Oxygen Delivery Hoods, Infant, Disposable
Definition : Infant oxygen delivery hoods designed for a single use (i.e., disposable devices). These hoods typically consist of a rigid transparent plastic shell that encloses the infant's head; the hoods include a diffuser to prevent oxygen from blowing directly on the infant and may also include temperature, humidity, and oxygen concentration sensors. The hoods are connected to the oxygen source using tubes or hoses. Disposable infant oxygen delivery hoods are used to administer high volumes (usually 10-15 liters per minute) of oxygen at high concentration (80% to 90%) under controlled humidity and temperature conditions; they are typically used for newborns and children younger than two years who can breathe on their own but need extra oxygen.
