More time in range. More time to care.

OAM keeps babies in their prescribed target SpO2 range significantly better than manual control.1

  • Helps easily and accurately maintain SpO2 during stress, movement, and feeding
  • May allow nurses to spend more time with babies and parents and less time changing settings

Precision Flow with Hi-VNI® Technology – The clinically proven, gentler alternative to nCPAP and NiPPV for primary respiratory distress support in neonates.2

  • Facilitates kangaroo care without bulky interfaces
  • Precise control of FiO2 delivery
  • Fast and easy set up

OAM keeps your preterm babies in their SpO2 range longer

In Reynolds et al 2019, OAM automated control maintained the babies’ SpO2 in the target SpO2 range significantly more effectively than manual control, and reduced the duration of hypoxic and hyperoxic episodes.1
