Specially designed for non-invasive ventilation of premature babies or newborns predisposed to lung disease.
Safe and reliable
The WILAflow Elite allows proximal pressure monitoring without being affected by mechanical dead space in a closed loop and compliance. The device accurately measures the pressure in the patient's airway. It is the most recognizable method in the industry.
An optional abdominal respiratory sensor is available
The Abdominal Respiratory Sensor allows the physician to monitor apnea/low respiratory rate in both nCPAP and BiPhasic modes. Accessories include a reusable sensor and a disposable abdominal sensor for patient use. In BiPhasic triggered mode, the respiratory abdominal transducer and transducer allow patient-triggered pressure assists with respiratory rate monitoring.
Heated humidification is recommended for nCPAP therapy The normal function of the nose and airway is to heat, humidify and filter inhaled gases before they reach the lungs. In normal breathing, the nasal mucosa and upper airways provide 75% of the heat and moisture delivered to the smaller airways and alveoli. By the time the air reaches the alveoli, the inhaled gas is heated to 37 °C at 100 % relative humidity (RH). In nCPAP, the upper airways are not bypassed, but high gas flows can be drying to the airways, especially for underdeveloped lungs
