Vein selection in infants is one of the difficult tasks. The Primary aim of selecting veins in an infant is for taking injections. A new medical tool is designed and engineered mainly for locating veins in newborns is called vein viewer also known as neonatal transilluminator, which is used mainly in fatty babies, because it is very difficult to find veins in fatty babies than lean babies. Vein Viewer provides a quick and smooth process for proper vein selection in infants. This tool is beneficial for paediatricians and nurses for selecting the veins in neonates. Transilluminator methods can be used anywhere in the body. With the help of vein viewer, veins can be mapped to avoid valves or bifurcations.

The main use of the infant vein viewer is finding veins in infants especially in fatty babies and this method can be used in all parts of the body. Locating veins with LED cold light source. Infant veins can be mapped to avoid valves.This O-shaped designs helps to secure the veins, provides safe access, provides traction on the skin and easy needle insertion.

The Ibis Medical (http://www.ibismedical.net/ ) is one of the leading manufacturers and supplier of neonatal products. Ibis Medical designed this Neonatal Vein Viewer in an appropriate manner for ease of use.

NEONATAL BLOOD LANCET – PAINLESS WAY TO DRAW BLOOD

Blood is drawn from neonates in the same ways that it is done for older patients, from the vein or artery. When drawing from the vein, a tourniquet can be used. It can be harder than older patients due to the size of the vein or artery being smaller. Therefore, NICU nurses are often some of the best healthcare professionals at getting blood from any patient. Blood draw process is often painful and unsafe method if not done properly. Nowadays most of the hospitals use a device called neonatal heel prick or neonatal blood lancet , a medical tool specifically engineered for drawing blood from a newborn. It is a reliable product for collecting the blood from a baby. Neonatal blood lancet can reduce the pain and also helps in optimising the blood flow.

Ibis Medical is one of the largest manufacturers of Neonatal Blood Lancet”. Ibis Medical has developed a unique design which helps to use the device in the easiest and safest manner. Ibis Medical has a strong distribution network across the world. Major features of Ibis Medical’s neonatal blood lancet are given below.

  • High-quality stainless steel blade
  • Precise incisions for reduced bruising

  • Easy trigger activates blade quickly, safely and precisely.
  • Color-coded for easy identification of preemie and newborn devices.
  • Disposable, one-time use devices.
  • It has TYVEK sealed blister package,
  • High speed and accurate glide path,
  • Large firing button for precise placement
  • Specific colour for each size for greater visual distinction.

How to use:-

When it comes to its usage hand/heels should be hygienic, once the baby is immobilised puncture into the skin, if it enters into the side of the vein take the needle slowly, without removing completely and turn into the vessel and finally, draw the blood slowly.

LED Photo-therapy for Neonatal Jaundice

Excess bilirubin (hyperbilirubinemia) is the main cause of jaundice. Bilirubin, which is responsible for the yellow color of jaundice, is a normal part of the pigment released from the breakdown of “used” red blood cells.

New born infants are especially at high risk of developing hyperbilirubinemia. It is especially more acute in preborn babies. LED Phototherapy is the clinically proven & technically superior method of treating jaundice in infants. IREX 10 brings the high efficiency of well calibrated LED Phototherapy for treating jaundice in newborns. This specially designed budget mode, is designed to operate within the AAP parameters of treating severe cases of jaundice in neonates, optimally and economically.

Hence we are giving High Performance, premium LED Phototherapy, for treatment of newborn jaundice.

  • I REX 10

           Operating I Rex 10 is an ease, with its simple user friendly mechanisms. It is compact and can be used in a variety of places. Its ergonomic Y shaped wheel base slips easily under most warmers or bassinets.

Product Features:

  • Hi Bright Blue LED Technology
  • Spectral Irradiance > 35μ W/ cm2 nm brings superior intensity for faster curing
  • No Ultra violet – No Skin rashes
  • No Infrared – No Fluid loss/weight loss / Hyperthermia. This reduces the need for replenishing fluid loss in the newborn
