Pressure Safe™

Neonatal High Flow Heated Humidification Nasal Cannula

The New Measure of Safety in Neonatal High Flow Oxygen Delivery    

The Pressure Safe™ High Flow Cannula is designed to mitigate high pressure changes that may cause barotrauma conditions. A unique pressure-limiting Pop-Off feature prevents airway pressure from exceeding 21 cm H2O.  The required pressure phases of high flow therapy are now clearly controlled and observed with Pressure Safe.

In addition, the patented Comfort Soft Plus® medical elastomeric formulation minimizes cannula friction on the patient’s skin. This produces a greater wear comfort and safeguards against epidermal stripping that can occur from traditional PVC cannulas and/or adhesive securement tape use.

Now Available with Pressure Manometer0886 Pressure Safe (DSCF1381)
