What is an oxygen hood for babies?
An oxygen hood or head box is used for babies who can breathe on their own but still need extra oxygen. A hood is a plastic dome or box with warm, moist oxygen inside. The hood is placed over the baby’s head. A thin, soft, plastic tube called a nasal cannula may be used instead of a hood.
What is the appropriate oxygen flow range for an infant hood?
For nasal prong oxygen without humidification a maximum flow of: 2 LPM in infants/children under 2 years of age. 4 LPM for children over 2 years of age. 1 LPM for neonates.
How much oxygen does a hood give?
80% to 90% oxygen
Hoods provide up to 80% to 90% oxygen, good humidification, and controlled temperature.
What are the 3 oxygen delivery methods?
Endotracheal tube (ETT) insertion (intubation)
Supraglottic airway (e.g. laryngeal mask airway [LMA], i-Gel)
How long do NICU babies stay on oxygen?
Some premature babies develop lung damage, called BPD. This happens when the baby’s lungs haven’t had time to develop properly and they needs extra oxygen for at least 28 days after birth to help them breathe.
