Neo-Pod T Neonatal Transport Humidification System
The Neo-Pod™ “T” Neonatal Transport Humidification System, with improved LavaBed™ humidifier cartridge is designed to deliver heated and humidified breathing gases during transports of infants receiving mechanical ventilation, high-flow nasal cannula, or CPAP.
The Neo-Pod “T” maintains proper conditioning of inspiratory gas during brief as well as lengthy transport situations to help maintain the infant’s neutral thermal environment and prevent inspissation of airway secretions. Adequate inspired gas temperatures are associated with a lower incidence of pneumothorax and a decreased severity of chronic lung disease in ventilated very low birth weight infants. Mechanical ventilation during transport, even bagging, without humidification, can result in heat loss through the lungs, making proper thermoregulation more difficult.
One Size Fits All
Inspired by the unique needs of the neonatal transport team and their patients, the Neo-Pod “T” is the first disposable active humidification device designed to operate with virtually all ventilation/incubation systems used in neonatal transport. Compact, lightweight and energy efficient, the Neo-Pod “T” provides the proper heat and humidification of inspiratory gas to help maintain patient body temperature, while preventing drying of airway secretions during mechanical ventilation, nCPAP, or when using high flow nasal cannula oxygen delivery.
