Upright Newborn Bag-Mask

A self-inflating, manual and reusable newborn bag-mask intended for newborns and infants who require respiratory support.

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 design improves mask seal by helping users provide even downward pressure onto mask.
  • Newborn Mask prevents mask leak by enabling better seal. Mask sizes 0 and 1 included.
  • Translucent materials allow visual inspection of cleanliness and valve function.
  • Increased bag volume to help compensate for mask leakage and air released through pop-off safety valve.
  • Compatible with NeoNatalie Simulator for neonatal resuscitation training.
  • Oxygen kit available upon request.

Research has shown that mask leakage during ventilations of preterms with standard newborn bag-masks varies from 24-59%. Upright newborn bag-mask addresses this through its vertical design and an improved mask. Studies have shown that Upright has significantly less mask leak than other bag-mask resuscitators and that it is easier to ventilate with. Another study showed that Upright disassembly was faster than other bag-mask resuscitators and that it is easier to reassemble correctly.
