Respiratory Support

Programme for Non-invasive Respiratory Support

Protecting babies' lungs 

 
This initiative aims to introduce the safest most modern method of respiratory support to be used to help newborns in neonatal wards across the country. This non-invasive method accounts for less trauma to the young and frail breathing system. What is more, it is safe to use on even the smallest newborns. 
 
 



This programme has been launched in 2003, and since then more than over 52 200 infants benefited from the equipment bought for the programme. We run a system recording the use of the "infant-flow" technology which is the largest collection of data in the world! 
 

Key numbers: 

 
We bought 464 "Infant Flow" machines and 140 incubators equipped in "Infant Flow" devices for labour wards.  We also purchased 56 HFO ventilators, 36 respirators with the regulated air pressure supply and 117 HFNC machines. We have donated equipment to 325 neonatal wards across the county!
