GE Healthcare Launches Infant Warmer for Newborns

GE Healthcare announced the launch of its new Panda Warmer for infant care, featuring clinical improvements for labor and delivery that respond to the needs of newborns, caregivers and families.

The Panda’s recessed heater completely eliminates the traditional, often awkward, overhead design, according to the manufacturer. Its sleek, modern design reportedly improves clinician and parent access to the infant, removing overhead obstacles while providing uniform heat across the entire mattress. Heat is delivered to the infant through an hourglass pattern and provides outstanding thermal performance that keeps excess heat away from caregivers.

An optional Integrated Resuscitation System requires minimal set-up time for clinicians to standardize resuscitation protocols across the perinatal care area. GE Healthcare designed this system according to the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) latest Neonatal Resuscitation Program Guidelines, incorporating an integrated Air/O2 Blender and a new T-piece resuscitation option. Another optional feature, advanced SpO2 monitoring, captures the infant’s pulse rate and oxygenation throughout the resuscitation process and displays data on the bed’s full-color control panel.
