According to the World Health Organization, more than 20 million low-birth weight preterm babies are born annually around the world. Tragically, more than 4 million of these babies die within a month of being born. All it requires to avoid most of these deaths is to keep the preterm infants warm.
A baby’s body temperature drops as soon as it is outside the controlled environment of the mother’s womb. Premature babies have very little body fat. Unable to regulate their body temperature, they die.
The CIC 101 has been designed to provide warmth to preterm infants and simultaneously meet the critical situations that may arise in providing care for such babies. The CIC 101 is remarkably convenient and user friendly, given its capabilities. The space around the infant is organized efficiently for the convenience of care givers, the mother and visitors. It is easy to clean.
Secure Thermal Environment
Infrared radiation produced by a quartz heating element is spread uniformly by a parabolic reflector all over the baby. The heater unit can be swivelled to accommodate mobile X-ray equipment so that transporting the baby is avoided.
World’s First Oval Shaped Bed
This Phoenix innovation permits quick access to the baby, which is critical during resuscitation. The bed can also be tilted and rotated.
The height of the entire unit may be adjusted according to the convenience of the care giver. The system features foot-operated pedals that leave the hands free.
The halogen examination lamp is switched on and off using another Phoenix innovation, the non-touch system, which was designed to reduce the risk of spreading infections in hospitals. The care giver just needs to wave his or her hand near a sensor to control the lamp. The brightness of the lamp may be adjusted similarly.
Oxygen saturation levels are measured non-invasively using well established Masimo Technology.
The baby-friendly CPAP unit is compatible with both bubble and flow driven systems. This unit features accurate electronic blending of air and oxygen.
The baby’s heart rate, temperature and weight trend charts are presented in a form that is easy to interpret. The display provides parents a record of their baby’s progress.
Ample storage space for sterile supplies and instruments is provided by trays that can be placed at six convenient places. The Mayo trays and rugged IV poles support even monitors.
