Product Summary

The expanded capabilities of the Infant Flow® SiPAP™ Plus and Comprehensive* configurations combined with outstanding performance of the Infant Flow Generator may offer certain benefits when compared with conventional nasal CPAP and allow for applications to a broader range of patients who may otherwise not be candidates for non-invasive respiratory support from NCPAP alone

CPAP Therapy

CPAP therapy should deliver a constant, stable pressure to the infant's airways, facilitating restoration of FRC and correction of hypoxemia. Infant Flow®, with its unique, patented generator design delivers stable, non-invasive CPAP therapy in harmony with the infant's own respiratory efforts by using Fluidic Flip technology and the Coanda Effect. Infant Flow® has revolutionized the care of infants with respiratory disease, and is recognized the world over as a way to provide gentle and effective non-invasive respiratory support. The evolution of Infant Flow continues with the Infant Flow® SiPAP™.

Introducing Infant Flow® SiPAP™

While many tiny babies born with severe lung disease and other complications of prematurity require invasive ventilatory support, certain patients may benefit from a non-invasive approach incorporating bi-level nasal CPAP and avoid the need for intubation. Still others may be successfully weaned from invasive ventilation earlier with a bi-level approach. Infant Flow® SiPAP™ provides bi-level nasal CPAP for the spontaneously breathing neonate through delivery of sighs above a baseline NCPAP pressure. These sighs may be timed, at a rate specified by the clinician, or *triggered by the patient's own inspiratory efforts.
