pNeuton model S Ventilator

pNeuton model S Ventilator with CPAP for EMS Ground and Air Transport

pNeuton model S ventilator provides mask CPAP plus volume or pressure ventilation for pediatric to adult patients for pre-hospital and hospital environments; with simple-to-use controls – Tidal Volume, Respiratory Rate and Pressure Limit.

For early intervention, the built-in CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) system allows you to start with face mask CPAP and if the patient needs it, seamlessly provide ventilation without interruption. Fully pneumatic, the pNeuton S does not use batteries or electrical power to provide ventilation with readiness for operation.

Meeting the Needs for the Most Challenging Patients in Respiratory Distress

The built-in high output demand flow CPAP system with automatic sensitivity insures critical care ventilation needs are optimized for spontaneous and mandatory breaths.

A CPAP system that works with your patient, providing low spontaneous work of breathing compared to disposable CPAP mask options and other transport ventilators. A choice of 100% or 65% oxygen delivery lets you significantly extend transport times to help you care for the most difficult patients, from trauma site to the emergency room, to the MRI, for inter-facility transport, wherever the patient may be located.

Bray says another big benefit of the pNeuton model S is the ability to have the ventilator.“We use the ventilator during cardiac arrests, and it frees up a person for resources,” Bray says. “It’s kind of like a force multiplier. When we put the patient on a ventilator, the paramedic is free to work on other aspects of the patient.”

Ronald Bray – Nature Coast EMS Lecanto, FL

The quality and simplicity of it [pNeuton model S] was that it could be easily purchased, it came contained in one unit with its own bag and hoses, it was designed to be utilized in an ambulance, the amount of oxygen it utilizes was significantly less than prior devices we had used so it offered cost savings and efficiency, and it was compact, light and required very little teaching time.

Airon’s pNeuton model S transport ventilator provides adult/pedatric volume or bi-level pressure ventilation and high-performance CPAP in EMS environments. Pure pneumatic technology eliminates the need for batteries. A choice of 100% or 65% oxygen delivery lets providers significantly extend transport times-up to 45 minutes on a D Cylinder.

Distance from appropriate medical facilities or time spent getting into and out of some of the more harrowing locales we encounter proves an ongoing need for quality ventilation equipment…The pNeuton S meets these challenges for Clay County.

Beyond it’s petite size (4″ x 8″ x 6”) and weight (6 lbs.), the main attraction of the pNeuton S was it’s ability to deliver continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). Quad City Med Force used other ventilators previously, but those lacked CPAP capability.

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