Together with Ulm University Hospital, Fritz Stephan GmbH has developed an automatic FiO2 control system for stabilizing SpO2 oxygen saturation of the patient.
This oxygen saturation controller “SPOC” is now available for our neonatal ventilation unit SOPHIE. By combining SOPHIE & SPOC with the existing SpO2 monitoring at the clinic double measurement can be avoided. Ventilation units can be equipped with this new technology swiftly and cost efficiently.
SPOC helps to
- Avoid hyperoxia, thus reducing oxidative stress
- Avoid hypoxia, reducing damage to brain tissue and brain haemorrhages
- Reduce SpO2 variation
- Increase the period within the SpO2 target range
- Reduce the number of manual interference from care staff
