UTMD's specialized neonatology and pediatric devices are used for blood filtration, chest drainage, long-term enteral feeding, lumbar puncture, respiratory care, orotracheal protection, peripheral catheterization, peritoneal dialysis, umbilical catheterization and urinay drainage.
Hemo-Nate® micro filtration of stored blood for neonatal and pediatric patients is essential since blood, blood components and other fluids indicated for filtration break down over time resulting in particulate debris (micro aggregates) that can produce significant changes to neonatal pulmonary function, including pneumonia.+ Learn more
Thora-Cath® chest drainage relieves the accumulation of air or blood in the neonatal pleural space resulting from pneumothorax or hemothorax. This condition does not allow the lung to inflate, which can be fatal if not treated. In a situation like this, a chest tube is inserted to provide drainage from the space between the lung and chest wall.
Nutri-Cath® is an indwelling nasogastric, orogastric or nasojejunal enteral feeding catheter for continuous or intermittent neonatal or pediatric feedings up to thirty days’ duration. Its use avoids multiple and frequent feeding tube placements that are likely to be traumatic to delicate tissues.
Myelo-Nate® neonatal/pediatric lumbar puncture needles and kits provide access to the spinal column for the purpose of obtaining a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) sample for diagnostic analysis. The short bevel design with Quincke type needle minimizes trauma and infiltration by spreading and displacing rather than cutting through the dura mater.+ Learn more
Disposa-Hood™ was designed to provide precise oxygenation with laminar FiO2 distribution and effective CO2 flushing, to maintain control of a neutral thermal environment important for respiratory function, and to provide access for timely therapy and avoidance of cross-contamination not possible with an incubator unit.+ Learn more
Pala-Nate® is a soft silicone palatal insert that protects a neonate during intubation. The adverse effects of prolonged intubation are numerous and can have permanent negative consequences in speech, dental and orofacial development.
PICC-Nate® is used for central venous catheter indwelling longevity while minimizing neonatal trauma. Multiple special design features have been incorporated at clinician request including developmentally friendly materials, low profile and extended hub configurations and intracorporeal positioning aids.
Because critically-ill pediatric patients are unlikely to have adequate blood volume and vasculature to support hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis is an effective therapy to help correct for inadequate renal function. Dialy-Nate® is a preassembled, closed system including all medical device components needed to perform timely peritoneal dialysis.+ Learn more
Umbili-Cath™ single, dual and triple lumen umbilical vein/artery catheters (UVC) allow continuous pressure monitoring while administering medications, volume expanders and antibiotics.
Uri-Cath™ urinary drainage catheters are used to obtain urine cultures and accurate urine outputs from neonatal and pediatric patients. The silicone material of Uri-Cath™ minimizes urethral irritation and encrustation.
The Neonatal/Pediatric Deltran® Plus blood pressure monitoring and arterial blood collection system incorporates an entirely closed system using needleless technology designed specifically to conserve blood and protect the neonatal patient from infection.+ Learn more
