“Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a type of positive airway pressure that is used to deliver a set pressure to the airways that is maintained throughout the respiratory cycle, during both inspiration and expiration.”  To keep the pressure constant in the breathing circuit, the flow rate should be at least equal to the patient’s peak inspiratory flow demand. This helps achieve Positive End Expiratory Pressure (PEEP). PEEP is achieved at the end of the expiratory breath by stenting the airways open enabling the lungs to remain inflated therefore stopping the collapse of the alveoli and maintaining sufficient air in the lungs.
Positive End Expiratory Pressure (PEEP) is used to maintain pressure on the lower airways at the end of the breathing cycle which prevents the alveoli from collapsing during expiration.
The greater the surface area, the more gas exchange can occur therefore increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood.
By forcing the alveoli open and pushing oxygen across the alveolar membrane.
Side effects of CPAP treatment may include congestion, runny nose or dry mouth, humidification can often help with these symptoms. Masks may cause irritation or redness of the skin from tight contact with skin.
The AquaVENT® FD140i dual gas flow driver delivers safe and effective High Flow Oxygen Therapy and CPAP therapies for Neonatal, Paediatric and Adult patients.
We can support you to deliver CPAP with whatever delivery method you use. Solutions for ventilator CPAP, nCPAP and bubble CPAP available.
All NeoFlow® circuits have BioCote® protection which helps reduce the risk of infection in NICU and Paediatric wards.
Our circuitry solutions ensure you have ‘everything you need but only what you need’ to reduce unwanted and unnecessary plastic and packaging.
Our circuits come with adapters that can fit a wide variety of CPAP drivers and ventilators. If you want to double check please get in contact with the details of what equipment you use and we can let you know if we are compatible.
Our NeoFlow® circuits are 7-day single patient use.
BioCote® is an ingredient that we add during the manufacturing process, this makes it integral to the structure of the product so it cannot become displaced or harm the baby in any way.
NeoFlow® Neonatal Nasal High Flow Oxygen & CPAP Systems are designed to enable easy transition to and from nCPAP, bubble CPAP and invasive ventilation.
