Upright with PEEP Overview
A self-inflating, manual and reusable bag-mask intended for newborns and infants who require respiratory support. By introducing positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP), Upright with PEEP Newborn Bag-Mask can help prevent repeated lung alveolar collapse during ventilation, helping recruit lung volume more efficiently, clear fluid from the lungs and reduce damage to the lung tissue.
PEEP is the current standard of care in high-resource settings and is recommended by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) for premature newborns.
A study in Tanzania showed that inexperienced participants were able to generate PEEP with Upright with PEEP without an external gas source. Additionally, the study proved that PEEP was generated even when high mask leak was present. These studies point to the feasibility and effectiveness of using PEEP even in low resources settings.
