Neotech’s RAM Cannula features soft, gently curved prongs designed for patient comfort. Its flexible design helps caregivers position an infant or child in developmentally appropriate sitting or lying positions. The RAM Cannula is available in seven sizes. All sizes are color-coded and include a 15-millimeter oxygen tubing adapter for use with low-flow or high-flow humidified oxygen.

Step 2 Attach 15 mm oxygen tubing adapter (provided) to RAM cannula. Attach cannula to oxygen source.
Note: Ensure all cannula connections are properly secured.

Note: Allow small gap between patient’s septum and base of prongs.
Step 5 Secure cannula to face with EZ-Hold® Tubing and Cannula Holder or comparable product.
Step 6 Replace Neotech RAM Cannula every 14 days or per hospital protocol, whichever is sooner.
