A Neonatal Care Product

For babies who can breathe on their own but still require supplemental oxygen, an oxygen hood is employed. 

An oxygen hood is a clear acrylic compartment (that resembles a hood) that encloses an infant’s or young child’s head with cylinders or boxes that fit around the neonate’s head and give warm and humidified oxygen to the infant. 

The oxygen hood simply covers the infant’s head and neck, leaving the rest of his body free to be cared for. 

The hood is a acrylic dome or cage that contains warm, moist oxygen.

Product description: 

When neonates/infants/pediatrics require more oxygen levels than normal, an oxygen hood is commonly used in conjunction with an incubator, an infant radiant warmer, and a baby trolley. It avoids direct flow of cold oxygen. 

It provides a clear vision and an indestructible body with neck adjustment and side openings for patient handling.  It has a single moulded design as well.

For easy visibility, an oxygen hood made of transparent acrylic is used.

Adjustment of the neck port to reduce oxygen waste.

During procedures, there are two side apertures for easy access.

There is an oxygen inlet port and a temperature port for simple access.

For ease visibility, an oxygen hood manufactured of single-mold polycarbonate is used.

Silicon flaps have been fitted to reduce oxygen waste.

There is an oxygen inlet port and a temperature port for simple access.

Small and Medium sizes are available.

There are three sizes to choose from: Infants, Neonates, and Children


The baby’s head is covered by the hood. A nasal cannula, a thin, soft plastic tube, can be used instead of a hood. Soft prongs softly insert into the baby’s nose on this tube. The tube is filled with oxygen. This permits the neonate to get the FiO2 he or she needs to maintain proper oxygen saturation.

Exhaled gas departs predominantly through the neck hole, while oxygen enters through a gas input port. Hoods can supply up to 90% oxygen, as well as good humidification and temperature control.

Hoods give up to 90% oxygen, excellent humidification, and temperature control without the use of pressure.

Hoods can be utilised in a variety of beds for infants of varied sizes.

They make it simple to get to the child for various reasons.

Tents for older children give similar environmental benefits, but allow for less immediate access to the patient and often provide just 21% to 50% oxygen.

For short-term use only.


The amount of oxygen in the inspired gas varies depending on the hood position, the degree of leakage, and the movement of the infant out from under the hood.

It is necessary to maintain a neutral temperature environment by employing warmed gas, especially with premature infants.

When litre flow is high, noise levels may be high.

The ability of the caregiver to see the infant’s face may be obstructed by mist or moisture.

It’s not normally disposable, and it’s hard to clean AND DISINFECT.
