Penguin - 1

1.5 Reusable neonatal suction system Product QUALITIES Actual need WHO estimates that nearly 1 million newborns in low and middle income countries die from birth asphyxia each year. A similar number are disabled due to 1 inadequate breathing at birth. To stimulate spontaneous breathing, or perform bag-mask ventilation effectively, an open airway is mandatory. Often this requires 2,3 clearing the mouth and nose of mucous and meconium using vacuum. Design • Ergonomic shape allows convenient one hand operation • Inviting non-clinical look as represented by a friendly penguin • Easy opening and closure in connection with emptying and cleaning • One-part design requires no disassembly/reassembly Current situation Whereas available neonatal suction devices available cannot be cleaned for reuse, budgets generally prevent 4 single patient use. Meeting a challenge UN’s Millennium Development Goal No 4 (MDG 4) aims at reducing the mortality of children, including newborns, by 2/3 by 2015. To help reach the MDG 4 we have developed a new neonatal suction device which is clinically effective, easy and safe to use, available at a low price and can be reused for multiple patients over a very long period of time. This device is also suitable for large scale training of birth attendants. Material • See-through silicone rubber permits immediate visual inspection of any suctioned matter • Can be cleaned in high temperatures by methods including boiling and autoclaving • Soft beak shaped nozzle will not hurt baby’s mouth and nostrils • Withstands aging and discoloring during storage over extended periods of time Cleaning • Penguin head can easily be flipped to the side to allow easy emptying of suctioned matter during use, and can as easily and quickly be flipped back for continued suction • After mechanical removal of debris boiling in water for 10 min. has been 5 documented to provide effective decontamination to be safely ready for reuse Effectiveness • Meets recommendations of providing vacuum of up to 100 mmHG (136 cmH2O) Affordability • Low purchase price and use for high numbers of patients over years make this suction device most suitable for general use in low income countries. • Also ideal for large scale sponsor facilitated distribution on a not-for-profit basis.
