Jet Ventilation Now At HCA Florida Brandon Hospital NICU

The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at HCA Florida Brandon Hospital has made a major step to the highest level of care for respiratory distress in preterm babies. The NICU now utilizes jet ventilation, which provides the most advanced and gentle care compared to a traditional ventilator, for the youngest patients in the level III NICU.

Neonatologists say babies born between approximately 500-1250 grams (1-3 pounds) with lung disease due to prematurity, respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) or a lung collapse benefit from jet ventilation. Brandon Hospital’s NICU patients now have access to this advanced care technology, which eliminates the need for the youngest patients to face the risks associated with a transfer to another facility. This gentle ventilation helps support the lungs of preterm babies so they can grow and develop in Brandon Hospital’s level III NICU.

The hospital is located at 119 Oakfield Dr. in Brandon. For more information, visit www.hcafloridabrandonhospital.com.
