The ergonomic orientation of the bag-mask, and the new and improved Newborn Mask, are designed to make it easier to obtain mask seal and provide effective ventilations.
Available with the NeoNatalie Complete kit or can be ordered separately.
Upright Bag Mask gave significantly less mask leakage and slightly more lung volume than the standard resuscitator. (Thallinger, 2015)
Clinical study in Tanzania comparing standard with Upright (same newborn mask) showed improved outcomes with Upright (Thallinger, 2017)
A manikin study with inexperienced nursing and medical students found that the new resuscitator and facemask provided significantly less mask leakage (46% vs 60%, p<0.001) than the traditional design. (Thallinger, 2016)
The new Upright design was rated significantly better (p<.05) by participants than the standard resuscitator on apparent durability, ease of holding mask, ease of use (general), ease of disassembly and ease of assembly, but significantly less on ability to observe chest rise. (Coffey, 2015)
The upright resuscitator was easier to use, had significantly higher acceptability across all 14 ergonomic measures by both types of users, and was identified as the preferred device by the majority of users. (Quintanar-Solares, 2017)
