Supporting Gentle Ventilation of Newborns

What we do

Safe and gentle transition at birth

About 3 to 6 % of newborns require manual ventilation support to start breathing. Being one of the most important interventions performed in the delivery room, it’s also a very delicate one where both under- and overventilation can seriously damage lungs and brain. Nonetheless, it’s is one of the least controlled interventions taking place in the delivery room – tidal volumes given are rarely monitored. Instead, the volumes given have to be estimated by the caregiver trusting his or her clinical experience.

Monivent is a young medtech company dedicated to improve the emergency ventilatory care given to newborn babies in need of respiratory support at birth.

The product

Monivent Neo

product
Monivent Neo100, currently under development, helps the caregiver make the necessary adjustments to ensure an effective and gentle treatment during manual ventilation of newborns unable to breathe spontaneously. This monitoring device is an add-on to existing manual ventilation equipment.The airflow is wirelessly measured directly in the face mask and feedback on several critical parameters, such as tidal volume, are continuously shown on the external display to guide the caregiver.
product
Monivent Neo training for medical simulation
Meanwhile Monivent Neo100 is being developed for use in the emergency care of newborns, Monivent Neo training is available. The device is used as a tool to improve learning in simulated ventilation training on manikin. Most of the functionality is the same as described above, however the training device gives the user more freedom to utilize stored data to view personal development and more.
