Upright and the new Newborn Masks (size 0 and 1) are designed to make it easier to obtain mask seal and provide effective ventilations. It is available with the NeoNatalie Complete kit, and can also be ordered separately.
- Dominant hand holds the bag, and helps the user provide an even, downward pressure onto the mask.
- Upright has a thicker and broader top surface than most other masks, and its unique design makes it easier to hold the mask correctly, enabling a better mask seal.
- Upright has fewer parts (total 6) compared to other resuscitators (typically 9 – 12), making Upright significantly easier to disassemble and reassemble correctly.
- The silicone bag can be folded for reduced volume during transportation.
- Can be high-level disinfected in low-resource settings, it can also be sterilized by autoclaving.
