SAM e.p.s Neonatal

MGE's SAM e.p.s NeoNatal suction unit is a specialist suction unit has been developed to specifically address the very low suction requirements needed for procedures that are carried out on neonates \ new born babies.

The Neonatal version of MGE's SAM e.p.s portable suction unit was developed following discussions with the Acute Neonatal Transfer Service (ANTS) team based on the Addenbrooke's hospital campus in Cambridge, UK. The team were in the process of renewing their ambulance fleet and could not find a suitable suction solution that specifically addressed the needs of the neonates \ new borns that they are responsible for transporting. Once MGE understood what the limitations were with the existing standard suction units available in the market, we identified that our SAM e.p.s unit could be tailored to suit ANTS specific needs and the SAM e.p.s NeoNatal unit was conceived.

Following a successful trial period, the unit is now fitted in all of the new ANTS ambulances supplying transport services between different hospital sites in the South East of England. The new near silent unit not only solved their simple problem of suction being too noisy but has also enabled them to perform procedures during transportation that they previously were unable to carry out.

As the unit is portable and battery operated, it is suitable for any Neonatal transport process, either externally between sites, fitted in ambulances, or internally within the hospital mounted on Noenatal transport trolleys.

This SAM unit also uses MGE disposable hydrophobic filters to give maximum protection.
