Benefits

Enjoy advanced solutions for quickly and safely delivering neonatal resuscitation therapy to your precious, high-risk newborns:

Effective, reliable airway management

  • Fully integrated, gas-powered suction device is built in to help you quickly clear the airway. 

  • Suction canister holder accommodates various sizes and is easily accessible for single-patient use. 

Gentle breathing stimulation 

Gentle ventilation to stimulate breathing

  • Dual flow meter design helps you deliver consistent flow. 

  • O2 blender allows you to easily change oxygen concentrations from 21% to 100%. 

Available exclusively on Bag-mask andthe T-Piece Resuscitation System:

Precise and controlled Peak Inspiratory Pressure (PIP) and Positive End Expiratory Pressure (PEEP)

  • Essential for adequate oxygenation and Functional Residual Capacity

  • Set prior to resuscitation, the desired levels are maintained automatically throughout the procedure

User-frlendly PIP safety valve

  • Easily activated with just one hand

  • Adjust to 30 cmH2O without interrupting the procedure

  • Easily adjust to 45 cmH2O to help ensure maximum pressure isn’t exceeded

Technology

Get exceptional performance every time:

  • Consistent performance: Clinician’s bag @ 20/5 x 40 bpm

Manual Bag & Mask vs. T-Piece:
These results demonstrate that when used properly, T-Piece style resuscitation may provide for more consistent pressure delivery compared to manual self- or flow-inflating resuscitator bags.1

  • Faster pressure adjustment: Transition time from 20 to 40 cmH2O

Resuscitation system performance
The design of GE Healthcare resuscitation systems eases adjustment of maximum inspiratory pressure to speed transition to the desired pressure level.

  • Improved performance: ~3x faster transition from 20 to 40 cmH2O

Resuscitation T-Piece performance
The improved transition time for adjustment of the T-Piece system results in an approximately three-times faster transition to desired pressure and correspondingly fewer breaths within the transition time.
