There is a trusted solution 

Airon’s pNeuton family of efficient, effective and affordable ventilators can meet your requirements.

As an option for your neonatal and infant needs, Airon offers the pNeuton® mini and mini NEO ventilators that meet virtually the same performance specifications as the babyPAC for use in portable ventilation – transport, MRI and NICU. Take a look at this pNeuton mini and mini NEO and babyPAC Comparison Guide.

And, for pediatric and adult care, Airon offers the pNeuton Model A and pNeuton Model S that are comparable to the paraPAC plus 310. Take a look at this pNeuton Model A and pNeuton Model S and paraPAC Comparison Guide.

About the pNeuton mini and pNeuton mini NEO

Both the Airon pNeuton mini and pNeuton mini NEO are small, lightweight ventilators with precise timing and pressure controls designed for use on patients from 400 grams to 25 kilograms, and 400 grams to 20 kilograms respectively.

Both ventilators use pure pneumatic operation – no electricity or batteries required – and have built-in oxygen mixing – 21 to 100% – to meet the precise needs of patients.

And, the mini and mini NEO are MRI compatible, allowing for scanning with no image artifact. The ventilator can be placed close to the MRI magnet with no gauss line restriction. Best of all, both can be connected to a remote alarm in the MRI control room to enhance patient safety.

About the pNeuton Model A and pNeuton Model S

The pNeuton Model A Ventilator with built-In CPAP is your one go-to device for critical care adult or pediatric ventilatory support in a variety of hospital environments including ER and trauma, MRI, OR, ICU, and intra-hospital transport. The pNeuton Model A also has remote alarm capability. 

The pNeuton Model S Ventilator with CPAP provides mask CPAP plus volume or pressure ventilation for pediatric to adult patients in pre-hospital and hospital environments. 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. 

Both the Model A and Model S have a built-in high output demand flow CPAP system with automatic sensitivity to ensure critical care ventilation needs are optimized for spontaneous and mandatory breaths.

And, both the Model A and S are fully pneumatic to operate without the need for electricity or batteries, and have simple-to-use controls – Tidal Volume, Respiratory Rate and Pressure Limit – to accommodate even the most challenging patients in respiratory distress.
