Ventilator System Brings Advanced Features to the NICU

Bringing advanced ventilation technology into the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), Maquet’s SERVO-i Infant Release 3.0 with new Nasal CPAP, Y sensor measurement and other advanced features delivers the performance features of an adult ventilator fine-tuned for infants.

Providing noninvasive support for patients weighing between 0.5 and 10 kgs, the Nasal CPAP feature enhances oxygenation and recruits collapsed alveoli. It delivers fast response to pressure variations due to patient inhalation and exhalation.

The ventilator responds to minute deviations from user preset CPAP pressure measurements to ensure precise gas delivery and maintains stable CPAP pressure. It has leakage control and supports both nasal prongs and masks. The SERVO-i Infant Y sensor enables measurement of proximal pressure and flow at the airway, allowing the ventilator to quickly sense when an infant wants to breathe.
