Neonatal NICU's have greatly increased the survival of very low birth weight and extremely premature infants. In the era before NICU's, infants of birth weight less than 1400 grams ( 3 lb, usually about 30 weeks gestation) rarely survived. Today, infants of 500 grams ( 1.1 lb.) at 26 weeks have a greater chance of survival.
MEDICOMP'S specially designed, single-patient use cannula is molded from a soft, pliant inert material with two (2) short tubes which are angled for easy, non-irritating insertion into the infant's external nares. An angled flange with a round orifice allows the unit to be attached to the infant's head via the ties from the specially designed CPAP cap. The cap is designed to hold the cannula securely for the majority of infants, as well as providing warmth.
