Fritz Stephan GmbH Germany, has been providing innovative medical technology by constantly setting new standards in artificial respiration and oxygen supply systems since 1978. Particular emphasis is placed on the manufacturing of respirators for premature infants and newborns. The requirements for medical devices for treatment of infants differ fundamentally from those for adult use; hereby, artificial respiration must be as gentle as possible whilst taking all physiological differences into consideration. Recent improvements and the integration of a module for automatic oxygen saturation control in respirators, thus improving the treatment of premature infants, is just one of the many examples of how Stephan innovations result in the advancement of lifesaving technology.
The major challenge in non-invasive ventilation (NIV) of newborns and premature infants is the adjustment of ventilation and oxygen saturation to the current patient situation in real time. This is exactly what SOPHIE does automatically. Thanks to the latest sensor technology, the device immediately recognizes if ventilation changes and adjusts therapy parameters accordingly. In addition, you have the option of activating high-frequency oscillation (HFO) without changing the patient tube system if the child’s situation so requires. HFO is included with Sophie as well as a powerful humidification system.
Easy Flow nCPAP
When it comes to optimal ventilation of premature and newborns, it is not only necessary to have powerful systems that meet the specific requirements of neonatology to a high degree. Likewise, the accessories have to fit snugly and be easy to use. Like the prongs and masks of our EasyFlow system accessories, harmonizing perfectly with both our ventilators as well as third party manufactured ventilators.
Conventional ventilator, high frequency oscillator and humidifier. Sophie is capable of providing the essentials for the care of premature infants in this environment and allows activation and deactivation of functions depending on your needs and the situation.
• Rapid adaptation of ventilation therapy to the child’s situation
• No disconnection caused by unnecessary changes of the patient tube system
• Easy, fast and safe through an intuitive operating concept
Children have different head sizes and grow quickly. Our system accessories are optimally suited:
• Available in various different sizes: nasal prongs, masks and headbands
• Adjustable length and/or height: prong and mask via magnet and headbands
• Easy to use: self-adhesive forehead pads requiring no additional fixation can be applied immediately after birth using Velcro fasteners and fixing straps
