Neotech’s revolutionary Meconium Aspirator, which appears in the “Textbook of Neonatal Resuscitation,” has created a safer way to aspirate meconium from newborns’ lungs. It is conveniently compatible with most endotracheal tubes, comes in both clear and yellow, and features a suction control port for use when infants need intermittent suctioning for safety. Clinicians praise it for its ease of use and its 20-year track record of safe application.
Step 1 Connect barbed end of Neotech Meconium Aspirator to suction line.
Step 2 Set the suction pressure at 80mm Hg or less.
Step 3 Intubate patient with proper ET tube.
Step 4 Connect 15mm I.D. end of Neotech Meconium Aspirator to 15mm O.D. ET tube adapter.
Step 5 Block thumb port with thumb to begin suctioning.
Step 6 Suction for two seconds or less at a time until meconium is full removed. Suction meconium intermittently.
Note: For intermittent suctioning, unblock thumb port to stop suctioning. Block thumb port again to continue suctioning.
Step 7 Continue to suction while ET tube is withdrawn.
Step 8 Discard after use.
