Small soft sensor attached to the newborn’s abdomen and certain types of ventilators that tells the ventilator when the infant is taking a breath in. It helps to match ventilator support with the infant’s own breathing efforts. When the baby starts to take a breath, the synchronizer tells the ventilator and triggers the ventilator to provide a ventilator breath to help the infant. Other types of ventilators use sensors near the breathing tube to sense when the child is taking a breath in.
