Tawam Hospital introduces new mechanical ventilation technology

21 July 2010

Tawam Hospital in Al-Ain, in partnership with Johns Hopkins Medicine, has introduced a new therapeutic technology to its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory Assist (NAVA) technology is a new mode of assisted mechanical ventilation that enables the brain of the patient, in this case a premature baby, to control the mechanical ventilator. NAVA technology uses electrical diaphragmatic activity (EDA) to adjust ventilator support according to a patient's personal needs.
