The Infant Respiratory Care Continuum

Resuscitation
 

The aim of newborn resuscitation is to establish effective spontaneous breathing or assist ventilation of the lungs within the first few minutes of life. 

Invasive ventilation 

Invasive ventilation is a mode of respiratory support that replaces spontaneous breathing in neonates and infants, with an artificial airway such as an endotracheal tube.

CPAP 
 

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a mode of noninvasive respiratory support that provides a continuous distending pressure throughout the respiratory cycle to spontaneously breathing patients.

Nasal high flow (NHF)

NHF is a mode of noninvasive respiratory support that delivers high flows of blended air and oxygen through a nasal cannula.

Humidification across the infant respiratory care continuum

At Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, we offer humidified respiratory solutions to provide care for a range of patients across the infant respiratory care continuum.
