Protect the lungs, brain and diaphragm with every tiny breath

Do you ever get neonates that are not quite in sync with standard pressure and volume settings? Babies that are sleeping erratically and wasting valuable energy? For these fragile ones, tailoring just the right level of ventilatory support – without over- or under-assist – is a delicate balance.[1][2] Servo-n makes it easier to assess this balance[3], allowing you to act on almost any situation – from delivery to discharge.

1. Assess respiratory needs with the Edi vital sign

Want to monitor your baby’s respiratory drive – from day zero? Literally see what it needs, in any mode, right in your lower screen? On Servo-n, this is possible with our unique Edi diaphragmatic monitoring.[3] It gives you valuable insights about the presence or absence of spontaneous breaths, patient effort, over- and under-assist, patient-ventilator asynchrony, sedation, patient positioning and apnea of prematurity.

2. Prevent intubation with unique NIV-NAVA therapy

If Nasal CPAP is not enough to support babies on non-invasive ventilation, NIV NAVA® offers a viable alternative. Studies show that it may increase the chance of NIV success[4],[5],[6],[7] and reduce the need for intubation[4],[5] and sedation. [1],[14],[15] NIV NAVA is leakage independent[8], it improves short-term physiological effects and comfort[9][10], and it lowers work of breathing.[11]

3. Protect and stabilize with personalized NAVA mode

With our unique Neurally Adjusted Ventilator Assist (NAVA) mode, you can personalize the neonatal support with every breath. When babies are on this mode, they tend to choose lower pressure[12] and tidal volumes with improved compliance[13] and comfort[14], improving their blood gases and oxygenation.[15] And if the babies need controlled ventilation, PRVC is there for you.

4. Rescue with HFOV that offers a difference

In critical cases such as apnea, it’s good to know you’ve got built-in HFOV. This way, you can quickly start the therapy without losing mean airway pressure or having to hook up a separate bulky unit. To reduce work of breathing, it relies on the inertia of air in the patient circuit when the pressure at airway opening is modified rapidly – combined with very rapidly responding inspiratory valves and high-flow capacity.

5. Wean from ventilation – gently and individually

Edi makes it possible to follow the patient’s progress from invasive to non-invasive ventilation (NIV, nasal CPAP and High-Flow therapy) and beyond on the same machine.[3]NAVA and NIV NAVA are especially useful during weaning. It can help you maintain diaphragm activity[10], avoid over- or under-assist[2] and reduce sedation.[15] This may limit diaphragm atrophy and facilitate earlier extubation.[1],[2],[16],[17],

Servo-n Neonatal Ventilator comes with a pediatric option (PICU)

Extend your treatment to pediatrics and other ventilators

While the Servo-n is mainly intended for advanced care of the most fragile neonates, it comes with a pediatric option to extend its capabilities to the PICU. Or, if your primary ventilatory need is for ICU patients, the Servo-u ventilator can be extended with a neonatal option.

Additional therapies

Heliox therapy promotes a smoother airflow and easier work of breathing in a typical asthma patient

Heliox therapy for infants

Newborns weighing 3 kg or more who are experiencing airway obstruction (e.g. due to bronchiolitis or asthma) can now be treated with Heliox therapy*. Heliox is a mix of helium and oxygen that, due to its low density, facilitates laminar flow and minimizes airway pressure. Safe and easy to use, it can help these tiny ones reduce the work of breathing (WoB) and soothe obstructed airways.[18]

Safe, reliable and easy to use

The Servo-n has an integrated Aerogen nebulizer that can be used with Heliox therapy. Together, they can help improve aerosol deposition, resulting in up to 50% more drug delivered. This is primarily due to helium’s lower density than air or oxygen, meaning less gas turbulence and less aerosol-particle-impaction loss in the tubing and patient airways.[19],[20],[21],[22]

Top London neonatal expert shares his NICU’s best practices

As Consulting Neonatologist at St George’s University Hospital in London, Dr. Sandeep Shetty (MBBS, DCH, DNB, FRCPCH, MDre) is always looking for better ways to advance respiratory care for babies. In this video, he shares some of his team’s latest approaches to both invasive and non-invasive ventilation, including using NIV-NAVA and NAVA.

Imagine being able to see and deliver what your patients want, while their own natural respiratory drive controls the ventilator. We call it Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory Assist (NAVA). It is based on close monitoring of the output of the patient’s respiratory center, by capturing the electrical signal that activates the diaphragm (Edi), using a dedicated gastric feeding tube (Edi catheter). NAVA shortens the time of mechanical ventilation[3] and increases the number of ventilator-free days[3] [4] [5] by providing personalized ventilation that is both lung- and diaphragm-protective.
