LAERDAL PENGUIN SUCTION DEVICE
Babies’ nasal passages can become blocked for many reasons including exposure to viruses or irritation from allergens. Clogged nasal passages can interfere with babies’ ability to feed, and in very young newborns, their ability to breathe.
Designed to clear babies’ airways, the Penguin is made of one piece of silicone making it easy to clean and durable, able to withstand hundreds of uses. The Penguin was developed to support basic newborn resuscitation courses like Helping Babies Breathe, aimed at improving newborn outcomes in developing countries.
