Supporting caregivers to save our youngest patients

What we do

Safe and gentle resuscitation of newborns

Monivent is a young medtech company dedicated to improve the emergency ventilatory care given to newborn babies in need of respiratory support at birth. About 3-6 % of all newborns end up in this situation, where healthcare personnel today are lacking tools to determine how effective this manual ventilation really is. This can result in two major risks; inadequate volumes causing insufficient gas exchange and failed resuscitation while excessive volumes can result in over-expansion of the lungs causing lung injuries as well as extrapulmonary injuries, especially in babies born very prematurely.

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.
