Air and oxygen blenders


Recommended Posts

I wonder which blenders you are using to deliver NCPAP to extremely preterm infants. Between the Medin Blender 1090 and NEO2 blend of Bio-med, I am not sure which one is better in terms of cost, durability and stability. We cannot afford the Infant Flow at the moment. Do you have any recommendation?

Hi Stefan,

Thanks, maybe they are not too different to raise any concern. :)

Now we are thinking about the interface for NCPAP. Could we combine the Nuflow cannula (a modified RAM cannula) and the reusable Medijet system with pressure monitoring? The Nuflow cannula is convenient in routine care but is mainly used for high flow nasal cannula, whereas we also want to provide an adequate and stable PEEP (i.e PEEP 6 - 8 cmH2O). Further, regarding the resistance of the system, I am not sure which one, RAM cannula attached to a reusable Medijet versus a disposable Medijet, is exerting higher work of breathing among preterm infants.
