especially designed for the non-invasive ventilation of preterm infants or newborn infants predisposed with lung disease.
Safe and reliable
WILAflow Elite allows proximal pressure monitoring without being affected by mechanical dead space in the closed loop and compliance. The device accurately measures patient’s airway pressure. This is the most recognizable method in the industry.
Optional Abdominal Respiratory Sensor available
The respiratory abdominal sensor enables the clinician to monitor for apnea/low breath rate in both nCPAP and BiPhasic modes.
The accessories include the reusable transducer and single-patient-use abdominal sensor. In the BiPhasic trigger mode, the respiratory abdominal sensor and transducer allow patient-triggered pressure assists with breath rate monitoring.
“Adequate humidification is essential to maintain airway clearance, optimize ventilation and improve patient comfort.”
Heated humidification is recommended for nCPAP therapy The normal functions of the nose and air passages of the respiratory tract are to warm, moisten and filter the inhaled gases before they reach the lungs. In normal respiration, the nasal mucosa and upper airways provide 75% of the heat and moisture supplied to the smaller airways and alveoli. By the time air reaches the alveoli, the inspired gas warms to 37°C at 100% relative humidity (RH).
With nCPAP, the upper airways are not bypassed, but the high gas flows may be drying to the airways, especially to a neonate’s underdeveloped lung.
