Quickly adjust resistance, compliance, leak percentage and overdistention threshold.
Demonstrate the impact of leaks on your ventilator’s tidal volume and minute ventilation as well as flow-sensing triggers.
This simple tool creates visual impressions that last.
- Demonstrate patient inspiratory effort and ventilator response in assisted modes with highly pliable silicone bellows.
- Show overdistention with volume limit brackets.
- Demonstrate high-frequency ventilation
- Enhance instruction on ventilator graphics.

A: Yes. NeoLung provides a very strong visual impression and is thus a good tool for demonstrating high-frequency ventilation.
A: NeoLung comes equipped with two over-distension brackets which limit the expansion of the bellows. Because there are two brackets, you can simulate two levels of over-distension.
A: You can use NeoLung with any ventilator you would use on a neonatal patient. You connect the lung via an ET-tube, just as you would a real patient.
A: NeoLung would not get contaminated in normal use and would only need a wipe-down with a damp cloth. However, you can bath-disinfect NeoLung using any commercially available disinfectant that is rated compatible with the more sensitive plastic materials: Lexan, Acetal, Copolyester, Polycarbonate, Vinyl/Urethane Elastomer. Heat is not recommended (no autoclave).
