Equipment in newborn care units are highly specialised. Without proper knowledge and skills, this equipment can be potentially dangerous for the infants, families and care providers. Join AMEK & NEST360 as we explore the operation, use and maintenance of essential newborn technologies.

Topic: Suction Pumps

When: September 30, 2021 at 10:00 – 11:30 AM (EAT/Kenyan Time)

Experts: Engr. Vincent Ochieng (Kenya) & Dr. June Madete (Kenya)

Suctioning is an essential procedure within multiple hospital settings. In newborn care units, suction pumps are used to remove obstructions from blood or secretions in the mouth, nose or upper airway. A suction pump uses an internal pump to create a partial vacuum in a collection reservoir through which suction fluid is collected.

Topic: Oxygen Concentrator

When: October 1, 2021 at 10:00 – 11:30 AM (EAT/Kenyan Time)

Experts: Engr. George Banda (Malawi)

Oxygen concentrators are one of the most commonly used sources of oxygen therapy, concentrating 85-95.5% oxygen from ambient air using two sieve beds containing a substance that adsorbs nitrogen at high pressures.
