Nanny is extremely reliable

doc. MUDr. Hana Houstkova, CSc.

The Nanny breathing monitor is a certified medical device according to Act No. 268/2014 Coll. To succeed in the approval process, it had to successfully pass independent clinical trials developed by doc. MUDr. Hana Houstkova, CSc. Head of IPVZ Pediatric Clinic, 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, Thomayer Hospital, Prague. Hana Houstkova is one of the leading Czech specialists in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and has more than 40 years of experience in the field.

"I think Nanny breathing monitor is extremely safe, trouble-free and reliable, based on its long-term deployment in our clinical practice and the results of clinical trials," says doc. MUDr. Hana Houstkova, CSc.

When to use Nanny

According to Czech and foreign paediatricians, a breathing monitor is essential in situations where the infant suffers from:

  • proven sleep apnea that lasted more than 20 seconds,
  • apnea with bradycardia (slow heart rate)
  • apnea due to premature birth,
  • ALTE events,
  • breathing disorders,
  • bradycardia when treated with caffeine, theophylline and similar drugs,
  • whooping cough,
  • muscle weakness,
  • return of the contents of the stomach to the oesophagus or mouth (gastroesophageal reflux),
  • chronic pulmonary disease,
  • neurological or metabolic disorders affecting respiratory control,
  • tracheostomy or anatomical anomalies that cause respiratory vulnerability.

Monitoring breathing is also essential if one of the baby’s siblings died as a result of sudden infant death syndrome.

"It is important to realize that a breathing monitor is also essential for children with a low birth weight, but this does not mean that "healthy" children don’t need it. Parents may decide on preventive monitoring for a variety of reasons, including non-medical ones. If the mother is fully engaged in caring for other children and the household, she cannot keep an eye on the infant all the time," adds doc. MUDr. Hana Houstkova, CSc.

Data backed by research:

In clinical trials, doctors monitored Nanny under normal conditions in nine different paediatric departments in five Czech hospitals long-term. In addition, they gave Nanny to mothers to test at home.

"Mothers particularly appreciated its reliability, simple operation, and a sense of certainty that gave them peace of mind," says doc. MUDr. Hana Houstkova, CSc.

It was also noted in clinical trials that:

  • the operation and use of Nanny is very easy,
  • the set parameters (alarm after 20 seconds without a breath or less than 8 breaths per minute) are generally recognised for safe monitoring,
  • Nanny also works flawlessly in standing prams, stationary baskets and cradles.

"The results speak for themselves and I can confirm that the effectiveness of Nanny monitors has been fully demonstrated in both clinical trials and long-term use," concludes doc. MUDr. Hana Houstkova, CSc.
