Meddo's NICU equipment is designed to meet the specialized needs of newborn infants in neonatal intensive care units. Featuring advanced technology, durability, and reliability, our products can help support better patient outcomes.
NICUs are designed to care for newborns who require intensive medical care due to premature birth or critical illness. Infants born prematurely, under 37 weeks gestation, may require a stay in the NICU to complete some aspects of their physical and mental development. Babies born with serious medical issues, such as congenital heart defects, respiratory problems, neurological conditions, and certain genetic disorders, may also require care in the NICU. In some cases, babies born to mothers who experienced complications during pregnancy or delivery may also require care in the NICU.
NICU equipment provides the specialized medical care and support that preemie babies require to survive and thrive. For example, incubators and warming beds help maintain a stable and controlled environment for the baby's development, while ventilators and CPAP machines provide breathing support. Feeding pumps and IV pumps ensure that the baby receives the necessary nutrition and medication. Phototherapy lights treat jaundice, while apnea monitors and pulse oximeters help monitor the baby's vital signs. All of this equipment helps improve outcomes for preemie babies by providing the appropriate care and support necessary for their unique needs.
