Monivent® Neo is a non-invasive monitoring device helping the caregiver ensure an effective and gentle treatment during manual ventilation of newborns unable to breathe spontaneously. The airflow given to the baby during the treatment is measured and feedback on several crucial parameters, for determining the success and efficacy of the ventilation treatment during the procedure, is given on an intuitive display.
Data from the treatment is stored during the procedure and can be easily accessed for documentation and analysis afterwards. The device is compatible with most devices for manual mask ventilation, such as a bag-valve-mask or t-piece resuscitator, minimizing the impact on existing routines and equipment used today.
Main application areas are within emergency care, training and research. Clinical use within the emergency care setting in the delivery room and NICU can guide the caregiver throughout the procedure to ensure safer procedures in line with recommended guidelines. As a tool within manual ventilation skills training the device can improve the learning outcome by providing continuous feedback on performance. The data storage possibilities enable better follow-up and research, to increase knowledge and identify room for further improvements, in a field where limited research exist today.
