Common Questions



A T-piece, such as SafeT, is a recommended device by the American Heart Association and American Academy for Pediatrics for neonatal and newborn resuscitation. It is designed specifically for use on patients weighing less than 10 kg / 22 lb.


Clinicians responsible for providing care for newborns and babies in the NICU and in the labor/delivery suite should choose SafeT when responding to emergency resuscitation episodes.


The AHA and AAP do not endorse any specific brand of T-piece resuscitator. However, they do recommend the use of a T-piece resuscitator for neonate and newborn resuscitation. A T-piece, such as SafeT, is a recommended device by the American Heart Association and American Academy for Pediatrics for neonatal and newborn resuscitation. It is designed specifically for use on patients weighing less than 10 kg / 22 lb.


SafeT is designed to be a safe solution for responding to emergency resuscitation episodes. Most importantly, the clinician can consistently deliver pre-set PIP and PEEP pressures to the patient unlike self-inflating and hyperinflation devices. Additionally, with an integrated manometer, SafeT helps prevent over-pressurization of babies’ fragile lungs. The ease of set up and use of SafeT enables the clinician to quickly respond to resuscitation emergencies.


Unlike a self-inflating/BVM or hyperinflation system, the PIP pressure can be pre set prior to use. Also, the SafeT does not require hand compressions to manually deliver the breath.


While other T-piece devices also include a manometer, the SafeT manometer is integrated directly above the patient valve. This is enables either a right- or left-handed clinician to resuscitate without obstructing the view of the manometer and the patient’s face.


One of the advantages of using SafeT over a BVM or hyperflation is ease of set up and use. To set up, simply attach the universal O2 connector (Fits-All) to the gas source and set flow. Next, adjust PIP and PEEP settings; this preparation for use takes only seconds. Continuous flow oxygen combined with pre-set PIP and PEEP makes use very easy and consistent.


Flow rate is controlled by setting the flowmeter to achieve desired PIP and PEEP settings. 10 LPM is a good starting point.


The inspiratory pressure controller has a blue dial that is turned by hand to adjust flow rate. The controller label indicates low to high pressure.


Yes. Small adjustments are recommended.


That’s ok. The SafeT comes standard with a red Fits-All universal oxygen connector which can simply be pressed on the DISS male connector.


Yes. If pressure reaches 40cm of H2O, it is activated.


The circuit tubing can expand to approximately 18”.


The blue PEEP dial adjacent to the manometer can be turned clockwise to increase PEEP and counter-clockwise to decrease PEEP.


Your choice of six cushion masks are available with the SafeT: X-small neonate, small neonate, neonate SoftSeal, small infant, infant, and infant SoftSeal.


No. At this time the SafeT is not suitable for use in the MRI suite.


No. The SafeT T-piece resuscitator is a single use device. It cannot be reused.
