  • Patient disconnect and high-pressure alarms that work during non-invasive and invasive ventilation
  • MRI conditional up to 3 T – place right next to the scanner with remote alarm output for the control room
  • Oxygen powered – no batteries to change
  • Rugged and tested to meet RTCA standards with everything built-in – no accessories needed

Benefits for your Budget

  • Switch from invasive ventilatory support to non-invasive with just a simple change of the patient interface
  • Lightweight and portable with attachment to any patient care incubator/bed
  • Minimal oxygen consumption to maximize transport times
  • No batteries or electronics decrease preventative maintenance costs
