Ambu is a dedicated partner within neonatal care. The neonatal patient is exceptionally fragile and sensitive. Special care has therefore been taken with all of our products for neonates so that they provide the same high level of quality and reliability as our adult models, yet also taking the increased vulnerability and delicacy of the neonate patient into account – our Ambu Mark IV Baby Resuscitator is just one example.
More than half a century ago Ambu invented the first self-inflating resuscitator: The “Ambu bag”. We are still dedicated to the development of innovative products that help save lives and simplify the daily life of doctors and nurses working with neonatal care.
For the neonatal patient Ambu offers a variety of products – from the indispensable SPUR resuscitator to our cardiac electrodes. The ECG electrodes for neonatology are designed to withstand some of the most demanding conditions in the hospital – 38°C heat and 80% humidity inside an incubator. Even so, our electrodes are gentle on the delicate skin of the premature baby. And naturally they are all disposable products that help save precious time in critical situations and minimise the risk of cross-contamination – always a key concern.
For training, the Ambu Baby is remarkable for both its natural appearance and its natural function – ventilation can only take place when the head is correctly positioned. These features help give healthcare providers the reassurance needed to perform basic life support when helping real babies.
