pNeuton model A

pNeuton model A is a Transport Ventilator with Built-In CPAP for Hospital Environments

The pNeuton model A with built-in CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) is ideal for critical care adult or pediatric 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

Fully pneumatic and operates 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 A Ventilator has an integrated all-pneumatic alarm system with remote alarm capability that keeps you alerted to patient circuit disconnects and low gas supply from bedside to MRI observation room and back to the patient bedside.

Noninvasive or invasive ventilation broadens the clinical application and prepares the clinician to meet patient needs during transport.

  • Provide invasive or non-invasive patient support
  • Low patient Work of Breathing with peak flow of up to 140 L/min to meet patient needs
  • 100% or 65% to match patient oxygen requirements
  • Switch from mask CPAP to invasive ventilation seamlessly and without interruption
  • Low-profile, easy-seal mask reduces facial pressure

Benefits for the Healthcare Provider

  • Calibrated CPAP and oxygen controls for easy operation
  • MRI conditional up to 3 T – place right next to the scanner with remote alarm output for the control room
  • Built-in CPAP/PEEP system with automatic sensitivity for changing patient needs; no need for external CPAP valves
  • Manometer to monitor patient pressure and effort
  • Monitor CO2 with invasive/non-invasive ventilation
  • Use the Safe-T-Vent Medication Nebulizer System and fill the nebulizer without losing CPAP
  • Use the bacteria / viral filter to protect caregiver from patient exhilation
  • Built-in patient disconnect alarm with remote output to nurse call systems
  • Oxygen powered – no batteries to change
  • Rugged and lightweight (6.5 lbs / 3 kg)

Benefits for your Budget

  • Two oxygen levels; conserve oxygen with 65% setting
  • 60-minute CPAP run time on a “E” cylinder
  • Demand flow CPAP system with minimal wasted oxygen
  • Standardized economical patient circuits save on operating costs
  • No batteries or electronics decrease maintenance cost
