As the recognized specialist in temperature monitoring, NOVAMED USA presents KOALA Infant Warmer to address the need for early active warming and ensure optimal development during this fragile stage of life.
The KOALA Infant Warmer is a multi-layer reusable thermal mattress powered by a portable, lightweight controller. The KOALA mattress fits easily into a standard size bassinet to provide continuous, active underbody warmth at a controllable pre-set temperature.
KOALA's patented conductive carbon polymer thermal layer provides gentle, uniformly distributed underbody warmth, simulating a mother's natural body heat. A layer of pressure relief memory foam provides enhanced support to improve infant circulation and comfort.
100% reusable, KOALA ∆T Infant Warmer is an effective, affordable alternative to a radiant warmer and disposable thermal gel pads.
Maintaining a neutral thermal environment is one of the key challenges faced by newborns in the first precious minutes, hours and days of life. The temperature of the in utero environment is 0.5° C higher than human body temperature. After birth, the infant is exposed to a dramatically colder environment.
Due to the absence of protective body fat, infants are particularly susceptible to cold stress as a result of this sudden change in temperature. Even a healthy, normal-birthweight infant is at risk of developing severe cold stress or hypothermia.
An infant's temperature can drop precipitously after birth, due to multiple sources of heat loss. Through conduction, a significant amount of heat may be lost directly through skin's contact with a surface, such as a cold table in the Labor & Delivery room.
Contact with a warm surface, as provided by KOALA Infant Warmer, has been shown to effectively prevent conduction heat loss. Studies have revealed that the use of warming mattresses in Labor &Delivery significantly improves infants' core body temperature.
