Abstract

The proposed invention discloses a technique for assembling every component required for performing neonatal resuscitation in one central location in the form of a manifold. The components include pressure regulating function which regulates 40 to 80 psi pressure range, on/off switch for controlling supply to the venturi flow, venturi nozzle to create a negative pressure in suction path, a check valve to restrict any positive pressure moving down to the suction path in case of any failure in venturi nozzle, provision of a silencer, connection port for input, pressure measurement and suction output paths. The technique allows the components to be mounted on the manifold.

MANIFOLD CONCEPT FOR SUCTION PROCEDURE FOR NEONATAL RESUSCITATION

FIELD OF INVENTION

The invention generally relates to neonatal intensive care unit and more particularly to a technique for providing suction procedure for neonatal resuscitation.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Generally, suction pressure (vacuum) is created using venturi principle in pnuematics. The required amount of suction is created by varying flow which occurs through a venturi orifice. A suction pressure relief valve is used to limit maximum suction pressure created. It is required to have a provision to avoid any positive pressure that moves towards patient path in case of any failure in venturi device. The venturi system is typically noisy. Therefore, it is required to have silencer to lessen the noise level. Also, neonatal intensive care unit includes a pneumatic switch which cuts off or supply input gas pressure. Further, the unit works on wide range of supply input pressure, typically, in a range of 40 to 80 psi.

In a conventional technique every components which are required to perform nenonatal resuscitation are arranged in a pneumatic circuit and connected with several tubes. However, total sum of the individual parts is very expensive and exceeds product cost target.

Hence there exists a need for a technique that provides every required component necessary for providing neonatal suction in a pneumatic circuit such that entire function of neonatal suction is achieved.
