Neonatal Care Equipment:Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

What’s in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit?

 

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is the part of the hospital that provides care for premature or sick newborn babies.The medical equipment used in the NICU is designed to provide a supportive environment for newborn babies, monitor their vital signs, and provide them with the support and care they need.

Babies are admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) because they may:

 

  • Require ventilation and/or continuous positive airway pressure ventilation (CPAP) for respiratory support.
  • Have a serious illness that affects breathing.
  • Are awaiting surgery or have just undergone surgery.
  • Have a serious infection.

 

Equipment used in the NICU

 

To meet the 4 main needs of a newborn baby: warmth, breathing, feeding and blood flow, this equipment protects your baby and keeps him/her comfortable.

 

  • Infant Incubator
  • Infant Radiant Warmer
  • Ventilator
  • Phototherapy Equipment
  • Pediatric Monitor
  • Infusion/Syringe Pump
  • Oxygen Mask

 

1. Infant Incubator

Incubators in the NICU provide a controlled environment for newborns in the NICU, including temperature and humidity, while also providing a barrier from external environmental factors. They are designed to mimic the womb, providing a safe and comfortable place for premature or unwell newborns to grow and develop.

2. Infant Radiant Warmer

 

Radiant heaters are the most basic piece of equipment in the NICU and are used to maintain a newborn’s body temperature and limit metabolic rate. Because sick or premature infants may have

difficulty regulating their body temperature, the heater is used as an artificial support engine to maintain their body temperature.

3. Ventilators

 

Premature or sick babies often have difficulty breathing on their own and need support.There are two common types of ventilators used for babies in the NICU:
Positive pressure ventilators deliver air or oxygen to the baby’s lungs through tubes and can adjust the flow rate according to the baby’s needs.
High-frequency oscillatory ventilators deliver small amounts of air or oxygen to the baby’s lungs at a faster rate than other ventilators.

4. Phototherapy Equipment

 

Neonatal jaundice is more common than you might think and it is normal for babies to be born with slightly higher bilirubin levels. Jaundice levels are often reduced using phototherapy, which exposes the newborn’s skin to a special blue or green light, which helps to break down the bilirubin.

5. Pediatric Monitor

Newborn monitoring devices are used to track vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen levels. These machines provide real-time data that can alert NICU staff to any changes in the newborn’s condition, allowing them to act quickly.

6. Infusion/Syringe Pumps

 

Provide fluids, food and medications that your baby may need. These pumps deliver precise doses at a rate and time that meets your baby’s unique needs.

7. Oxygen Mask

Oxygen masks are suitable for infants who can breathe on their own but still need extra oxygen. Oxygen can be piped directly into the incubator.

8. Ceiling Suspension Bridge

The pendant provides a centralised location for all the medical equipment, gases and electrical outlets needed to care for critically ill newborns.

Applications for medical pendants in the NICU include:

Medical pendants can be equipped with a variety of medical gas outlets such as oxygen, nitrogen and compressed air. These outlets are essential for providing respiratory support and other life-saving treatments to critically ill newborns.

They can be used to support a variety of medical equipment such as ventilators, monitors and infusion pumps. These devices can be easily attached to the pendant and moved around the bedside area as needed.

Can be equipped with electrical outlets to power medical equipment as well as lighting and other devices. This helps reduce the number of cables in the bedside area, which improves safety and reduces clutter.

Can be used to improve communication and coordination among NICU staff. For example, some pendants can be equipped with video monitors that allow staff to view patients from a distance. This can help reduce the need for staff to enter the patient’s room, thereby minimising the risk of infection.

Overall, medical pendants play an important role in the NICU, helping to improve patient safety, increase efficiency and create a more comfortable environment for patients and families.

Conclusion

 

The NICU has the necessary equipment to control the baby’s temperature, oxygen, heart rate and so on. These devices help provide the best possible care and development for premature or sick newborns. Each piece of equipment has a special purpose in the treatment of your baby. Contact us to learn more about some of the devices used in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
