An extra step towards Neonatal Care

NICU or the Neonatal Intensive Care Units are those units that provide the newborn babies an atmosphere for their physical adjustments after the time of their birth. It helps them adjust their physical temperature with that of the outside atmosphere. It also ensures that the newborn attains and maintains the same health conditions after being delivered. Another major advantage of these kinds of units is that they avoid any kind of health hazards to the neonatal after the immediate birth.

What the preferred methods of neonatal care?

A wide variety of neonatal care products are made availed for the neonatal that are safe to use and ensure complete health of the child. These products look into the basic and specialized needs of the newborn with the basic procedures to use. They provide a complete package to the neonatal with equipments which are user friendly. One of the most user friendly technologies developed by them is the ECMO.

What is an ECMO?

ECMO is nothing but Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation. In simpler terms, it works as an artificial heart and helps in providing blood pressure support. When compared to the cardiopulmonary support devices, ECMO is long lasting to use. They are connected as small tubes which are passed on to the heart through a small incision. Once the device is connected, it primarily drains the blood out of the baby’s body and pumps oxygenated blood back into their body.

 

 

ECMO monitoring methods

The ECMO process can be easily monitored using monitors that help in the quick registration of the child’s condition. This can be perfectly done with the help of the newly developed monitors that make a timely registration of the child’s health. There are normally three levels of monitoring followed in neonatology.

These include:

Cardiac monitors: these help in monitoring the heart beat of the new born and adjusting its rhythm and pace

Pulse oximeters: These are devices that are wrapped around the baby’s wrists and foot in order to measure the passing levels of oxygen.

Respiratory monitors: These are devices that use connectors to measure the baby’s breathing which ensure that the newborn experiences no such discomforts in breathing.

There are even some latest developments with regard to IVs which are no more a technical term to the people. Some of these are:

Peripheral IV lines: These are the IV lines that are visible at the periphery and are used for the circulation of medicines into the baby’s body. These are in fact the safest way of usage of IVs for premature babies.

PICC lines: Are actually a bit longer than the regular IVs and are safer to use. Insertion of PICC lines is one of the first things that are done after the baby is admitted in the NICU.

Umbilical catheters: This is another kind of device that is connected through an artery in the umbilical cord where, a vein or a tube can be used for medical administration, blood pressure monitoring, painless blood sampling, and other procedures.

There are also an additional variety of neonatal equipments such as:

Feeding tubes: A feeding tube is a tube that connects the nose or mouth of the newborn directly with its stomach. This function is made much simpler to those babies who are weak enough to receive the nutrition content from nose or mouth.

Incubators: Incubators is a very common device to the adults. It helps provide artificial warmth, thus maintain the body temperature.

Phototherapy: Pre matured babies are most likely to face diseases like jaundice. Phototherapy is a kind of procedure procured by transmitting more amounts of bili lights (lights filled that help break bilirubin that causes jaundice).

Best Preemie Clothes for newborns

Child care begins with hygienic, safe and child friendly clothes. However these clothes have to be worn only under certain conditions. After the child undergoes its systematic checkup of retaining its physical health after birth, the child would now be in need of warm clothes to wear. Thus, there needs to be a permanent solution to the post birth healthcare.

These come in the most child friendly shapes and sizes and are comfortable wears to the new born. These baby care products range from a wide variety of wind shielding hats, easily usable diaper covers and sleep wears for the babies especially when in crib. These help the babies stay warm, maintain and regulate the body temperature at a periodical basis. The parents too, find them user friendly as they are made in accordance with all the medical conditions that the child is likely to undergo.

Thus, the preemie clothes available in market ensure the complete health of the child and keep them comfortable under all conditions.
