Innovative Neonatology Ventilator System 

For our new neonatology ventilation system SOPHIE we have cooperated closely with renowned physicians at home and abroad in the successful development of a ventilation system based on the proven first-rate technology of STEPHANIE. However, SOPHIE sets a new standard in terms of efficiency, design and handling. SOPHIE povides all conventional pressure-controlled ventilation modes. The wide range of applications has been supplemented by patient-triggered ventilation PSV together with optional high frequency oscillation.

All settings can be adjusted with just one single rotary knob. The intuitive operating concept guides the user systematically through the ventilation menu. Only those parameters relevant to the chosen ventilation form are visible and can even be adjusted easily to the patient's needs before starting ventilation. Efficient monitoring permits safe supervision at all times.

An additional plus is the high compatibility with STEPHANIE: patient components and tubes as well as sensors are identical, an exchange between both devices is possible without any problems.

Sophie with SPOC automatic SpO2 controller 

In cooperation with Ulm University Hospital, Fritz Stephan GmbH has developed an automatic

FiO2 control system for stabilizing patient SpO2 oxygen saturation. ­ The automatic oxygen saturation controller

“SPOC” is now available for our neonatal ventilation unit SOPHIE. By combining SOPHIE &

SPOC with the existing SpO2 monitoring at your clinic, double measurement can now be avoided and the ventilators can support the operator in keeping saturation stabile and closer to the user defined target SpO2.

Sophie with SNIPPV, synchronized Non-invasive Ventilation (NIV):
The benefits of a non-invasive ventilation therapy for newborn or prematurely born babies have been established by several scientific studies (e.g. COIN
study). The application of NIV permits lung-protective ventilation strategies thus helping reduce the occurrence of air leak syndromes and BPD.
The use of SNIPPV reduces the danger of ventilation failure after extubation and therefore significantly reduces the incidence of reintubation. A newly
developed system of Fritz Stephan GmbH detects the abdominal movement of patients by means of an external respiration sensor. This is then converted into a stable, fast-reacting (<30ms) trigger signal, thus allowing apnea/backup ventilation detection and management, and SNIPPV which can further improve the
efficiency of ventilation.
