Central Medical Supplies (CMS), a specialist supplier of neonatal and maternity products, is the new sole UK distributor for Neo-Pod™ “T”, a neonatal transport humidification system. CMS has recently partnered with Westmed, which produces Neo-Pod™ “T”, and will be distributing the company’s neonatal products in the UK.
Neo-Pod™ “T” is designed to deliver heated and humidified breathing gases to infants receiving mechanical ventilation, high-flow nasal cannula or CPAP, while they are being transported either within or outside a hospital. Neo-Pod™ “T” is the first disposable active humidification device designed to operate with virtually all ventilation and incubation systems used in neonatal transport. The compact and light design of Neo-Pod™ “T” makes it ideal for transport environments with space and weight constraints.
The energy efficient Neo-Pod™ “T” system is simple to set up and easy to use. The system maintains the necessary condition of inspiratory gas, during both short and lengthy transportation, to help maintain an infant’s neutral thermal environment and prevent inspissation of airway secretions. Adequate inspired gas temperatures are associated with a lower incidence of pneumothorax and a decreased severity of chronic lung disease in ventilated very low birth weight infants.
