GE Healthcare has announced its new infant warmer bed that features an interestingly positioned heating element :
GE Healthcare announced the launch of its new Panda Warmer for infant care, featuring innovative clinical improvements for labor and delivery that respond to the needs of newborns, caregivers and families. This new technology is showcased this week at the American Association of Respiratory Therapists in Orlando, Fla. from Dec. 1-4.
The most recognizable feature of the new Panda Warmer from GE is the innovative recessed heater that completely eliminates the traditional, often awkward, overhead design. The sleek, modern design improves clinician and parent access to the infant, removing overhead obstacles while providing uniform heat across the entire mattress. Heat is delivered to the infant through an hourglass pattern and provides outstanding thermal performance that keeps excess heat away from caregivers.
An optional Integrated Resuscitation System requires minimal set-up time for clinicians to standardize resuscitation protocols across the perinatal care area. GE designed this system according to the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) latest Neonatal Resuscitation Program Guidelines, incorporating an integrated Air/O2 Blender and a new T-piece resuscitation option. Another optional feature, advanced SpO2 monitoring, captures the infant’s pulse rate and oxygenation throughout the resuscitation process and displays data on the bed’s full-color control panel…
Exclusive Hands Free Alarm Silence allowing a clinician to silence alarms without touching the alarm silence button, helping to reduce cross contamination. Full-color, highly visible display gives clinicians and families clear access to important information. Elimination of nuisance alarms during warm-up mode. The warmer is designed to ensure the mattress is warm and ready, without alarming during warm-up mode. Optional in-bed scale, displaying the weight “greeting-card style” on the full color display, easily visible for parents. The aimable procedure light and dimmable observation lights direct light only where needed for procedures and avoid shining light into a newborn’s sensitive eyes.
