Neonatal ventilation

  • Best possible care with whole ventilator portfolio
  • All ventilators offer option of noninvasive and invasive ventilation
  • Conventional and advanced ventilation modes for even
    the smallest patients
  • Tidal volumes as low as 2 ml

Having their newborn baby start life in the NICU is something no parent-to-be could ever imagine.
The chances of survival often rest on the availability of adequate ventilaton support. However this
can place significant strain not only on the tiny patient, but also on you as the caregiver.

For more than 30 years we have been developing intelligent ventilation solutions to provide safer
care for all ICU patients, even the tiniest of them. Our aim is to support you as much as we can in
offering those newborns the best possible care with our whole ventilator portfolio.

Benefits for small patients

  • Adjustment of trigger sensitivity for inspiration and expiration
  • IntelliTrig: Automatic adjustment of trigger sensitivity to airway leaks in all modes
  • Integrated high flow oxygen therapy*
  • Tidal volumes as low as 2 ml
  • Patient synchronization with precise measurements from the proximal flow sensor
  • Cross-platform user interface
  • Top-mounted 360°-visible alarm lamp
  • Configurable loops and trends
  • SpO2 and CO2 measurement*


* Optional and not available in all markets

Proximal flow sensor for precise measurements
The proximal flow sensor and expiratory valve enable the precise measurement of pressure and flow directly at the airway opening, ensuring the required sensitivity and a quick response time.

IntelliTrig leak compensation
The IntelliTrig function automatically adjusts the inspiratory and expiratory trigger sensitivity to airway leaks and ensures adaptive synchronization with the patient’s breathing pattern. This is achieved both with invasively and noninvasively ventilated patients.

nCPAP modes
The nCPAP modes are designed in such a way that you only need to set the desired CPAP/PEEP. The flow is subsequently adjusted automatically based on the patient need (demand flow) and variation in leakage, which prevents unintended peak pressures or loss of CPAP/PEEP, and guarantees highly efficient leak compensation.


The HAMILTON-G5 is our most modular high-end mechanical ventilator. A wide range of standard features and options allows you to tailor the device to suit your needs in neonatal ventilation.

The adjustable volume limit ensures that volume-targeted ventilation (APV) and volume-support (VS) modes can be used under leakage conditions commonly seen in preterm babies. APV is an important option for preterm babies to keep the pCO2 in the desired range and to apply a lung-protective ventilation strategy.
The VS mode enables the application of volume-targeted ventilation to spontaneously breathing children.

To prevent an excessively high oxygen saturation, the HAMILTON-G5 offers adjustable O2 enrichment.


HAMILTON-H900 – active humidification

As the respiratory system of neonatal patients is very sensitive, active humidification that ensures physiological conditioning of the airways is essential for protective ventilation. Together with the HAMILTON-H900 humidifier, our ventilators provide heated and humidified medical gases at controlled temperatures.

The HAMILTON-H900 humidifier offers predefined settings and allows for manual adjustment of temperature and humidity settings. You can adapt the humidification settings to suit the special needs of your small patients and the environmental conditions.

The preassembled breathing circuit set can be used up to 28 days per patient and includes a temperature probe, water refill tube, Y-piece, and water chamber. The detachable, nonheated extension allows the use in incubators.



Our compact devices combine the performance of a NICU ventilator with high mobility: They operate independently of a gas supply, can run on batteries, and may be used in special areas like the MR room (HAMILTON-MR1) or for interhospital transport (HAMILTON-T1).

With the full range of modes, these compact ventilators are very flexible. In addition, their turbine promotes optimal leak compensation, which is especially beneficial for noninvasive ventilation (Demirakca 2017, Carteaux 2012).






The HAMILTON-C3 offers a high level of flexibility for the ventilation of neonatal patients. As well as the full range of relevant modes and therapy options, the ventilator is also equipped with a high-performance turbine. This offers very quick, effective leak compensation and thus even better noninvasive ventilation, which is often applied in neonates (Demirakca 2017, Carteaux 2012).
